Capital Campaign Tools

Guiding a church through a building project is one of the biggest leadership challenges a pastor will ever face. But it is worth it because if you lead the project well, it can unite the congregation in your vision and give you a wonderful tool that will enable your church to reach more people for Jesus. And it is always about reaching more people for Jesus!
