United Church in Walpole
Dating back to 1721, the mission of United Church in Walpole is to worship, teach, and serve in the traditions of their congregational heritage, according to the teachings of Jesus Christ, for the benefit of all humankind. They reach out and change lives with the good news of God’s love.
United Church in Walpole is called to manifest the living God by ministering to their congregants and community, protecting the environment, rejecting racism, fighting for those who are powerless, sharing earthly and spiritual resources, embracing diversity, and above all, loving God. To effectively serve and support the programs and ministries of the church, and under the guidance of Walsh & Associates, they sought to thoughtfully improve the functionality, security, and safety of their facilities.
Their Foundations for Our Future campaign to improve their church raised over eight times their annual giving! This enthusiastic support was shown for the church’s plans to build an addition for Children’s Ministry, a Church Meeting Center, a new church lobby, a rooftop garden, new restrooms, and much more. They will also be installing new infrastructure, accessibility, wayfinding, and safety and security updates. Many other renovations and maintenance issues will be addressed as well through this successful campaign effort.
“This campaign surpassed all of my wildest expectations regarding what we could even hope to accomplish. I cannot thank Walsh & Associates enough. It has been well worth the effort and expense!”
– Rev. Anna Flowers, Pastor
“Any time you bring in a professional consultant, you have to wonder what kind of job they will do and if it will be worth the price. I typically try to do things myself, but I knew I was completely out of my depth when it came to a capital campaign. I was impressed with Michael Walsh when he spoke with our building committee and I could not have been more impressed with our consultant from Walsh. Overall this has been a very positive experience. We would have been lost if we would have tried to do the campaign on our own. I would enthusiastically recommend Walsh & Associates. ”
– Rev. Chris Forler
“Walsh & Associates delivered what was promised and made what seemed impossible more than possible and achievable. When we doubted ourselves, our campaign director assured us we were on track.”
– Barbara Tausey, Community Gifts Chair

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.
