Apparently, if you want your church's cup to runneth over, all you gotta do is call Paul Gage. His Dallas-based consulting service, The Gage Group, will pass the collection plate till it's got nearly $100 million in it. According to this item from the Agape News, a Web that that bills itself as "reliable news from a Christian source" (a claim I can't make, alas):
"A Texas church has completed the largest capital campaign ever recorded for a local church. Houston's Second Baptist Church raised more than $84 million in two-year pledges to expand its ministry throughout the city and across the United States."
