Steier Group By the Numbers
What people are saying about partnering with Fellowship Development
“Most importantly, and distinct from the other firms we considered, the Steier representative was in town, on-site, and personally available for weeks, not one or two, as the campaign was developed and begun. As the campaign went on, our Steier representative came back for visits as well as other personnel from their home base. The services they provided were personally delivered.”
Rev. Dr. Bradley R. Stoltenow
Senior Pastor, Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church – Centennial, Colorado
“Where we benefitted most from our partnership was in the design and grant writing processes, along with the organization of our donor outreach efforts. There was never a time throughout this journey where we felt lost or misguided. In fact, the opposite was true – we felt overwhelmingly prepared to tackle this fundraising effort from the get-go.”
Pastor Matt Schulte
Executive Director, Youth for Christ – Lincoln, Nebraska
“Our on-site campaign manager implemented a capital campaign that helped us garner support from the entire Norfolk community, including members of the Christ Lutheran congregation, school parents, alumni, members of the other LCMS churches in the area and local businesses. He fit in well with our staff and volunteers and he truly cared about our project. He kept us on track the entire way … making our 20-year-old dream a reality.
In addition to our on-site campaign manager, the support we got from the entire team was outstanding. The graphic artist did a beautiful job of designing our campaign materials, including our signature piece, the campaign case statement. A grant writer identified multiple foundations and helped us approach them for support.”

“The experience was transformative for our cathedral community. Not only did we raise the most money that we’ve ever raised for a single project in our 163 year history, but we emerged with more energy and enthusiasm for the future, grew closer to one another, and learned deeper ways to trust our lives, and our life together, to God’s love and the Holy Spirit’s power. It also has helped deepen our spirituality around stewardship, and is moving us toward a healthier and more robust culture of giving, which is grounded in an experience of God’s abundance.
I agreed to write this letter to help introduce the Steier Group to Episcopal churches because I care deeply about the future of our tradition, and I believe the Steier Group can be an important partner in helping us to be faithful stewards of all that we have been entrusted with as Episcopalians, and strengthening our life together and our witness to the good news of Jesus Christ in the world.”
The Rt. Rev. Craig Loya
Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, former Dean of Trinity Cathedral – Omaha, Nebraska
