Who We Are

Our Team

We hire our campaign managers – and every expert on our team – for their knowledge, expertise, and dedication to inspiring stewardship and building the kingdom. Our people view fundraising through the lens of faith and ministry. You can trust that your full-time campaign manager is 100% focused on only your campaign and will serve your community onsite three days per week. More than consultants, our campaign managers are project managers who work alongside your staff and are supported by the skills and expertise of Fellowship Development leadership and client services teams.
