Family of Christ Lutheran Church
Family of Christ completed their strategic plan to move forward as the best church they could be, for God, their community and each other. They wanted to be able to achieve “excellence in worship.” And to share the love of Jesus with those outside of their community, neighbors and members. To do so, they identified needed improvements and developed their Foundation For Our Future campaign to address those needs.
With the enthusiastic support of their community, Family of Christ surpassed their $2.4 million goal! The funds raised will support their important plans. They will pay off debt and improve their worship space, church, office, parking lot, infrastructure, and other capital needs. Being able to pay off $1,400,000 of debt will free up funds to hire much needed staff. It was a tremendous effort to achieve their “excellence in worship” goal.
“Our experience with Walsh & Associates at Family of Christ Lutheran Church has been exceptional from beginning to end. They listened carefully to our capital and operational needs, as well as designed a program to help reduce our congregational debt. Every step of the process was professional and aligned perfectly with their proposed timeline. We highly recommend Walsh & Associates. We thank them for all they did to bless and extend Christ’s kingdom.”
– Rev. Keith Grimm, Pastor
“I was very impressed with the format. It was set up to get the church leadership involved, which is very imperative for a successful campaign. Asking for support is very hard, but having the tools to show the congregation that this is their church home is the main goal. As a church, we need to reach the lost or those that are looking for a church home. I think we achieved the goal of knowing we need to reach out to the youth and our community. With the funds available, we can now proceed with excellence as Jesus would have us do.”

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.
