Raising Funds For Ministry

Your ministry members have a deep desire to grow the faith. LCEF's Capital Funding Services (CFS) consultants help inspire generosity because they bring a distinctive set of assumptions and practices to bear upon your ministry's campaign.

The goal is never about dollars raised, but the joy and stewardship that comes from a ministry that knows how God intends for its people to serve.

Our experience indicates that achieving this success requires three careful and comprehensive steps:

  • Allow people to grow spiritually through giving.
  • Invite as many as possible to share your vision and actively take a role in making it a reality.
  • Raise the highest dollar amount possible by ensuring that members stay focused on the goal for the full three-year giving period.
LCEF's Capital Funding Services helped Immanuel Lutheran in Gaylord reach their financial goal. In Sept. 2013, the new school was dedicated and opened its doors to students. What a blessing!

Each campaign is designed for your ministry's unique circumstances and is based on God's Word. Our consultants will design a program that is Christ-centered, Gospel-motivated and theologically sound. We serve the LCMS exclusively because we know you — we are you.

Your consultant is onsite as needed during the first four months of the campaign, seeking 100% involvement of your members. Not only will your CFS consultant continue to guide your ministry throughout the campaign, our support staff at the national LCEF office can answer your questions and provide tools and resources.

Online samples will assist those producing communication and creative pieces. This continuous service helps keep the campaign momentum steady and invites new members to see the vision and become a part of it.
