Everything You Need to Build Your Church
Church Development Services (CDS) was founded nearly 30 years ago to provide architectural services to Christian churches. Today, our consulting, design, and construction services have been used to construct hundreds of churches all across America.
CDS has become much more than a church architectural firm. In addition to being a full-service church architectural firm with a library of nearly 1,000 church building plans, we also provide:
|Pre-design planning||Church loan & financial services|
|Church capital fundraising||Church construction|
And while our process and ministry pricing will save you money in a church building program, its not about price alone, its 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 minister to your church and bring Glory to God; and if facilities are a stumbling block to growth and vision, to help you successfully navigate the building process. In achieving our ministry goal, all of our divisions–consulting, design, finance, & construction–help your church…
Save Time • Save Effort • Save Money • Get a Better Result!
With four divisions, CDS provides the most 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. For the convenience and benefit of the church, we provide all of these services in-house, not through a referral network of business partners.
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. Architectural: Our church design team will design your building to meet the needs of the ministry and its budget to assure your new building is the proper fit for your ministry 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 also assist in church refinancing and offer a lease-purchase option to qualified churches.
IV. Construction: Our construction management process delivers your project at the lowest cost, and assures cost savings pass through to the church.
Synergy That Benefits Your Church
With CDS as your partner, no matter what the engagement, you get the combined wisdom of the entire organization. We bring the full power of our multi-discipline expertise to every engagement.
One Relationship – Many Benefits
Your church will enjoy the ease of developing one relationship and benefits from the improved project management and cost savings this provides. Instead of trying to develop your project in pieces with various vendors, you can have one partner that will be with you every step of the way from planning to dedication ceremony.
It’s better than Design-Build! If you are contemplating a church design-build program, we would urge you to consider a turnkey Plan-Design-Finance-Build program from Church Development Services.
