As the senior pastor of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church it has been my pleasure to watch, observe and experience the fund raising leadership of the Klote Company method and our Consultant. I know that I speak for the leadership of St. Luke’s in applauding and appreciating our Klote Consultant for the many skills he brings to his craft.
Having been in the ministry for over 40 years and having experienced no less than five capital campaigns in my previous congregation, I must say that hiring Klote has been one of the wisest decisions this congregation could have made. The entire focus on good, strong financial stewardship has been lifted up and has caused many in our congregation to probably make the largest financial gift of their life to their congregation.
The Klote Consultant brings a strong sense of professionalism with him as he guides, trains and equips volunteers to do the important task of asking fellow members for a financial commitment. His patience and skill in training and encouraging volunteers to feel good about their task will leave long-lasting benefits to our congregation.
