The SRD Group Merges with Horizons Stewardship

Two trusted and proven organizations come together to serve a broader base of church, ministry, and nonprofit leaders in more comprehensive ways.


[Dallas, TX]. The SRD Group has merged into Horizons Stewardship, a full-service church and faith-based nonprofit fundraising and generosity consultancy.  The official announcement was made in Dallas, Texas, on Tuesday, November 30, 2021. The move to merge The SRD Group with Horizons Stewardship started earlier in the year to help both organizations to expand the diversity of ministry environments served.

“I have admired and respected Horizons Stewardship for decades for their commitment to excellence and their ability to consistently deliver measurable results,” said Richard Caperton. “I’m confident our clients will have access to a broader base of best practices, analytics, ministry tools, and strategies to help them do more ministry.”

The merger of The SRD Group fits into Horizons Stewardship’s strategic vision to help leaders grow more disciples and fund more ministry. The SRD Group will help Horizons Stewardship expand its reach into new ministry segments and expand the capacity to serve existing leaders in a more comprehensive way.

“Richard and The SRD Group are an important addition to the Horizons Stewardship team. They will help us continue to expand our support and desire to see local churches, and their leaders, thrive in an increasingly complex ministry environment,” said Joe Park, CEO, Horizons Stewardship.
