The Rejoice and Renew capital campaign at Epiphany was to raise funds for extensive remodeling and building on their church campus. Their members generously supported the campaign plans by exceeding their goal and raising 3.36 times their annual offering.
“Walsh & Associates placed the proper perspective on the giving process, that it is about the people and relationships, not so much on the dollar amount. Our interactions with people were successful when we listened to their thoughts, needs and desires, putting aside the ultimate pledge amount. The campaign certainly maximized the giving of our members. The model of asking for gifts in certain ranges made our congregation properly stretch the gifts God has already given us. Those ranges were great conversation starters for each household, helping them decide on a truly sacrificial gift.”
– Mark & Amy Wilson, Advance Gifts Chairs
Music was heard in the Calvary church building from its first pipe organ in 1895, and its second in 1911. Their existing organ was dedicated in 1930 and last overhauled 43 years ago. Calvary United’s Renew & Rejoice campaign raised funds to buy a brand new, custom-made pipe organ for their beautiful New-Gothic style sanctuary.
“The Renew & Rejoice Campaign for the replacement of the pipe organ at our church produced a lot of success for the spirit and life of Calvary Church and the hope for a new pipe organ. The work of the Walsh team was extraordinary and very cooperative in so many ways. I am a retired pastor and have worked on a capital campaign in the past, but Walsh had the right staff and the right professional organization needed to do this work for Calvary. It was a joy to work with our consultant who really knows the ins and outs of doing a very successful campaign. I certainly would recommend Walsh & Associates to other churches in the future for their capital needs.”
