The timing was just right as we had just completed our construction project and financing. I shared with Russ Priddy what I was sensing and he came and met with me and my team and we tailored a capital campaign program that was designed for our church culture. To our pleasant surprise, the campaign exceeded our expectations and the participation from the congregation was more than we could have asked.
I am writing to thank you so much for sharing with the Carolina Church family as we celebrated the breaking of Holy ground on which the first phase of the vision that God has given to me will be erected. I am honored that you would take time out of your busy schedule to come and share this momentous and auspicious occasion with us. We are blessed to be associated with persons of your caliber. Thank you for partnering with our ministry to bring this vision to fruition.

“In ministry God brings people across your path at the right time to help you accomplish your work for Him. Such was the case with Ascend Stewardship Solutions. Russ and his team were not only a great source of information and resources but a great help in gaining the financial foundation needed to fulfill the next steps of God’s vision for us. Not only was Russ very professional but I found him to be genuine in his desire to help. I not only have found a resource for our ministry but a genuine partner and friend in ministry. From record offerings to reassuring phone calls Russ Priddy and Ascend Stewardship have been a pleasure to work with. I am already looking forward to our next capital campaign.”

“I would, without reservation, recommend Ascend Stewardship & Consulting to a church that is contemplating building. Russ & Team were knowledgeable and trusted advisors. The campaign itself was bathed in scripture, taking us on a journey of trusting and believing God through the process… As a result of this God-given strategy, we raised over three hundred thousand dollars within the first six months and hit our goal within a year. To God Be the Glory!! … Russ has been with us every step of the way….read full testimonial letter”
