Facilities   

The church is not a building...It’s a movement. Although physical space is not a pre-requisite for carrying out the Great Commission, it can be a powerful ministry tool in advancing the movement of Jesus Christ. Learn how Building God’s Way is helping churches all across the U.S. to rethink the way they utilize their facilities and plan for future growth.


Changing our Perspective: Digging Wells vs. Building Temples. What story does your building tell about the kind of church God has called you to be? In order for ministries to thrive in the 21st century, we must begin the work of changing the community’s perception of the local church. We must communicate clearly with our buildings and our outreach that we are a part of the community and not isolated from it - that our purpose is to serve, not to condemn. Church architect Don Mahoney will share how your facility can become a greater ministry tool in the community by moving from a consumer-centered to a community-centered focus.


Community-Centered Design Strategies. Learn about the latest design strategies for worship, social gathering areas and children's ministry spaces that will help you create a more meaningful experience for visitors and bring both regular attendees and unchurched people into your building 7 days a week. Learn about a unique and collaborative 3-day charrette design process, the first step toward establishing your facility vision for the future.


There's a Better Way. The stories of church building programs gone awry are plentiful. How do we best exercise good stewardship of both our finances and our property, while at the same time creating space that is relevant, aesthetically pleasing, flexible and truly built for the ages?

     An in-depth look at how to move through the process of building!     

"Great information and exactly what our Church needed as we navigate through the complicated process of expanding our Ministry Center. A no nonsense approach towards becoming an embedded church in our community along with an in-depth look at how to move through the process of building, with an emphasis on integrity and accountability at every phase.”

mission & vision

Becoming an "Embedded Church" in your Community. Community doesn't just happen by accident. We must break ground and cultivate a culture that invites people in. We must come to a place where we truly believe there is no "us and them", there is just "us". Matt Roberts, Senior Pastor of The Genesis Project Church and CEO of The Genesis Fund National Church Planting Network, will share some keys from his book, The God of New Beginnings, that can help you create a culture that allows people to belong before they believe.


Shepherding your Congregation though Change. No matter where your church is in its story, one of the hardest things you will ever do as a leader is to shepherd your congregation through change. Change can be scary. It challenges our comfort zones, stretches our faith and can be a divisive force if not led through with deliberate discernment and care. We live in a world that is changing faster than ever. 100 years ago, very little changed in one's lifetime. Today, the culture and economy of our world seems to experience radical upheaval every few years. Learn how to embrace this catalytic culture head on through practical and intentional strategy that takes stock of where we've been and looks through eyes of faith into the future.
