Planning a Church Building Project

Incredible growth can come when a congregation and its leadership break ground on a new building. But those same exciting times can also be times of great stress. Construction and its financing are complicated, and many well-seasoned church leaders find themselves in over their heads when starting to plan a building project. Educating yourself on the entire process prior to beginning construction, or even finding financing, can be instrumental in avoiding problems. From zoning and property sales to church construction and financing you’ll be informed as you plan your next church building project.
