I wanted to thank you, on behalf of Gary Memorial United Methodist Church, for the help and guidance you have provided us in our capital campaign to raise 1.8 million dollars to fund God’s vision for our church here in Wheaton, Illinois It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and your associate.
From our first meeting, when we were interviewing companies for this effort, you were heads and shoulders above the rest. Your presentation showed your passion for this work, your understanding of our congregation, and a clear roadmap to get us where God is calling us to be. Sending the consultant showed us how well you listened and understood our church.
Your associate was the right person to help lead us through our campaign. He hit the ground ready to engage our people and build a team to lead the campaign forward. His warmth and enthusiasm helped him to quickly build rapport and relationships with our people. He also brought professionalism and a spiritual sensitivity to this work which allowed for God’s leading in how we would accomplish this campaign. Together, we discerned and built a team, decided on what strategies we would follow and which ones we would discard, and honed our message to the congregation. We stayed focused on relationships and the vision God had for us.
The consultant’s energy was contagious, even when mine was low. He worked as a trusted and skilled colleague with me and our team. He was efficient, organized and very resourceful. You could not have done our church a better service than connecting us with your consultant for this campaign.
We have commitments of over 1.7 million dollars to this point with more and more commitments and visits happening each day. We are thrilled by the help you have given and the ongoing work that God has in mind for our congregation.
