McLean, VA – Trinity United Methodist Church completed the Moving Forward Together – “Envisioning our Future” Capital Campaign in September of 2009 to reduce a very large debt created from new construction. The building of a new Education & Meeting Space, Entry Plaza, Fellowship Lobby, Chapel, Nursery and Kitchen have resulted in much more functional use of the campus. The campaign was a success due to the commitment of Pastor James C. Sprouse, Campaign Chair James Wilson, other church leaders and members of the congregation.
As stated by the Senior Pastor, Jim Sprouse, “The Klote approach to capital campaign fund raising brings people together and unites them under a common goal. We found here at Trinity that the Klote approach connected us with our church members and helped us discover what God has in mind for our church in mission and ministry.”
Jim Wilson, Campaign Chair, commented that “The decision to hire Klote and Associates, because of their proven background and experience, their specific processes, and their unerring focus on church-related fundraising, proved to be a very sound and positive decision. We couldn’t have done better!”
Along with the guidance of a full-time, on-site Campaign Director from James D. Klote & Associates, Inc., Trinity was able to receive pledges for $3M, which is more money than had ever been raised by the church and more than had been raised in three previous campaigns combined.
