ELCA Church Capital Campaigns
Walsh & Associates, Church Capital Campaign Specialists began its work in faith-based stewardship almost forty years ago. Since 1991 we’ve focused solely on churches and providing capital campaign direction and pre-campaign feasibility and planning studies. Our commitment is to help churches live up to their God-given potential. To get the best results and return on investment possible in church capital campaigns. We understand the deep faith and unique challenges of ELCA churches as they strive to better serve their members and communities. Here are the Evangelical Lutheran Church capital campaigns we’ve led to success in this diocese.
“The professional guidance of our consultant, along with the materials and workable timeline provided, have been instrumental in the entire process of bringing our congregation from many being unsure about the prospects of reaching our goal, to an overwhelming sense of enthusiasm and momentum as we move forward. I would definitely recommend Walsh & Associates to other churches with big visions and worthy goals for strengthening their mission of God’s kingdom work.”
Rev. Gary Anderson American Lutheran Church, ELCA, Worthington, Minnesota
“Walsh & Associates assisted us with our Preserving the Past – Securing our Future capital campaign by providing a detailed plan along with a campaign director who was instrumental in keeping our efforts on point. We have nearly completed our renovations and are currently worshipping in our beautiful church and members are able to see the fruits of their efforts. Members constantly remark on the wonderful changes which has resulted in continued donations. Without the plan from Walsh & Associates and the drive and guidance of our consultant, we perhaps would not have reached our goal. For that we are ever thankful and certainly appreciate your efforts.”
Philip Nass, Advanced Gifts Chair, First German Evangelical Lutheran Church, WELS, Maintowoc, Wisconsin
“Our campaign director worked closely with our pastor to identify a campaign cabinet that would work closely with her on the campaign. The roles of each cabinet member were clearly defined, and then she worked closely with us to identify goals, develop action plans, and complete the work of the campaign. Her communication was clear and direct throughout. Our director was able to provide support, but also recognized the unique nature of our congregation, allowing us to make the campaign work for us. Throughout the process Walsh & Associates provided us with the organizational direction and support to complete a successful campaign. This is not something we could have accomplished on our own. It is without reservation that I recommend Walsh & Associates.”

We have a small, capable, committed, and Christian staff who see their work as a calling not just a career, as an expression of their love for the Lord, and as an opportunity to do God’s will and work.
We base our capital campaign operating philosophy on the biblical Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14–30), which implores us to be and do our best, to make the most of the gifts that God has given us and to strive to live up to our potential in all we do, especially all we do in God’s name.
