Podcast Episode #509
Church facilities can cost churches more than they ever imagined. Without continuous assessments and upkeep, facilities can eat up funds that would be best used for ministry. Today, we feature a resource that can help.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
- The majority of churches in need of a facility assessment don’t realize their need for it.
- By lowering your church facility expenses, you can provide more money for ministry.
- When the church facility is everyone’s responsibility, they get neglected because they are no one’s responsibility.
- Outside eyes are often necessary to notice needed facility improvements.
The five reasons we discuss are:
- You will have more funds for ministry.
- It is very affordable.
- It is a needed wake-up call for many churches.
- In many churches, there are facility crises about to happen.
- Facilities are often neglected because they are on one’s responsibility
