"The day has passed when we can build big church buildings and expect to be the only ones who use them." - Dan Cook, Founder of Building God's Way
Woodbury, MN (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Building God's Way (BGW), a nationwide church architect and builder network that provides a broad range of solutions to Christian ministries, will continue its “Momentum Summit” spring seminar series on May 13th in Woodbury, MN. The free seminar luncheon will take place at New Life Church, a newly-constructed facility that was completed in February. The event will feature presentations by authors, pastors and leading experts in the areas of church health, growth, 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 event will include:
Dan Cook - Dan is a visionary architect, developer, builder and the founder of the Building God's Way (BGW) network of Kingdom Building Services. He has led BGW through the design of more than 600 ministry facilities and has pioneered a number of innovative programs that have revolutionized the way ministry facilities are designed and built. These programs were all founded on Biblical principles of stewardship, relationship and outreach.
Dan is an innovator with a heart for helping ministries adapt to cultural change, reach the next generation and sustain their ministries in a changing economic environment. Dan will share a unique master planning strategy that helps ministries think "out-of-the-box" when it comes to leveraging their land and facilities to generate revenue. This new approach provides ministries with a financially sustainable model for the 21st century.
