Testimonials

Below is some feedback received from churches we have worked with to create Capital Campaigns specific to their needs.

VIEW CHURCHES USING OUR PROGRAM


"We'd been disappointed with the process, results and followup in our last campaign, and knew that we needed to try a different approach. Our leadership was drawn to the on-the-ground church experience that Russ has, coupled with his knowledge of raising capital. Of the four campaigns I've been involved in since coming to Pikes Peak Christian, by far Russ has been the most approachable and helpful in catering a plan and coaching us in our campaign."

Darrin Ronde
Pikes Peak Christian Church, Colorado Springs, CO
Campaign Goal: $1.5 million


"Russ with Church Solutions provided the guidance we needed to do our first capital campaign. We not only reached our highest goal but surpassed it by 11%. The materials they put in our hands were helpful but the greatest help was the personal attention we received through phone calls and the onsite visits. There was too much at stake for us not to use the expertise and experience of Church Solutions."

Wil Deahl
Crosspoint Church, Schertz, TX
Campaign Goal: $750,000


"We used Russ Olmon for our three million dollar campaign and he did an exceptional job in walking us through the process. We saved a lot of money and met our goals. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a seasoned consultant and a proven process. We will use him again."

Senior Pastor Paul Booko
Riverside Church, Three Rivers, MI
Campaign Goal: $3 milliion


"Church Solutions and Russ Olmon have provided us with excellent service and outstanding results in our capital campaign as well as insightful help in their church growth consultations. With Russ’s guidance our church completed a very successful campaign in spite of very tough economic times. We continue to reap generous benefits from his leadership and fully expect to meet our campaign goals! We also look forward to working with Russ again in the future."

Ray Davis
First Baptist Church, Whitehouse, TX
Campaign Goal: $750,000


Church Solutions is awesome! From the time we interviewed them as a potential partner in our church expansion project to Commitment Weekend (and now in the follow-up process which continues) they have been outstanding to work with!

Russ Olmon’s thorough and personalized process of preparation and communication not only served our campaign well it raised the leadership bar for our entire church. Throughout the entire process our questions were answered and Russ and his staff at Church Solutions were accessible & responsive.

The dynamic I most appreciated as the pastor of a local church was Russ’s heart for the local church. He is not only a gifted leader and organizer; he is truly a pastor at heart and a partner in ministry. The focus from our first interview and every step along the way was not simply raising funds – but as Russ likes to say, “It is about raising disciples”. The focus is not simply on reaching a financial goal but on fulfilling the kingdom mission of our church and helping our Christ followers grow. With Russ as our campaign leader and the excellent Church Solutions process we met our goals and are in a stronger position to reach and impact our community for Christ than ever in our history.

Senior Pastor Martin Williams
Four Mile Church, PA.
