Capital Campaign Feedback

I had a status call today with a church capital campaign client this morning, and the chairperson had a most insightful and encouraging comment.  The church is two weeks away from their Commitment Sunday when everyone will bring their initial offerings and ongoing pledge commitments for the 3-year giving period.

His comment to me was the leadership team felt that they already had a successful campaign and that if they were to call it quits today and not take up the collection and pledges, that their campaign was worth it in terms of spiritual growth, team building, unity, and involvement of such a large part of the body.  Praise the Lord, that’s the way it should be; like I say, it is not about the money.
