This one-day seminar, conducted in tandem with a professional Architect, is designed to assist churches that are planning capital projects. This seminar covers two issues related to a capital project, the financial planning and fundraising that is needed and the work on the architect’s side related to establishing the needs assessment, conducting the building design and the establishment of a global budget.
On the financial side, the seminar deals with the fundraising issues needed to support a capital project. These involve the factors that impact the achievement of that potential, campaign readiness, establishing a critical path for the project, discussing the principles that are important for campaign design and various campaign models churches have used.
On the architect’s side, it is important to initially conduct a needs assessment which determines the needs priority. The building issues then cover the issues for property purchase, property size needed, ten design issues that determine building efficiency and cost and the need and various principles in the preparation of the global budget.
The issues discussed on the financial and the architectural side need to be decided for congregational approval and the conducting of a capital fund campaign.
