Annual budget: $375,000 Campaign Goal: $761,125 Amount raised: 3-year Commitments: $840,000 We at Rock Harbor Church used the Abundant Giving Virtual campaign and were very excited to receive more than twice our annual giving in three-year commitments! We couldn’t have done this without Abundant Giving’s professional help. Dr. Rod Rogers allowed us to adapt the program to our unique church culture and needs and was always available when we needed him. We were especially pleased with the quality of the communications materials and the help of the graphics design associate Steve Lee–he was great to communicate with, always “on,” flexible and went above and beyond to assist us. I highly recommend this Bible-based capital campaign program. Campaign Director Rock Harbor Church Bakersfield, CA 661-829-6743

One concern we did have was that fundraising for the building fund might “cannibalize” the weekly collection, which funds our operating expenses. Rod shared that, in his experience, the regular donations actually increase during a well-coordinated capital campaign because so many more people feel invested in the organization. Six months later, that is exactly what we have experienced. Lay Leader Mount Hope Baptist Church Sterling, VA 703-478-3389

Our Campaign Produced an Abundance We are very pleased with the campaign. From my perspective as Sr. Pastor, the manual [now online] was most helpful because it laid out a very simple easy-to-follow path that produced results. From our Campaign Director’s perspective, our consultant, Rod Rogers, was the most helpful because he was able to answer questions, bring clarity, and provide just enough accountability to keep things moving in the right direction. It is hard to see anything that could be improved upon; it produced more than what we needed and went very smoothly. Senior Pastor Kona Faith Center Kealakekua, Hawaii 808-323-3788
