ISSmax SUCCESS STORIES
ISSmax was way beyond a blessing to our church. They enabled us to clearly define our vision and to mobilize the entire church around it. The campaign itself gave us a stewardship blueprint. Most of our people are new Christians so they had not reached a place of true integrity in stewardship. As we implemented the ISSmax strategies and resources, church involvement went up. Dozens of people who were inactive before became involved in a Campaign Team and are now ser ving in other ministries of the church. People are making sacrifices that I never would have imagined. We have seen awesome spiritual growth and renewal in our congregation. We ended our campaign process with total commitments of over $550,000—nearly five times our annual giving at the time. We are still celebrating!

Jim called me about 15 minutes ago with the final number. He asked if I was sitting down. I was. $115,900.00 in pledges!!! God is good. I expected a big number tonight but I didn’t think we would already surpass our goal. Unbelievable… no, believable! What a mighty God we serve. Thank you, Bob, for your part in this. Your support and encouragement have been indispensable. Indeed this is God’s timing. Thanks again.
