Creating Space for Change: Transforming Your Facility with Your Mission in Mind
How can your facility help you do your part in multiplying God’s Kingdom? Your facility is more than just a building—it’s an essential ministry tool. Your facility is the place where people gather, grow deeper in their faith, build lasting relationships, and impact the surrounding community. It is your mission & “Home Base.”
Creating a unique space that reflects your critical mission and inspires your community is essential to meeting your vision. Architect and Station 19 President Nicole Thompson, RA, ALA, has over 20 years of experience working with ministries of every size and background to help them create meaningful spaces. She will walk you through each step of the Church Facility Remodel process from planning, to fundraising, to construction so that you can feel confident about your facility’s decision to create a space for change regardless of your ministry size. She will share valuable insight for how to reflect your identity and vision in the tangible and intangible expressions of your facility. Her goal is to bring valuable stewardship insights to your church leadership so that you can continue moving forward on your mission.
