“Aha!” moments from a capital campaign

Have you ever been a part of a capital campaign?  If so, you were probably much smarter at the end of the process than when you began.  I have been a part of over 100 professionally and personally.  I’d like to think that I have learned something over the past 12 years.

I was recently asked to write a series of posts for Matt Steen and his blog www.churchthought.com about this very topic.  I was quite humbled that Matt would want to share my thoughts on generosity with his readers.   We came up with 5 “Aha!” moments learned from capital campaigns.  

Matt ran the series for the past 6 weeks (it included an introductory post as well). He has a feature every Friday called ‘Finance Fridays’ and I was privileged to be a part of it.  Thanks to Matt for this opportunity.  

You can access the entire series at www.churchthought.com .  Matt was kind enough to create a table of contents where you can access each post in the series.  

BTW; are you planning some type of fall generosity initiative (capital or debt reduction)?  If so, it is time to get started with the planning.  

I encourage you to subscribe to Matt’s blog as you will find his content quite good and on a variety of topics related to the church.

Matt Steen on Church Thought:

I created this site to be a resource for church leaders of all types.  Leadership in the church is a constantly evolving art form and takes intentional effort in order for us to stay up to speed on all that is going on out there.   Everyday I will be sharing articles, stories, and blog posts that I hope you would find interesting and relevant to your role as a church leader.  You will also find some of my own thoughts, and those of different experts in fields related to church ministry.
