“As a result of the efforts of Linden and others, a total of $11.2 million in commitments and gifts was raised, making this one of the most successful capital campaigns in the nation.  To date we have already received three million dollars in cash, stocks and “stuff” with 85% of our members participating."

Excel’s campaign “is a spiritual activity, not a high-pressure, heavy-handed, guilt-producing approach to fund-raising. . . . The results were remarkable as we saw 2.4 times our annual budget committed over a three-year period.”

–Dr. John Hall, Pastor, Field Street Baptist Church

Under Excel’s leadership, our church was able to raise well over $3 million dollars in pledges for our project.  This was four times what our church had committed to give before Excel became involved.  In addition, our church had the largest offering in its almost 75-year history when we received over $500,000 on one Sunday.”

 “When a church builds a major building they hire a proven architect to successfully guide them through the process.  In the same way, a church is wise to hire an experienced and proven consultant to successfully guide them through the funding process.  Without reservation, I recommend Linden Kirby and Excel Ministries to help your church develop the funding plans and infrastructure to fund not only your building project but also your ongoing ministry.”
