The question we get asked most often is, “Why should we use a capital campaign consultant?”
If you are asking yourself the same question, we’d love to share four reasons you should partner with a capital campaign consulting company.
1- The Bible teaches that impact is multiplied in partnership.
- Deuteronomy 32:30 says, “How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?”
Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.”
1 Kings 5 tells the story of Solomon's and Hiram’s partnership when building God’s Temple in Jerusalem. They were able to accomplish more together than apart and were BOTH better off because of their partnership.
2 - You will raise more money with a partner than you will by yourself.
Our statistics show, on average, our partners are raising anywhere between 100% - 150% of their church’s annual budget in a campaign.
If you were to lead the campaign without a partner, you could expect to raise between 50% - 75% of your church’s annual budget.
3 - You will avoid unexpected missteps when it comes to strategy and timing.
You do not know what you do not know.
We have partnered with over 4,500 churches in capital campaigns since 1992. We know the mistakes churches so often make, what effects they will have on a campaign, and how to prevent these things from happening.
The challenges you do not even see right now, we have seen 4,500 times before. Our intelligence from our experience will help your campaign be far better than you could ever imagine.
4 - The opportunity cost of an internally-led capital campaign.
There IS a cost to conducting an internally-led capital campaign. It is the added workload on your staff and volunteers, and the inability to maximize your church’s full giving potential.
There are many more reasons why partnering with a capital campaign consulting firm is more beneficial than doing a project on your own, and we would love to share those with you as well!
