By Stephen Anderson Anyone that would look at our reference list would see that we do a lot of church capital campaigns for Baptist churches. Their are multiple reasons why we do so many Baptist capital campaigns, but one of the reasons is *not* that we target them specifically. So, lets look at some of the reasons why we do so many Baptist capital campaigns.
First of all, we are located in the middle of the bible belt. While we do church capital campaigns all over the USA, the bible belt is full of Baptist churches, almost any flavor you could ask for. We have Southern Baptist, Independent Baptist, Freewill Baptist, American Baptist, Progressive Baptist, General Baptist, and even Pentecostal Freewill Baptist, and I am sure I missed a few.
It may have something to do with the fact that half of our capital campaign consultants are Baptist. Personally, I attend an Independent Baptist church, and I am also a church building consultant for the NC Southern Baptist Convention. As we have moved around, I have been a member of Conservative Baptist, Southern Baptist and Independent Baptist churches.
It may also have something to do with our biblical approach to capital fundraising. Our services will appeal to any church or denomination that are strong on biblical teaching, basing everything on the Word of God and the application of His truth to the lives of the people in their congregation. Now, you certainly don't have to be Baptist to be biblically based, but no one could deny that most Baptist churches would fall into this category!
All in all, its probably a "perfect storm" of all the above conditions that have come together to make Baptist churches some of our most frequent clients. At the end of the day, however, we work with any Christian church that will clearly preach the Word of God and salvation by faith alone.
