We help churches move forward in faith

You are about to embark on a challenging journey of faith. It will call forth your best. And it deserves your best.

At HEWETT CONSULTING LLC we are prepared to be your guides. We've been this way before, many times. We know what to expect. If you choose us as your consultants, you'll trust our experience and expertise to lead you to a positive outcome. In order for you to trust us, you have to know what we believe and what we stand for, and how we do our work,

Our mission, simply stated, is to equip and empower Christian organizations to:

  • raise the money they need,
  • from the people they serve,
  • for ministries that matter,
  • avoiding debt wherever possible.

Our method is to encourage donors and other supporters to experience the joy of giving through the cultivation of sacrificial gifts for compelling causes.

Our core values are:

  • Grace, not Guilt
  • Opportunity, not Obligation
  • Freedom, not Compulsion
  • Joy, not Dread
  • Persuasion, not Pressure

"The prospect of a major capital campaign was highly stressful and our needs seemed way beyond reach. Thanks to the guidance we received from John Hewett 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

Answer to a Prayer

“I cannot sing high or loud enough praise for John Hewett and Hewett Consulting. Our congregation had not raised capital funds in over 40 years and they were frightened. John took our hand and flawlessly, effectively and faithfully led us through an enormously successful campaign.
"He has a finely tuned system for inviting members to envision God’s future for the church, teaching the discipline of stewardship and then raising the funds necessary for the congregation to live into that call. His system, however, is wonderfully flexible allowing each congregation to teach, dream and conduct the campaign in a manner true to the character of that particular community. More important than the money raised, fruits of the campaign include:

  • Increased involvement in the ministry and leadership as John helped us engage over half the congregation in the campaign’s leadership
  • A vibrant prayer ministry as, through the campaign, our leaders began a daily conference call prayer that involved a third of the congregation in communal daily prayer. This ministry continues a year later.
  • Increased giving in our annual pledges for operating budget
  • Courageous faith as having surpassed our goal through prayer and service, our congregation is excited about taking on new endeavors in a variety of ministry areas.

Overall, Hewett Consulting was an answer to prayer and the fruit of John‘s labor and leadership continues to be harvested and enjoyed in our community.”
