According to Barna statistics, 50% of churches have a set of plans that will never be built. This happens for a variety of reasons, but often it is simply a combination of good intentions and poor execution. This is why we are members of the National Association of Church Design Builders (NACDB.com) and utilize their program of planning and executing projects for churches. Any good program starts with a foundation of understanding between the church, the design team, and the construction team.
To further this understanding, the NACDB has created a preconstruction services agreement that walks the church leaders through planning their project based on their talents, needs, resources, and mission. This process takes roughly 2 months, but on the other side the congregation has a full understanding of where they are and where they’re going. They are given a roadmap of what to do next, and even some 3D renderings to help them understand the vision being cast.
We’d love to help your church too! Contact us for more information.
