And while our process will save you money in a church building program, it’s not about price alone, it’s about value!  Consider the wisdom of this quote… “There is nothing in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and he who considers price only is that man’s lawful prey.” – John Ruskin

Four Divisions – One Goal

Our main goal is to honor God by providing the highest and best value as Church Expansion Specialists; and if facilities are a stumbling block to growth and vision, then let us help you successfully navigate the building process.  In achieving this goal, all of our divisions–consulting, design, finance, & construction–help your church.

Save Time Save EffortSave Money Get a Better Result!

With four divisions, CDS provides a complete range of support to any church needing to build.  Each division is headed by experts in its field to provide your church with the highest level of service from start to finish. 

I. Consulting: Our consultants will help your church determine readiness to build, financial ability, and the space plan that will best meet your needs and budget. We will also assist your church in raising money from within the congregation through a biblical capital campaign.

II. Design: A licensed architect will design your building to meet the needs of the ministry and its budget to assure your new building is the proper balance between vision and financial ability.

III. Financing: The finance team will help organize your financial statements and assist in obtaining a church construction loan at the best possible rates and terms.  We can also assist in church refinancing.

IV. Construction: Our construction management process delivers your project at the lowest real cost in your market, and assures cost savings pass through to the church.
