Every church capital campaign carries a cost. Some costs are easily identified, tracked, negotiated and completed but not all project and church campaign costs are so obvious, though. These price tags make huge withdrawals not tracked at all in church financial systems. These intangible costs arrive in subtle, sneaky, camouflaged and unexpected ways that ambush church leadership. One ensnared with these frequently overlooked costs, the price leadership pays can be deadly, pulling life and energy away from a season that should be abundant in life-giving celebration of the mission.
We created this resource to help churches understand the hidden costs associated with a do-it-yourself capital campaign.
Do-It-Yourself Church Capital Campaigns
Generis brought a wise and needed outside perspective to our development planning.
Generis began where great consultants do; they asked probing questions and then they listened … carefully! Out of their listening, they asked questions that took us to deeper and deeper levels of our reality. And then…boom, they provided insights that named what ‘is’ and gave insight and recommendations that pointed us clearly to a preferred future. Better than I could have imagined.
Working with Generis helped us experience the blessing of leveraging our wealth in this life, in order to have an eternal impact.
