Rodney JamesPresident of Master's Plan Church Design & Construction
Rodney was raised building buildings with his father. God called him to full time ministry where he served as church administrator and later as senior pastor for 20 years. Having led his church through 3 major projects, Rodney understands the full process from discovering need, to vision casting, to designing and building ministry related projects.
Leading for Spiritual Impact During a Building Project
Consider every story in the Bible when God ordered His people to build. The tabernacle, the Temple, the rebuilding of Jerusalem walls: each of these events invited and involved people! Of course, we all expect the completed building to enable the church to reach more people, disciple more effectively, or create space for new ministry opportunities which all result in changed lives. However, if the entire process is managed correctly, the journey from vision to occupancy of any ministry facility project should result in changed lives along the way. We will discuss ways to raise new leaders, raise new stewards, raise expectations for ministry opportunities and most importantly how you can lead your church to have eternal impact on hundreds of lives during the entire journey of dreaming, designing, and constructing your next project!
You’ll learn practical and tangible ways to:
- Increase Prayer
- Increase Stewardship
- Minister to Workers and Contractors
- Involve the Entire Congregation throughout the Build Project Spiritually
