This is an exciting time for St. Peter’s! Church leadership has spent the past several months discerning the direction in which we think the Lord is calling us, that we might fulfill, even more deeply and faithfully, our vision through a mission campaign.
In order to consider launching a campaign, it is important for leadership to hear what is on the minds and in the hearts of our members. We have hired Richie and Rachel Musser, from Kirby-Smith Associates, to assist in this effort. Kirby-Smith Associates is a Christian fundraising firm founded in 1938 that is experienced in working with and for churches. Over the next few months, Richie and Rachel will be assisting with the feasibility study, which is the first phase of campaign planning. In short, a feasibility study will assess the capacity, capability, and readiness of the congregation to launch a successful campaign.
Please take a moment to introduce yourself when the Mussers join us for worship and look for more information to follow on how to personally speak with them during the feasibility study. We thank our Congregation Council for authorizing and approving the process which brought the Mussers to us, and our Campaign Planning Committee for interviewing consultant candidates and recommending Kirby-Smith Associates to the Council for approval. The Campaign Planning Team members are: Jennifer Schlener-Thomas, Adrian Young, Bob Bowman, Edwin Cortes, Jill Emmert, Bob Hollinger, and Pastors Sarah and Craig.
