When considering capital campaign consulting services, cost often becomes a subject of debate which fails to focus on the correct factors. Most often the church does not like to spend money; it is typically frugally minded. This is not a bad thing, however sometimes it is pursued to a fault. While stewardship demands due consideration be given to the cost of the investment, the church does itself a disservice by focusing on the cost of the service and not on the net value the value gained from the capital stewardship engagement. The church can easily avoid this snare.
