(PRWEB) April 21, 2013
Building God’s Way, a nationwide church architect and builder network that provides a broad range of services to Christian ministries, will host a free one-day seminar luncheon at the The Lutheran Church of St. Andrew in Silver Spring, MD on Thursday, May 2. The Lutheran Church of St. Andrew is an award-winning facility that was designed and constructed by Building God's Way and local builder partner, Hammen Contracting, in 2008. Church leaders throughout Maryland, Washington, DC and Delaware are expected to attend to learn new strategies and exchange ideas.
The seminar speaker panel will include ministry leaders and experts in the areas of facility design and construction, real estate development, member growth, funding, and worship technology. The seminar will focus on innovative solutions to address the huge economic, demographic and cultural change facing ministries today. Speakers will address some of the most important issues facing ministries today, including the expected economic impact caused by the retirement of the baby boomer generation, the rise of the Millennial generation and the increasing gender gap and racial segregation issues that exist in churches today.
The expert speakers will share strategies to address this change in the areas of membership growth, facilities and funding. Seminar topics will include:
- Leveraging facilities for financial sustainability, including creative lease agreements, developer partnerships and private equity investment
- Positioning Your Church for growth in a new world - reaching millennials and men; creating more racial and ethnic diversity
- Designing and building facilities to meet the needs of a new generation - strategies for incorporating effective third places, worship technology and children’s spaces
