Thank You For The Nice Review

Hooray! Thank You For The Nice Words!

Greetings in the Name of Jesus, Pat, Kent and Ron! Thank You!!! I very much appreciated your time and sharing efforts over the past few days. Job well done! I look forward to our future interactions and reinforcing the partnership between our two organizations. May God continue to lead, guide, and bless our collaborations! In His Service, Dan Reichard, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, World Mission.

I work in Advancement at a Christian Camp that is currently closed because of the pandemic. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this scripture-filled resource. This weekly email is the best resource I’ve seen. Although we are not in a position to partner with your group at this time, I just want you to know what a Kingdom work you are doing here. I realized that many others like me likely open and read this for encouragement and training but never circle back to say thank you. Thank you and please continue! Topher Matson, Director of Strategic Funding, Mount Hermon Association

 

Hi Pat and the whole gang, Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your training last week! Thanks for the meals, materials, great fellowship, and super teaching! All of you were a great blessing and encouragement to me! Thanks for all you are doing for Friends of Israel! I have known and worked with you folks for a long time! I am grateful for your friendship in the work of the Lord. If I can ever be of help or encouragement, let me know! God Bless, Dan Dark Representative for Ministry Advancement Friends of Israel.

 

Dan, this was an excellent webinar (The Care and Feeding of Elephants) and not only because it was short, but because it was POWERFUL. Is it possible to have that video. McLaughlin just hit the ball out of the park. I’d like to share the video with my boss, maybe the entire team; and I want to mark up my Bible with McLaughlin’s notes. Lord bless! Kevin Kurtz, Planned giving Officer, Dallas Seminary Foundation

Ron, Thank you for this sharing (Turning Followers Into Donors). Certainly encourages my heart to continue pressing on in these uncertain times. God bless, Yolanda Martinez, Executive Director/Counselor, Rapha Hope Center

Mr. Haas, Thanks for your kind note. I am teaching Fundraising at Regent University again this year, and I can think of no better place to send my graduate students than your web site to really learn from the professionals. You and the Timothy Group are a huge blessing to me and thousands of other folks! In Christ, Homer Allen, Adjunct Professor for Graduate Studies, Christian Education Department at Regent University. 

Ron, That (Rebuild. Restore. Renew.) struck a cord with me. That is theme verse for Water Street Mission. With Gratitude, Bob Kramer, Advancement, Water Street Mission.

Very encouraging. Thanks Ron. We truly appreciate this sharing (Your Fundraising Desert) and we continue to believe for God’s provision for Rapha Hope Center. God is truly doing a new thing in my heart as the readings bring new perspectives in reshaping how I look at His provision. May God continue to grant you wisdom and new revelation as you share and encourage others for His glory. Blessings, Yolanda Martinez, Rapha Hope Center

These are good! (Fundraising Verses of the Week) Blessings to you. Dan Bjokne, Vice President For Advancement, Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary

Pat, I wanted to drop a note and say thank for allowing me to sit in on the planned giving training last week.

John McLaughlin, Development Officer, Friends University, Wichita, KS

Thank you again Ron for this wonderful sharing of your Christ-centered fundraising vision (The BEST Donor Script). I always look forward to your next message! Roy Melendez, Executive Director for Advancement, Simpson University, Redding, CA

Pat, Loved it. (Making It Right With Donors On Your List,) Loved that it was 15 min. Short and sweet. When’s the next one? My entire Team Texas watched it and we discussed it via Zoom for about 15-20 minutes right afterwards. Gratefully, Chris McQuirk, Sr. Kingdom Advancement Officer, Jesus Film Project

Hi Jody, Just a quick note to say thanks for your personal note and words of encouragement!  I do really appreciate the Fundraising Verse of the Week – such insightful encouragement and challenges, directly from the WORD. The summer is slipping away quickly and while I feel more settled in this position than I did last year at this time, all the sudden changes with COVID still present a unique challenge!  I may just give you a call someday soon to chat through a few questions I’ve been pondering about how best to focus and use my time. Thanks again. Gwen Renno, Development Director, Belleville Mennonite School, Belleville, PA. I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Romans 15:13

Really enjoyed the webinar, Pat! (Making It Right With Donors On Your List) Happy 30th my brother, and God bless as you continue blessing others. David Cash, Durham Rescue Mission

Good morning, Ron! I wanted to thank you for your weekly scripture verse and fundraising encouragement emails you’ve been sending. Always look forward to reading them on Monday’s, and it’s a great way to start the week. Thanks!! I have a quarterly newsletter that I send to my top 30 donors and board members, and I’d like to share your “Raise a Hallelujah!” excerpt in my next issue. Do you mind if I share it with them in the August newsletter? I want them to be encouraged and appreciated from their relationship with the NCCAA and to share the exciting things happening in our association. Trust you and the family are healthy and remaining encouraged during this time. I’m continually reminded and humbled to return my focus to Christ and the Bible. He’s got this! Luke S. Cureton, Director of Advancement, NCCAA, (National Christian College Athletic Association), Greenville, SC

“Thanks. Good word on this week’s fundraising verse, Pivot, Pull Back or Start Over? Isn’t it amazing how the Bible has an answer for EVERY situation? God’s Word is ALL-sufficient. Jack Hoogendyk, Executive Director, Hope Life Center of Wisconsin.

