I am Joe Cumbest, the husband of the 2019 Sr Warden (think chairman of the board) at Christ Church Midland. I am also a founding member of the church and the leader of the Men’s Ministry and a former Vestry Member. As you can figure my wife and I talked about church decisions like the use of outside Capital Campaign support. In the discussion of hiring an outside company for the capital campaign, I told her I opposed using outside support since we should be able to do it ourselves. In this case I was wrong. The consultant has done an outstanding job organizing then plugging himself into Christ Church to ensure the message is communicated.
In my opinion, we would not be at $8.5MM of the $13.5 needed with only 40% pledged without the consultant’s leadership and guidance. Money well spent!
