Growing together campaign
The Growing Together campaign was launched in 2015 with three goals: to invest in our people by growing our staff, to halve our mortgage debt to free cash for mission and ministry, and to address two critical property needs by replacing our HVAC system and pipe organ.
For the better part of five years we had been praying, planning and preparing for the next chapter in our common life. We asked God for a vision of our future, and the people of Holy Comforter responded generously to make this vision a reality. 125 households joined to give $816,000 to our Growing Together capital campaign. This sacrificial giving has enabled us to:
- Hire an Associate Rector for two years to serve as the Director of Faith Formation and Evangelism
- Purchase the Hook Organ to replace our aging pipe organ, and replace our failing HVAC system
- Reduce our mortgage by $250,000 in 2017, and prepare to reduce it further in 2018 when all pledges are fulfilled
- Pledge 5% to Cathedral Ridge, our diocesan camp and conference center
The last commandment Jesus spoke was, “Go … make disciples of all nations … teach them all that I have commanded you.” This campaign is about reaching and teaching and changing the lives of people with the good news of Jesus Christ. The resources raised provide the necessary tools to help us better reach, better teach, more effectively change lives.
