Based on feedback from our church clients, we know three qualities that are absolutely essential to a quality live stream.
Creating an irresistible, welcoming environment for young families & their children is important for any church. For a church that meets in a rented facility, what else should be considered?
Church growth isn’t about the numbers. The driving force behind why you want to expand your church has deep spiritual roots that aren’t quantifiable. But, numbers play a key role in expanding the church — and are a great tool for enabling church growth.
How the construction of a Family Life Center drove cost savings — without sacrificing aesthetics
Choosing equipment for a portable church is significantly different than choosing equipment for a permanent church building. Churches that don’t acknowledge this will likely make things much harder for volunteers and experience more breakage, require far more storage, and end up spending more money in the long run.
For an 18,000-square-foot worship center for the new Oklahoma Assembly of God State Youth Camp in Sparks, OK, a metal building system made the most sense. Here’s why.
As your church finds itself in need of more ministry space, a new building might seem like a logical solution. But, in the interest of stewardship, it pays to consider whether or not an existing space can be reimagined instead.

You’re going to begin life in a rented, secular space like a school, theater or community center. So, is your glass half full or half empty?

When it comes to buying a church bus, the first question is always: Buy or lease?
Obviously, a church needs to assess its needs and weigh the costs of buying or leasing a bus and what works best for its congregation. But I will say this: Buying a bus outright has its drawbacks, because a large amount of money is taken out of operating expenses.

Here are 10 reasons why a lease might work best for your church.
Perhaps you’ve heard the often-told adage that 80 percent of all new church plants fail. Not true. While there’s no comprehensive research on the total number of new churches started annually, the most recent research on literally thousands of new church starts show that 99 percent of all new churches survive the first year, and 68 percent survive to year four. Moreover, of the churches that survive, more than 70 percent are self-sufficient financially by the fifth year.
