Trinity is currently exploring the possibility of a capital camapign.  Despite what the name may imply capital campaigns are used today to fund all sorts of projects, not just “capital” investments like buildings and grounds.  We started the Inform phase of exploration in Februrary 2019 and expect to complete the Invite phase towards the end of the summer.  Should all of that be successful, we will enter the third phase of the campaign in the Fall of 2019.

A successful capital campaign occurs in three phases: Inform, Inquire, and Invite.

Inform

The Information Phase is a process whereby the needs of our Trinity community are identified, people are involved in examining those needs, and the resulting collective vision for our ministry is communicated to all constituencies. In the foundation-laying 

The most important overall question of this phase is to consider: “What is God calling us to do?” 

Information Phase timeline for Trinity Episcopal Church:  January 2019 through April 2019

Inquire

The Inquiry Phase involves a professionally-facilitated feasibility study that seeks the opinions and priorities of our entire church community, in order to assess our level of support for the proposed projects. A feasibility study has three objectives: 

·      Present our proposed Case 

·      Inquire about opinions and support 

·      Report the findings 

·      Decide whether a campaign is indicated 

This phase formally seeks the opinions of every member of our congregation, confidentially, through a combination of personal interviews, direct mail and/or electronic survey responses to our case statement and a questionnaire, and provides crucial information about the potential success of a capital campaign. 

We will organize the feedback we gather during the inquire phase using our Shared Values.

Inquiry Phase timeline for Trinity Episcopal Church:  May 2019 through July 2019

IMPORTANT NOTE: Trinity will not continue to the final phase of a campaign without the clearly expressed support and desire of the congregation, as indicated in Information Phase work and Inquiry Phase results.

Invite

With the crucial information obtained from a thorough Inquiry Study, we have the building blocks for a joyful gifting phase when we will Invite Trinity community members to participate through gifts of time, talent, and treasure to help grow an even stronger spiritual community.

Dream Catching with Our Community

An important aspect of Trinity’s Capital Campaign Study is to make sure our community also takes part in dreaming about Trinity’s future. We sat down with Tony Milburn, a member of the Capital Campaign Study Steering Committee, to talk more about how we can ensure community engagement in the Dream Catching process.

Dream Catching Process

 

As part of the Informational Phase of our potential capital campaign at Trinity, we are beginning our journey with a “Dreamcatcher Process”.  This process allows for people to simply “dream” about the future of Trinity, and importantly, to have their dreams heard.
