11 Very positive feedback from the parish. We met our realistic goal and stopped the 10-year decline in Capital Giving. We met our Sunday Giving goal. We have a better sense of non-financial involvement in our parish through pledges made to prayer and personal service. We went from less than 10 families we knew who had pledged to include St. Johns in their estate planning to 67. One Spirit, Many Gifts Outcomes

12 Between the campaign co-chair and the affinity group leaders, we developed a broad base of leadership and we were able to take advantage of different campaign ideas that were shared among leaders. We have a solid platform for ongoing renewals of One Spirit, Many Gifts into the future. One Spirit, Many Gifts Outcomes
