Why Hire a Church Capital Campaign Consultant?
- Raising more money
- Making a greater spiritual impact
- Not having to reinvent the wheel
- Reducing stress, time, and effort
- Avoiding the risk & consequences of a failed capital campaign
The simple answer is that history shows your church will raise more money using a church capital campaign consultant.
Figuring out for yourself how to execute a church capital campaign might work if:
- You are diligent and very disciplined
- You have a few months of spare time
- You are more than just a little bit lucky
- Whether you do it well, is another matter
A capital campaign is part science and part art. Much like learning to fly, you can’t learn it all from a book, you only learn to do it correctly by experience.
One of the biggest challenges is that even if you were to learn, discover or intuit the right steps, the human tendency is to eliminate, bypass or downplay the parts of the campaign that you don’t understand, are not comfortable with, or for which you don’t understand the importance. For these and a variety of other reasons, churches that do it themselves cheat themselves out of financial and spiritual results.
A Church Capital Campaign Consultant Will Help You Raise More Money Than Doing It Yourself
As a general rule, churches who try a do-it -yourself capital campaign typically only raise 50% of the amount raised by churches who hire a professional capital campaign consultant. In a church capital campaign, like many other things, you must discover all the right steps to take, execute those steps in the correct order, and do it right the first time. At the end of the day, it will not cost you anything to receive the advantage of proper process, godly counsel and coaching, and the “bits and pieces” that go into a successful (as opposed to the other kind) church capital campaign.
This is too important and too complex of a process not to do properly. You really cannot afford not to get professional help from an experienced church capital campaign consultant.

A Church Capital Campaign Consultant Will Save You Time and Effort
An experienced coach will help your church organize and equip the team more quickly and effectively. The alternative is for someone on staff to try to figure it all out, learn how to lead the campaign and then recruit, train, and support the team. Most of the pastoral staff that I know already have far more to do than they have time in which to do it. Do you really have the extra staff, the free time, the critical skills, and spiritual gifting to do this well, and to do it well the first try? Sadly, they don’t teach anything about raising money in seminary or Bible college, there is only one way to get this knowledge, and that is by experience. If you don’t have it – get it.
