What People Say About Us

"John Hewett had a special place in the history and heart of Kirkwood Baptist Church due to his extraordinary ministry here in the '80s. His recent work on our campaign expanded his place in our history and confirmed his place in KBC’s heart. His skills in communication, coordination and motivation are unmatched. The wealth of expertise seems at odds with his youthful energy, but John is blessed to be at once wise and dynamic. We surpassed our mid-level goal, but had we not raised a cent, the experience of the campaign would have been enriching for our mission and ministry."

— Rev. Scott Stearman, senior minister, Kirkwood Baptist Church, St. Louis, Mo.

 "I have worked with John Hewett and with Hewett Consulting in one way or another for over 15 years.

John Hewett is one of the most gifted church and institutional fundraisers in our nation. He has worked with me in two large church campaigns with great effectiveness. He brought extraordinary skills, and he was adaptive to the cultural differences between the two churches. I have recommended him often and will continue to do so."

— Rev. H. Stephen Shoemaker, Sr. Minister, Myers Park Baptist Church, Charlotte, N.C.

"The prospect of a major capital campaign was highly stressful and our needs seemed way beyond reach. Thanks to the guidance we received from JH we not only exceeded our top financial goals, we strengthened relationships within the congregation, raised up new leaders and had fun!"

— The Rev. Heidi Neumark, Pastor, Trinity Lutheran Church of Manhattan, New York, N.Y.

"Hewett Consulting delivered above and beyond expectations in every area of assistance. John has an exceptional ability to understand the complicated dynamics of a situation, articulate clearly both verbally and in writing and lay out a targeted plan of action. John can flex easily among diverse constituent groups and feels a personal responsibility for his clients' success." 

— Laura Thomas, Director of Development, Union Academy Foundation, Monroe, N.C.
