Thank you for visiting the website of John L. Hessel & Associates. This site is designed to explain the concept of capital stewardship and fundraising services for churches.
Fundraising is different for churches than for other kinds of institutions. Donors are motivated by gratitude for life’s blessings, obedience to God, and investment in God’s Kingdom. Stewardship is an essential concept to Church support. Likewise, capital fund raising (raising money for building projects) is different for churches than other types of church stewardship emphases. As a result, church leaders that may lead annual stewardship budget emphases are ill-equipped for leading a successful capital campaign.
