Developing a plan for a group can have its challenges if you don’t have your act together. It takes a carefully crafted process to guide a church’s building committee successfully.
We have been told by so many of our clients that our process was the most thorough and detailed that they had ever experienced. Our step-by-step process that leads a committee from the beginning of a program guide to a projected budget has helped our clients fully understand the process of renovating or modifying their church facility.
First let me share that it isn’t an easy process. It can be very time consuming, if done improperly. There are many factors that go into developing a master plan for a church and any one of them can create chaos if not approached properly. We feel we have been given an opportunity to be good stewards for our church clients and not lead them down a path that would create hardships or delays in their projects.
Here are a few of the issues that we have helped our clients face:
2. Re-purposing existing spaces
3. Expansion of new facilities
4. Focusing on priorities
5. Committee members’ different desires
6. Providing solutions when the budget doesn’t allow them to fulfill all their wishes.
7. Creating a phasing plan
8. Team involvement
Any one of these can be a challenge to the committee and it helps to have someone steering the committee in a direction that will get them positive results.
IONIC’s goal is to assist the church in recognizing its own VISION and allowing it to rise to the surface. We are not here to push our own agenda but rather carefully take the needs and requirements of the church and help craft a plan that can be successfully implemented.
