Whether you’re considering remodeling, new construction, or an interior refresh, we can equip your community for success.

The essential first steps to a new facility are discovered by asking the right questions with the right people in the room. In a couple of weeks, our team of builders, architects, consultants, and strategic thinkers will be at the Facility Planning for the Next Generation Workshop. We’ll be talking about how to move your vision for your facility forward. 

 Facility Planning for Today...and Tomorrow

Future generations will inherit the properties we develop and the churches we build. They’ll need to decide how to adapt, remodel, and expand the spaces we’re developing today, just like we do with the facilities we’ve inherited.

What would it look like if people could build houses that reflect who they are? What if every family was able to design a custom house that looked and felt exactly like them? The floor plan, color, windows, location, landscaping, and amenities? What if every one of us had the chance to design our family’s space in a way that was an exact representation of our family’s culture?


Casting a Vision for a Facility

Initiating a building project is about determining your needs and planning with the future in mind. Casting a vision requires a panoramic view of your ministry, its current position, and its future potential. 

Generosity Initiatives

Learn how to test your readiness to see if your church is ready for its own fundraising effort. Discover techniques and strategies that will build collaboration and ownership among your people and will increase your chances of success.

Going to the Bank

If financing is your funding path, you can learn the various lending solutions available to churches, what banks look for in underwriting these financial requests, and what pitfalls  can be avoided through the process. 

Worship and Technology

Communicating a timeless message through modern means can be challenging, and convincing a church board to invest in it can be even more so. Learn how your budget should be developed for the technology piece of your building.

Building it Right

Learn the strategies for good contractor relationships, hear examples of local projects and what made them successful, and discover proven methods of achieving the best value in each step of your building project. 

“I’ve Been There”

Hear from a Building Committee Chair who knows firsthand what it takes to include your congregation in the building process, to make tough financial decisions, to collaborate with architects and contractors, and all the other details you haven’t thought of yet.
