Consulting Services


Working with the church to objectively determine what the church needs to build and why (or if) building is the right solution, what it can truly afford to build, and how it will pay for a building program.  In short, it will build clarity, consensus, and provide a plan of action.


These steps are critical, and must be done before we or any architect can provide an effective design. Over 80% of churches miss this step. The result is wasted money on architectural plans that they either cannot afford to build, or did not truly meet their needs.

Most church leaders have been trained in church health, church growth, counseling, exposition of the Word, evangelism, pastoral care and any number of other disciplines, but rarely has someone taught them what to do when they were successful at these disciplines and now need to build.


Very few church leaders or building committee volunteers are equipped either by

training or experience to lead the church through the process of planning,

designing and building a church in an optimal manner.


Planning / Feasibility

There is no right way to build the wrong thing.

Understanding Needs and Feasibility
The Critical First Steps in Church Design and Construction

It is most likely your church will never undertake a task that is more demanding or complicated in terms of cost, risk, and effort than it will in a church building program.


Following a proper process will ensure your church builds the right solution and makes the best and highest use of its limited money, time, and manpower resources.


Most churches start the process of building improperly due to lack of experience

Get The Answers You Need 

While no two churches have all the same answers to the question, there are general questions almost every church needs answered in an impartial and objective manner

  • Do we need to build, and why is building the right thing to do?

  • Why is the selected church floor plan the right plan for this church?

  • What do we need to build, and how was this determined from our needs?

  • What can we afford to build, and how will we pay for the building program?

  • When is the right time to build with consideration to need and financial ability?

  • Where do we need to build, and why is that the right decision?

In other words, the church’s needs and feasibility study will answer the question of

“how do we know what we need to build?”

If you have read Insights on Achieving a Positive Church Construction Experience, you already know a few specific benefits to the church from a feasibility study; the bottom line being that churches which did feasibility studies tended to have better outcomes.  When you are talking about projects that are commonly in the $750,000 to $2.5M price range, a better outcome is not only of great importance, it has a very real and substantial dollar value.
