Preparing for a Season Of Growth | 3 Things to Consider Before Your Church Building Project
Preparing for a season of growth
For many of our clients, this time of year is a season of growth. With summer vacation over and children back in school, we find ourselves returning to our routine and getting back in church. Today, we share with you some advice and insight to prepare you for the future of your facility as you enter this season of growth. Here are a few things to consider before a church building project…
Expansion or Multi-site
As your ministry grows, it’s important to determine next steps. Do you wish to expand your facility to accommodate this growth or go to multi-site? Which approach is most in line with your unique ministry goals? There is no right or wrong answer. Consider these things early on and be prepared for next steps to keep your ministry thriving.
Bigger is not always better
Guests and members alike desire a worship experience that welcomes and connects them to greater purpose. The quality, functionality, and impact your worship facility has on your guests is much more important than the size or capacity. Focus on the key aspects of your facility and your ministry to ensure you are growing strong not just big.
Does your facility support your ministry?
We have a saying around here to “always start with the dream”. What would your ideal facility look and feel like? How would it support and reflect the heart and core of your ministry? While budget and timeline are very real factors in a building project, it’s important to capture as much of your dream as possible within these parameters. No matter what size, style, location, or denomination – your facility should reflect who you are and represent that to all who enter.
So, what next? It’s never too early to start considering your goals and steps for the future. Careful consideration and preparation can help set a solid foundation for growth. When you feel that it’s time to renovate or build, talk to someone you trust who has been there: a friend, a fellow pastor, a builder or architect. Remember, there is no one size fits all. Your next steps, your projects, and your future should all reflect your ministry.
