Is a Capital Campaign Right for You?

1:00 PM CST
Why do people give generously? How much can we raise? How much does it cost to run a capital campaign? How long does it take? What do I, as pastor, have to do? Should we manage the capital campaign on our own or hire a professional? These questions answered along with real stories of church capital campaign successes and failures in an interactive live webinar. Learn the basics if you've just started entertaining the idea of a campaign, or bring your questions if you are already deep in the planning process.
