Ministries are most effective when they are fully immersed in their community and buildings can play a key role in moving a church toward an embedded identity. Learn how strategic planning and innovative design can help bring the church back to the center of the community through spaces that are more flexible, accessible, relevant and inclusive.
Your community is your mission field. Does your building reflect a ministry outpost or a religious museum? Let's reimagine the true purpose of church facilities and explore how they can be designed to be more effective ministry tools that meet the needs of the community not just on Sundays, but 7 days a week!
Also discover a pathway to creating and maximizing resources in a way that not only provides more funding for ministry and mission but also creates hundreds or even thousands of unique visits to the church’s property, which can be leveraged to build the kingdom in a natural & relational manner. Learn how your ministry can invest more of its resources into its actual mission while creating a true catalyst for ministry growth and Kingdom impact!
