Capital Campaigns Consideration

Have you ever wondered about capital campaigns and whether they’ll work for your church? Join the Rev. Doug Schonberg online as he leads you through two webinars: one on the reasons and research needed; the other on how to run a capital campaign.

The Rev. Doug Schonberg served from 1998 to 2020 as minister of Chippewa Presbyterian Church in Niagara—a vibrant, intergenerational congregation located in the village of Chippawa in Niagara Falls, Ontario. During this period, he helped lead the congregation through 3 capital campaigns raising a total of 1.6 million dollars over 14 years. Chippawa celebrated the completion of their mortgage in June of 2022. In these two webinars, Doug will share his first-hand learning and experienced wisdom.
