This letter is to offer tremendous gratitude to Klote and Associates for the phenomenal job both the agency and their consultant have performed while working with Central Lutheran School (CLS). Quite honestly, there was some skepticism as to the impact a consultant could make on a capital campaign, but those concerns were quickly dispelled when the consultant, with the Christ centered guidance, took the lead in the campaign. He not only provided training, but more importantly spiritual guidance and leadership based on Christ’s stewardship teachings. There’s a saying, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” However for us at CLS, when the going got tough the consultant, with the help of the Holy Spirit, lifted our steering committee up and kept us going.
I have no doubt at all that Christ lead us to Klote and Associates, and delivered the consultant to lead and guide our campaign. He is a great leader, motivator, and inspires those with whom he works. I firmly believe that he has enabled CLS to reach levels of giving that have never been seen since the 1950s. I have nothing but great respect and admiration for him, as well as the service that Klote and Associates has provided our school and our member churches. I would, without hesitation, strongly encourage other schools and Christian Churches to utilize the services provided by Klote and Associates. I know in my heart that the consultant is a man of God, as it is shown by his leadership and guidance, and I want to thank him for all he has done for CLS.
