I can, without hesitation, recommend the Church Development to anyone, any group, that is considering doing a capital campaign.  We raised almost 80% of our goal within the first year. We owe our gratitude and thanksgiving to the God who has blessed us and also to the Church Development and the wonderful work they did with our congregation.
