My wife and I have been working with our local church, along with our consultant, on our “Live the Journey” campaign. Christ’s Greenfield Lutheran Church and School (Gilbert, Arizona) has been blessed to have the consultant driving our efforts and coordinating the Steering Committee in a most efficient and worthwhile fashion. He is a great asset to our church and school and we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him and we sincerely appreciate his passion and drive for getting things done.
The consultant always has a positive outlook and very appropriate responses to questions that arise. He has a terrific knack for inserting comments/responses during discussions that keep our Steering Committee on track and moving forward. We especially appreciate the weekly communication meetings with the committee and the fact they are targeted to one-hour sessions. The meetings are always well planned, the agendas and handouts “spot-on” appropriate, and we always leave the session feeling good about the progress of the campaign.
The consultant has contributed to our spiritual growth as a parish by personally promoting a new Monday night (once a month) prayer service called the “Petition.” His testimonies and commitment to attend and participate are heartfelt and very much appreciated. And we have enjoyed working with him on Sunday mornings setting up and “working” the campaign display in our campus courtyard. Conversations always include choice observations, reflections, humor, and appreciation for sharing life.
We feel that the consultant is representing James D Klote & Associates very well for our church and school. He is a delightful, energetic, and admirable leader and we are so thankful for his dedicated service. In fact, we have asked him several times to consider moving to Gilbert to become a member of our parish. He, of course, declines the offer, but knows our invite is sincere.
Thanks for sending us the consultant to shepherd our campaign!
