In 2006, Hope Presbyterian Church moved into a beautiful new church in Omaha, Nebraska. This church finally provided the faith family with a proper home. But, as with any home, that home came with a cost. For the Hope community, that was nearly $2 million in debt on a 20-year mortgage. The community diligently paid off more than $1 million of the debt, but these payments limited the church’s ministries. Church leadership partnered with the Steier Group for Our Hope, Our Future, a debt reduction capital campaign. By raising funds to take care of a big portion of the debt, Hope Presbyterian could save on interest payments and more quickly retire the debt. The small community partnered with the Steier Group for a second campaign as well – raising more than $600,000 in total. In 2022, Hope Presbyterian enlisted the professional services of the Steier Group once again to create and execute A Blessed Past…a Hopeful Future capital campaign which addresses debt, funds a new sound system and builds the maintenance fund.
“The test of satisfaction is often seen in repeat business. I can say confidently that we will be repeat customers of the Steier Group and that our team highly recommends them to any church in need of raising capital for their ministries.”Rev. Dave Matsumura, Pastor, Hope Presbyterian Church
A Customized Approach
Our firm is founded on the belief that the best capital campaign is one that is customized and executed by one team, under one roof. When you hire Fellowship Development, you eliminate the need to contract with additional vendors for services like copywriting, graphic design, grant writing, video production, website development or wealth screening. We reject the one-size-fits-all approach to fundraising and embrace every opportunity to design a capital campaign plan that will maximize our client’s fundraising potential.
