And because the gracious hand of my God was upon me, the king granted my requests...And they said, Let us rise up and build. - Nehemiah 2: 8,18
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Pastor David Perez of Iglesia Bethel Church will be the keynote speaker at the upcoming "Rise Up & Build" Seminar, which will be hosted at his church in San Antonio on Tuesday, Sept 24. Pastor Perez will share his experience in casting the vision to his congregation regarding their upcoming building campaign and how church leadership has encouraged members to step out in faith and follow the example set by Nehemiah in the Old Testament.
Iglesia Bethel Church was founded by Pastor Perez's father, the late David R. Perez, an immigrant from Mexico, in 1981. Under the pastoral leadership of his son, the church has grown to more than 2,500 members.
The free seminar is presented by Building God's Way, a nationwide church architect and builder network that provides a broad range of solutions to Christian ministries. The event will feature expert speakers in the areas of church design, construction, remodeling, funding, growth, and the latest research and strategies for reaching millennials. Church leaders will learn how to build or retool facilities that are more culturally relevant and allow for expanded ministry opportunities in their community.
Church architects and builders will share about a unique, Biblical approach to designing and building ministry facilities that can save 20-30% compared to typical construction methods. Attendees will learn how churches and Christian schools across the country are turning their construction sites into mission fields through a program called “The Ministry of Construction.”
Attendees will also hear about innovative master planning strategies to leverage both land and buildings to generate revenue and sustain ministry growth through creative lease agreements, community partnerships and private equity investment.
Pastor trainers will discuss proven strategies for creating the momentum necessary to expand ministry, break through growth barriers and successfully raise capital funds in any economic environment. They will also share a strategy called Hearing from God, a refreshing concept that leverages a total stewardship approach to raising capital.
Building God's Way will be hosting Rise Up & Build seminars in other cities across the country this fall. For more information or to register, call 866-249-8484 or visit the BGW seminar web page.
