Foundational Truth #7: A capital campaign takes time to do right - don’t rush it
Ideally, the church should make the decision to begin a capital campaign at least 4-6 and perhaps as many as 12 months before you plan on being in front of the congregation.
It takes time to recruit and train a leadership team, and it takes time to communicate need, exposit spiritual truth, and prayerfully seek the Lord. Remember, for many of those in the congregation, you will be combating a lifetime of bad thinking as it applies to “their” money. You only get one shot at doing it right, so take the time.
