To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to recommend Gordon Venturella to you as a campaign consultant for your next Capital Stewardship Campaign. Gordon recently led our “The Dream Continues” campaign that resulted in pledges exceeding 6.3 million dollars toward the building of a new facility. After only four weeks we have already received $827,144.03 of this commitment.

From the beginning to the end, Gordon provided outstanding leadership, professionalism, and encouragement to our church and the people assembled on the campaign leadership team. I know this is the result of a unique combination of experience and giftedness in this field. Our church feels like we have a personal relationship with Gordon and we would gladly welcome him back into our pulpit as well as into our homes.

I hope you will consider Gordon for your campaign needs. If I can be of any further assistance then feel free to contact me at 317-881-6727.

God bless you,

Chris Philbeck
Senior Pastor
