Mt. Pleasant, SC
THE IMPACT:

“Going through the campaign study and then the capital campaign increased everyone’s faith because it showed what we could do when we gathered together.”

St. Andrew’s Anglican Church

As the number of worshipers each Sunday grew beyond 2,000 congregants, St. Andrew’s Anglican Church launched the Imagine 2040 campaign to build a new three-story educational building. Then, tragedy struck.

St. Andrew’s ministry building caught fire and couldn’t be saved. The Imagine 2040 campaign became a campaign to build two buildings.

St. Andrew's New Ministry Center

Because the church’s entire congregation had been engaged during the campaign study—through one-on-one interviews, small groups, and a survey of over 3,000 members, they embraced the need for both buildings and were ready to fund them.

The Result

With the help of the Winkler Group, St. Andrew’s raised $6.5 million—$2 million above their original goal. And they are raising even more money today. More than two years after the campaign’s official end, St. Andrew’s has received three seven-figure gifts. Their partnership with the Winkler Group fundamentally transformed their approach to stewardship and their congregation’s commitment to financially supporting the church.
