Our congregation recently had a great experience with Pr. Don Haven and Abundant Congregations, LLC. Pr. Don was contracted to conduct a Mission Assessment Program at the beginning of this year to assess the readiness of the congregation to pursue a future capital campaign. He was very thorough in explaining the process to me and our congregational leadership. He met with our council at the beginning to upload them on his process and teach them about his philosophy of abundant generosity.
A focus team was created to aid Pr. Don in identifying the people necessary with whom to speak. He then conducted one-on-one interviews, focus groups, and a congregational survey to solicit feedback from the congregation over a two-month period. Over 100 people were engaged, and many were appreciative of the chance to offer their feedback and have a role in the process.
At the end, Pr. Don produced a very thorough report on his findings and next steps for us to take to get closer to conducting a successful campaign. I am happy to recommend Pr. Don and his Abundant Congregations group to lead your congregation in its next steps toward a successful vision.