“Thank you Ron! This Fundraising Verse of the Week is timely for me considering that I’m a one-woman development team! Sometimes feel overwhelmed … but doing the best that I can with the Holy Spirit as my guide.” Blessings, Rebecca Cross, Venice Christian School, Venice, FL

“Thanks, Ron. This week’s passage and story, ‘Help, I’m Not Good At Fundraising’ were especially compelling for me. I’ll share with my team. Thanks!” Kevin Engel, Director of Development, Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL.

“Kent, Thank you so much! I really enjoy the videos they have been super helpful and encouraging to me! Enjoy the long weekend.” Blessings, Danielle Vaughns, Donor Officer, Rescue Mission of Salt Lake

“Good morning. I focused on using the ‘shutdown’ as a time to ask for donations for Simpson University.  I did that through FB and email. My one big “take away” from the panel discussion: reach out to people to discover how they are faring and what their needs are. I’m going to do this with phone calls.” Shalom! Salaam! Peace! Glenn E. Schaefer, PhD, Professor of Old Testatment, Emeritus Coordinator, Simpson University for Seniors

“Hi Kent. Thank you so much for your call and your listening ear! I appreciate all the work the Timothy Group has done to help the Naples Christian Academy and countless other non-profits. I look forward to devouring the webinar library and proceeding with hope and hard work on advancing the mission of NCA. Thank you again for your call.” Brandie Dickerson, Advancement Director, Naples Christian Academy 

“Pat, I thought you would want to see this. I am sending this out tomorrow morning to all our employees and board.  he other day a good friend of mine said to me, “Have a Psalm 91 day.” Not able to recall it by memory from my childhood days, I pulled it up on my phone. It was just what my soul needed. I hope that it will encourage you as it did me. I could not help but seeing the last verse of Psalm 90. May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands. As the Scenario Planning Team begins preparing for the new academic year in August, Psalm 91 is my prayer for us.” Jules Glanzer, President, Tabor College, Hillsboro, KS

“Dear Friend Pat and The Timothy Group Team, I just wanted to reach out and share my appreciation. I am so grateful that I am blessed to work for Simpson with a greater purpose. Thank your team for your support and wisdom as we navigate these challenging times. Today’s Zoom call was inspiring. So great to hear many different perspectives and what an awesome group of people.” Pam Schalo, Director, Corporate Giving & Major Gifts, Simpson University, Redding, CA

“To Those in the Timothy Group, Thanks for your note today about how to stay in touch with our partners.  We are a pro-life ministry in downtown Boston which is a block from the epicenter of the coronavirus in New England. This year we added about 25% to our budget for a new staff position as we just received the go-ahead from the City, after 7 years, to add an ultrasound medical room. This cost is for a nurse, required by law, to give our pregnant clients a picture of the baby inside their womb. Things are VERY, VERY tight financially for us, and we need your wisdom!  So, your thoughts could not have come at a better time. Thank You!  We greatly appreciate your prayers and your sage thoughts.” Blessings in Christ, Homer Allen, Director of Community Engagement, Boston Center for Pregnancy Choices

4 Types Of Donor Heart Response – Fundraising Verse of the Week: “This is the best, most biblical explanation for this phenomenon I have heard.  We all know that this happens, but this parable says it so honestly and completely.  I had never thought of applying this parable as a metaphor for the donor base. For a brand new development director, this really helps take the pressure off and keep me focused on the good soil. Thank you.” Lisa Barlow, Director of Development, Westminster Catawba Christian School

“I have enjoyed a strong working relationship with The Timothy Group over the years. The team was a great help as we launched and completed a $9 million capital campaign. I’m grateful for their wisdom, strategic guidance, personal attention, faith ignition, and good humor.”  Jim Stigman, VP for Ministry Advancement, Hope Academy, Minneapolis MN 

“I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for these weekly emails.  Like most people, I am bombarded daily, weekly and sometimes multiple times a week with emails — for everything — not to mention for fundraising.  I can’t read them all and usually hit delete. But YOURS has become a staple to start my week — they are so applicable!  This also helps me start my fundraising week with Jesus FIRST, then the practical.”  Jackie McKool, Development Director, Safe Harbor Rescue Mission

“Pat, in October of ’91 you made a proposal to us at the Tacoma (WA) Rescue Mission as we were considering a capital campaign. During your visit you gave me a pocket-size NIV New Testament and included a personal note in the back. The years and the miles have separated us, but over the past, now nearly 30 years, I have frequently read from that Bible. Seeing your note I am reminded of you and your generosity, and I say a word of prayer for you, your family and your ministry. Yesterday, I again saw the note and I wondered where you might be today. Today I found your website. I am pleased to see God has blessed your life and ministry and that you’re still keeping up the good fight. You, undoubtedly, have been, and are, a blessing and help to many ministries and individuals. I will continue to pray for God’s abundant blessings on you, your family and your team. I wish you well.” Joe Ellis

“Hey, great job today! I mean this, I am a better leader today because of the things that you  brought to the table in our gathering!We have already implemented 2 of the things that were shared! Thank you. Blessings!” Dick Ailts
