Executing a church capital campaign is part science and part art. Some of the techniques that worked well in times past are not as effective today. There have been, and will continue to be, refinements and adaptation in the process of capital fundraising. Part of the art of the campaign is adapting those processes (the science) to a church’s culture, circumstances, needs, and time line.
Many of the principles of the modern church capital campaign have their foundation in both Old and New Testament examples. The art of the campaign involves properly bringing to light and applying the truth of the scriptures regarding giving in an effectual and culturally relevant manner.
While some processes and practices have changed or adapted to the times, many remain unchanged and are the foundational elements for all successful church capital campaigns. Some things just don’t change; we call these Foundational Truths. If you approach your capital campaign understanding these truths, you will have a much more spiritually and financially productive campaign.
