Building God's Way (BGW), a nationwide church architect and builder network that provides a broad range of solutions to Christian ministries, will kick off their spring seminar series, called “Momentum Summit”, with 2 events in the South. The first event of 2014 will take place on Tuesday, March 11 at Alive Wesleyan Church in Central, SC and the seminar team will then move on to North River Church of Christ in Marietta, GA on Thursday, March 13. The free seminar and luncheons will feature presentations by authors and leading experts in the areas of church health, facilities and funding.
Churches and other non-profits are facing ever-increasing financial challenges to sustaining their ministries. New economic realities and generational changes in charitable giving are threatening their very existence. The Momentum Summit will introduce new paradigms to transform the way ministry leaders think about how their facilities are used, how they reach the next generation and how they operate in a new economy.
Featured speakers for the seminars in South Carolina and Georgia will include:
