Adding on to St. James’ existing church building a few years ago was a welcomed way to both honor their heritage and provide for their future. And, going into debt for the expansion at the time they did was wise because both construction and financing costs were extremely reasonable. Staying in debt, however, was not good stewardship because it was adversely affecting their ability to live up to their God-given potential.
The Fulfilling Our Promise / Compliendo Nuestra Promesa campaign was undertaken to pay off their mortgage debt. Doing so would make the hundreds of thousands of dollars of annual mortgage payments available for other purposes. Important needs like expanded parking, stained-glass window repairs, finishing the steeple, and building a playground. It would also allow the parish to expand their programs, services, ministries, and out-reach programs. In particular the funds could provide for a possible youth-ministry position and restoring art and Spanish classes.

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.
