The months leading up to a generosity initiative can feel exhausting. Given the number of decisions to be made, conversations to have, and plans to implement, it’s natural to reach Commitment Weekend and think, “Whew! We’re finally at the finish line!” I hate to break it to you, but Commitment Weekend is more like the […]

Five Reasons NOT to Launch a Traditional Church Capital Campaign http://rustylewis.net/2017/08/18/not-church-capital-campaign/ http://rustylewis.net/2017/08/18/not-church-capital-campaign/#comments Fri, 18 Aug 2017 19:29:09 +0000 Rusty Lewis http://rustylewis.net/?p=11477
