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.
There are a lot of capital campaign companies, some of them quite expensive, that will help your church with a capital campaign. Since almost every campaign consulting firm follows the same basic process that is based on best practices, how do you compare and select the one that is best for your church campaign? While price will play a role, it should not be the deciding factor. You need to find a firm and consultant that is a good spiritual and personality fit for your church and that is flexible in their ability to provide you the level of service you require.
