"I can be more definite about what I'm doing with each and every donor and know how to deepen relationship with donors to receive more engagement with our ministry."
Mark Rader, Summit Ministries

UTS learned how to marry the need for the organization with the heart of the donor; two things that have conflicted in the past. Knowing when to ask, how to ask, and what to ask for has made all the difference for the ministry.

Callie Picardo, United Theological Seminary

Endorsements for Elevation Growth Partners

If you’re like me, no one handed you a playbook for fund development when they thrust you into the director’s seat. Major Gift Intensive was a good way to sharpen and grow in my area of responsibility.

– Mark | President of a national youth ministry

The Major Gift Intensive assisted me to develop a common language and order for the important ingredients that compose a Major Gifts Program. It is an excellent course taught in a cohort style that allows for independent and group learning.

After 16 years in full-time ministry, which has included working with a number of different consultants, I can honestly say that Tim and Elevation Growth partners have had a larger impact on me personally than any other firm or individual I have worked with.

Chris Camden  | Harvest, Outreach Pastor

I continually need an experienced and trustworthy person examining all aspects of our organization and giving sound advice. I know of no one who fits the bill like Tim Gunsolley of Elevation Growth.

Tim is more than a consultant… he has become a ministry partner, sounding board, and friend. It was a very blessed day when God connected us with Tim Gunsolley and the team at Elevation Growth.

– Johnny Hall | President & CEO, One Voice Mission
