St. John's Lutheran Church, Le Mars, IA

Campaign Purpose

The members of St. John's, supported by Walsh & Associates, exceeded their goal to raised the funds needed to restore and renew their facilities in order to better serve their members and guests for many years to come. Their Rooted & Growing capital campaign was a success in supporting their desire to protect and preserve their beautiful church as well as ensure a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for all.

Rooted & Growing Church Capital Campaign

"Members and friends of St. John’s Lutheran are fortunate to worship and fellowship in a beautiful, historic church. The roots of our current structure are strong and have stood the test of time. But, our aging building now has some critical issues that we, as a congregation, need to address. We want to be good stewards of the gift that God has given us. It’s time to tend to the maintenance needs of our “plant.”

Testimonial

“In order to build not just for our current members, but for generations to come, we knew we would have to undertake the single largest capital campaign in the 150 year history of our church. We determined that Walsh was the company that could best help us realize our goals. Throughout the process, Walsh understands that we are not just trying to build a building, but trying to build the kingdom.” - Rev. Mike Morgan, Sr. Pastor

Campaign Purpose

The Together We Build campaign for St. Luke the Evangelist was overwhelmingly supported by their members who raised over 11 times annual giving. The funds were planned to construct their new worship center, Catholic grade school, and education center.

Testimonial

“Walsh did a wonderful job of helping us plan and implement our capital campaign. We have been involved with capital campaigns at our previous parish. In comparing this campaign to our previous experience, the approach that Walsh & Assoc. promotes is far superior. Walsh views their work as a calling from God, not just a method of securing money for a project. Their approach is very person-centered and does not encourage any sort of hard sell tactics. This was very refreshing for all of us who were involved. It was very much a team and parish community building process.” - Bruce & Deborah Mehlhop, Advanced Gift Co-Chairs
