Why Horizons?

The distinctive differences that set us apart


In preparing for your capital campaign, Horizons conducts a detailed feasibility study to determine an actual anticipated range of campaign commitments, garner support from key leaders and gain vital insights into the development of campaign and communication plans. Our process includes online and in-person surveys, input from key leaders, and critical analysis of relevant church and demographic data. Our recommendations utilize the wisdom and expertise gleaned from raising more than $4 billion in churches and denominational groups all across the country.


We collaborate with the leaders in your church to create a strategy that best meets your unique needs and culture. The key to this process is the deep understanding your church gains through our pre-campaign study.


Our Ministry Strategists work only a limited number of campaigns a year, allowing for much more on-site time and schedule flexibility. This allows our Ministry Strategists to be present for all recruitment, training and scheduled meetings. Your strategist will personally continue to guide you during the entire contribution period of your church’s campaign.


If, for any reason, your church is not satisfied with our capital campaign services, you will receive a full refund. Also, after the review of the Potential and Possibility Study, your church can elect to cancel or delay the campaign with no further cost to the church.

Partnering with Horizons

What to expect from Horizons as we work alongside you


Before recommending strategies, we identify your unique giving culture through getting to know your ministry context and your current and future challenges and opportunities.


We collaborate with you to create a specific written plan outlining the steps to take after pledges have been received. When implemented, this will significantly impact the amount of actual contributions collected.


From data analysis software, video meetings, and online surveys, Horizons provides you with several tools to better engage with your congregation. In addition, Horizons provides clients access to an online media library filled with resources, samples and templates and the option for digital or hard copy manuals.


Your Ministry Strategist serves as an adviser throughout the entire giving period and beyond and is present for all recruitment, training and scheduled meetings. Your strategist will personally guide you for the entire contribution period for your commitments.


Your Ministry Strategist intentionally works a limited number of campaigns each year to provide you with more time on-site, increased flexibility and the personal attention you deserve.


As individuals seek God’s guidance in their giving, we walk alongside your church laying the spiritual foundation for a successful stewardship strategy, which allows you to fund God’s unique vision and calling for your ministry.


Our Ministry Strategists can provide expertise in all areas of stewardship development. Whatever financial situation you are facing, whether it be annual, capital or planned giving, we can help you grow a culture of generosity to meet your specific and unique needs.


Gifts of all sizes should be celebrated with gratitude and thanksgiving to God. From lead gifts to the “Widow’s Mite,” Horizons can build a comprehensive gift cultivation strategy specifically designed to work in your congregation.
