Foundational Truth #3: A capital campaign is not magic; it is simply hard work on the part of people who are properly equipped. For a successful capital campaign, there is no shortcut or easy way; there is no magic formula code, no silver bullet, and no secret handshake.
Wonderful things happen when the church takes the time and effort to clearly communicate need and biblical truth, and then follow that up with a clear and unapologetic request for financial support. However, this process takes time and effort. A capital campaign is fairly simple in concept, but it is hard work! A successful campaign takes proper planning and execution with attention to detail - and a lot of prayer.
