Father Serra Parish started with only 300 families on August 15, 1987. Twenty five years later they had grown ten times larger – to a little over 3,000 families! This meant they had larger numbers of students in religious education and confirmation preparation, and the parish offered many more activities and ministries.
To address their various needs, Blessed Junipero Serra Parish developed a four-phased master plan to construct four buildings to alleviate their space issues. Walsh & Associates was hired for their campaign to raise funds for Phase I to build an Early Childhood Educational Center and Additional Parking. The Forward in Faith – Fulfilling Our Mission campaign raised funds toward 5,200 square feet of additional space including four classrooms, administrative and director’s offices, and an area for a nurse. This would be the fulfillment of the parish’s vision and dreams for an early childhood program.
“Siempre Adelante” – “Moving Forward Always”, Father Serra’s saying is a constant encouragement to always be moving in the direction of serving the Kingdom of God.

Helping Churches Reach New Heights in their Capital Campaigns
Our mission is to be great stewards, to live up to the Parable of Talents and to bring out the best in those we serve. Our consistent and proven-to-be-successful approach to directing church capital campaigns helps assure this. We just work with churches, only do capital campaigns and ground them in prayer, scripture and sound stewardship teachings. Then we combine this with practical, proven-to-be-most-productive operating methods. This not only assures you of getting the best results and best return on your capital campaign investment financially, but also, that your church will grow spiritually and in community and will be more equipped and excited than ever about doing God’s will through the works of your church.
