St. Mark Presbyterian Church Newport Beach, California

Campaign Purpose

In the short-term St. Mark directed its funds and energy to improving its facilities so that in the long-term their faithful could reap the benefits in future programs, services, and mission work. Their We Are St. Mark capital campaign's purpose was to finish what their past leaders started and turn their focus toward the future. They exceeded their goal to raise funds to retire their debt to remove that financial burdan and free up funds for their important mission outreach, work for systemic change, and to hire an associate pastor.

Testimonial

“The campaign kick-off was very well done. The final report contained helpful material. Our consultant knew the Walsh system and was very nice, friendly, and committed ... We met our goal and for that I am thankful.” - Rev. Mark Davis

Campaign Purpose

First Presbyterian’s Building God’s Future campaign was in effort to raise the funds required to refurbish their organ, repair their parking lot, replace their heating and air handling, enhance accessibility for all members, and update their kitchen.

Under the guidance of Walsh & Associates, they exceeded their goal which enabled them to complete their entire proejct and tithe 10% to missions.

Testimonial

Campaign Purpose

The aim of Expanding His Reach – Building on the Cornerstone campaign was to raise the funds required to build a Christian Life Center. This large facility includes an Education Center with classrooms, offices, storage and multi-use space, and an Activity Center with social and recreational space.

Testimonial

“We have been very pleased with the results of our campaign. We are now just over our goal of $2 million in pledges, and we believe we will meet our challenge goal, allowing us to build both phases of our Christian Life Center. Our director has provided the leadership, organization, materials and drive that has gotten us to this point in such a short time. We could not have done it without your template for success, our director’s hard work and skill and God’s blessing. I especially appreciate the emphasis on the power of prayer to lead the way. Doubters of our ability to raise the funds have become full supporters now. I would certainly recommend your team to other churches planning a capital campaign.”

Campaign Purpose

Rebuilding for Tomorrow – Today was First Presbyterian Church’s effort to fund their plans to repair, retrofit, and upgrade their church in response to damage from the Napa 2014 earthquake. Both their building and their church community needed to recover from the damage of this event. Their efforts resulted in their ability to repair and upgrade their sanctuary and a renewed sense of fellowship.

Testimonial

“Walsh & Associates recently assisted our church in raising the necessary funding to repair and renovate our historic sanctuary in downtown Napa. I want to share with you how pleased I am with the process and the results. From the very beginning to the end of the process, our church found the staff from Walsh to be so very professional and knowledgeable about the unique task of conducting a capital fundraising campaign. I could comment on the various aspects of the process, but the bottom line was the results! Walsh & Associates delivered on what they promised!”
