To Whom It May Concern:

In January of 2003, First Christian Church of Kimberling City, secured the services of Gordon Venturella for the purpose of assisting us in a Capital Fund Program. At that time, we were already in the process of breaking ground. Our estimated time for completing the new building was within six months at a cost of 1.2 million.

From January through June, Gordon assisted First Christian Church by leading us through a Capital Fund drive that generated $650,600 in three year commitments with a First Fruits Offering of $46,857.

In addition to assisting us with the Capital Fund Campaign, Gordon directed us to for all our necessary promotional material.

All in all, Gordon Venturella saved First Christian Church thousands of dollars in consultant fees and promotional material.

I would gladly recommend Gordon to help with any Capital Fund needs a congregation might have.
