BGW | Iowa church builder

The construction of BGW projects is delivered through a nationwide network of builder partners who have a unique understanding of faith-based projects and a heart for helping ministries be the best possible stewards of God's resources. These builders have a reputation and a track record for constructing top quality buildings at affordable prices. 

Story Construction

The exclusive BGW Builder for the state of Iowa is Story Construction, an Ames-based company that began as a small father-and-sons operation in 1934 and has expanded into an employee-owned company favored by midwest public and private sectors alike.  President Mike Espeset and his team work seamlessly with BGW and each ministry client to build solid structures as well as relationships that inspire faith, loyalty, and mutually beneficial end results.


This partnership combines the church building expertise and excellent reputation of Story Construction in the state of Iowa with the national design experience and broad network of services offered to ministries through the Building God’s Way program.

The Trinity Partnership

Through a unique delivery model we call the Trinity Partnership, BGW Architects and Great West Construction are aligned from the very earliest stages of design and take a team approach to exploring the best ways to reduce costs for the ministry. At the beginning of every project, all three parties agree that God will be at the center of the relationship, an approach that transforms the job site and leads to significant reductions in conflict, scheduling delays, and change orders.
