Hear From Our Members
"I like the support that we get from CPA. I like having someone to narrow my options; so that we have confidence that we are making a good choice... For me, CPA is wonderful for saving money and time."
Jane Rutherford, Parish Administrator
"With CPA, we've been able to do both --- make our energy costs more affordable and our budget sustainable. When I started here, our utility bills were more than the Education budget, Outreach budget and my salary combined... We needed a better way."
Rev. Rachel Cornwell, Senior Pastor
“CPA realizes the vision of who we are together. I don’t know what it takes to figure out all the details of our HVAC and facilities… but I know I can trust CPA to have the relationships with the people who do.”
Rev. Ashley Goff, Associate Pastor
“Saving the money, effort, and time that it would take to go through all of this myself... the nitty-gritty of contracts… CPA makes it all a lot easier for me.”
