(426 pledges, as of August 1, 2016)
The “Hearts Compelled To Share” capital campaign is different from past efforts in many ways. The most significant difference is that our volunteers will be looking forward to visiting with you personally about the vision for our ministry expansion in Fishers. When a volunteer calls you, please be receptive to a visit at your earliest convenience. We’re only asking for about 45 minutes of your time.
So what happens in one of these visits anyway?
A church volunteer will get to know you better, share the vision and plans for CLC’s multisite expansion to Fishers, seek your thoughts and opinions, and ask for your financial support.
What is the purpose of visiting everyone?
Our campaign volunteers have five objectives for every visit. They are: 1) Have a good time and enjoy the moment; 2) Develop and strengthen personal relationships; 3) Gain an understanding of the person’s perceptions about CLC, its ministry, and the capital campaign; 4) Ask each family to consider a pledge to the capital campaign; 5) Ask if they are willing to help volunteer.
So someone is going to ask me to make a campaign pledge?
Of course. We believe in being upfront and honest. No church can survive, much less grow, without adequate financial support. But we’re not there to twist any arms. Although your visitor will ask you to consider a generous gift to the capital campaign in light of the needs presented in the conceptual plan, what you decide to give is completely up to you.
Does the visit have to be in my house?
No. It can be wherever you’re most comfortable. Some have taken place right here at church, at a coffee shop, or during lunch.
No one has called me yet for a visit. What should I do?
Sign up at one of the Welcome Desks, call the office at 317.814.4252, or click here. If a volunteer has already contacted you, please respond promptly.
