For immediate release: August 15, 2019
Building God’s Way (BGW), an organization that provides a network of services to support faith-based organizations, will be hosting seminars in 10 cities this fall. The events will focus on effective strategies for churches to maximize the use of their buildings in order to offset overhead costs and meet community needs 7 days a week. Seminar stops include Modesto, CA; Oceanside, CA; Lincolnshire, IL; Janesville, WI; Atlanta, GA; Charleston, SC; Louisville, KY; Middleburg, OH; Spokane, WA and Richmond, VA.
Experts in church architecture, construction, church leadership and funding will share how ministries can reduce the cost of their next facility expansion or remodel project by up to 30%. BGW Principal Architect Don Mahoney will share some key design principles for churches to consider for their new or existing facility that will help bring people to their campus who may not be looking for Jesus, but who might later realize that Jesus is looking for them. “In order for churches to thrive in the 21st century, we believe they must be willing to put their community first. Strategic master planning and design can help optimize community impact – 7 days a week!”, Mahoney said.
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 churches create a culture that allows people to belong before they believe. “Community doesn’t just happen by accident”, said Roberts. “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”.
Church facilities have traditionally been among the least utilized buildings in America, sitting empty throughout most of the week. Derek Bartlett, Director of Mission-Based Sustainable Solutions, will share how churches can build financially sustainable forms of ministry that allow them to invest more of their resources into their actual mission, while creating a catalyst for ministry growth.
“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.” – Bill Meadows, Farmdale Church of the Nazarene, Louisville, KY
