When God has given you and your church a vision for expansion that is beyond yourself, you need a premiere capital campaign strategy.
Our primary capital campaign consultant, Jack Strom, has raised over $155,000,000 in lifetime funds to expand the local church. His 30+ years of fundraising experience is invaluable to churches like yours.
Because we believe your church is uniquely created, the effort to expand should likewise be uniquely created to perfectly match you!
Your church is unique. Therefore, a cookie-cutter approach to your stewardship needs will never work. That is why at The Hardy Group we get right in the saddle with you to craft an approach to raising needed funds. We are in it with you to advance that which God has called you to do at the church.
We do not do capital campaigns like others you may have heard of or experienced. We provide you the most personal attention. We move quickly, and we’ll never put you in a pre-created box. In cooperation with you and your leadership team we customize our approach specific for you.
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
We take an a la carte approach to our Capital Campaign Consulting. Since every church is different its needs differ, and we understand that. So we offer various segments to our services that allow us to work with you where you need it most.
We break our services into segments so you can invest as much or as little as fits your budget. At the end of the day, we want you to be successful in raising every dollar you need to make God’s vision of expanded facilities or ministries a reality in your church.
The primary segments include:
Preparation & Pledges
We find that the campaign preparation time is normally five to seven months beginning with an early onsite visit and culminating in the collection of the pledges. We will be engaged with you throughout these months. In fact, we will guide you every step of the way and be a 24/7 resource to you. There will be nothing you face we haven’t seen before.
Following the preparation time, most churches ask us to assist them in bringing the pledged monies in. At the end of the day, pledges do not pay the bills. Cash does. We have an extensive process that has proven to be extremely successful at the churches we have served.
One church our primary consultant, Jack Strom, worked with did an $8 Million campaign and the follow-up process (which we can provide you) brought in an additional $1 Million.
This world is a visually stimulated world. Your ability to tell stories through video that motivate to pledge and motivate to give can make all the difference in the world in terms of the overall success of the campaign.
We offer extensive video production that can be used in your campaign if you choose. Our creative video specialist has vast experience producing videos for mega-churches that motivate people to give.
LET’S START THE CONVERSATION
If you are like most pastors who face the need to raise needed capital, you say, “How in the world do I do that?” That is where The Hardy Group comes in to play. If you wonder if we could help, there is only one way to find out.
Use the form above to start the conversation. This non-commitment form will ask for basic information allowing Dick Hardy and Jack Strom to initiate a discovery conference call and see where you are at in your journey at the church.
You have nothing to lose to talk. It will help you determine next steps for you and the church. So let’s start talking.
