Through this 10-week course and ministry leader co-hort, you will walk away with tools and processes that take the heavy lifting out of your fundraising efforts. We hope to simplify this work so you can effectively advocate for your ministry and deepen relationships with supporters.
"I have loved my time being coached by Flagship! Emily and Taylor are not only co-laborers in Kingdom work, but I now consider them great friends! They both listened to my desires and goals, and they joined right in where I needed their expertise the most. They are both down to earth, super relatable, and available. They exceeded my expectations for what a consulting relationship could be! I highly recommend you give them an opportunity to take your fundraising efforts to the next level. During our 4-month program we raised an additional $40,000!" -Sara Beth Fentress, Executive Director, 127 Worldwide
