We believe that everything from mission and vision to facilities and finances are all part of the same strategic conversion.
In addition to becoming an industry-leader in faith-based architecture with nearly 900 designs for churches and Christian schools nationally since 1998, BGW has continued to expand its network of Kingdom building partners throughout the years to meet a wide range of ministry needs. From leading church construction firms and non-profit building supply manufacturers to funding experts and pastor coaches, these strategic partners come together to provide ministries with a one-stop, turn-key solution. Most importantly, they are all committed to BGW’s core principles of stewardship and share the same heart and passion for supporting the local church.
We believe that ministry buildings are much more than just a physical space for congregations to gather.
We believe that these facilities should be dynamic ministry tools that can help ministries reshape their communities and change the world. The BGW concept was born out of a calling to help ministries address not only the funding challenges they face in facility expansion and remodel, but also some of the fundamental flaws that are inherent to the construction process, in which poor stewardship and conflict are far too common. We believe there is a better way; one focused on delivering the highest level of stewardship, God-honoring relationships and intentional ministry focus.
We believe we have a greater purpose.
From the beginning, BGW has been deeply committed to showing ministries how to impact workers on every job site with the love of Christ, a firm commitment that has become the heart of BGW and has impacted thousands through a program called The Ministry of Construction.
BGW and its strategic business partners have also joined together with The Genesis Fund for the purpose of funding and equipping a church planting and revitalization movement. This non-profit organization is a ministry of The Genesis Project, a church based in Ogden, Utah that has grown to a multi-site movement in 6 communities across the nation reaching thousands every week. Genesis Project Pastors Matt Roberts and Rob Cowles co-authored the book, The God of New Beginnings, which shares some dramatic stories of how they are breaking through the darkness in people’s lives and creating a culture that allows people to belong before they believe. Reaching drug addicts, convicts, strippers and gang members, they are seeing God do amazing things with seemingly hopeless lives. Pastor Matt Roberts and his team at the Genesis Project also serve as Church Strategy Consultants for BGW, providing pastors with a personal liaison to all the tools, resources and strategic business partners available through the BGW Network.
BGW is now an employee-owned company that has designed nearly 900 facilities nationally for churches, Christian schools and Christian colleges and has served hundreds of others though its broad network of Kingdom building services and consultants. Headquartered in Ogden, Utah, the company is staffed with a team of highly trained architects, engineers, designers, drafters, project managers, as well as personnel in the areas of business development, accounting, and administration.
