St Stephens Lutheran Church & School

Campaign Purpose

St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church has served the Hickory community for over 120 years – doing the faithful work of Connecting All to Christ. Yet, almost every day, they were faced with facility challenges and difficulties accommodating the needs of their congregation’s individuals and groups. This, in turn, hindered their mission and ministry that they were being called by our Lord to fulfill.

To address these challenges they made plans to construct a new Mission & Ministry Center Building. A space that would include a Church & School Welcome Center and Church & School Office Center.  With support from Walsh & Associates, the church & school community rallied behind their Building a Firm Foundation campaign. The funds raised will be used to build the new center to better their church.

Church Capital Campaign Check


” Hiring Walsh & Associates was one of the smartest things we have done. Their team worked with us every step of the way … assisting in setting up a group of people who were passionate about our church’s future. I would highly recommend Walsh to any organization that is looking for help with their Capital Campaign needs.”
– John Link, Campaign Co-Chair

” I have served in three former Capital Campaigns for our new church, new school, and the establishment of our Endowment Fund to benefit the school. This being my Fourth Capital Campaign has by far been the “Best” campaign I have ever participated in. The structure, conducted by Walsh & Associates, was the most detailed oriented and well thought out. I would HIGHLY recommend Walsh & Associates to any church considering a capital campaign.”
– Terry Hollar, Congregation President and Campaign Co-Chair
