Affordable Church Plans Available That Fit Today’s Market


Sanctuary of Friendship Alliance Church Auburn Township, OH


Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) September 20, 2009

Church Development Services (CDS) announced today that an updated version of its catalog of affordable, pre-designed church floor plans is now available either in print or in electronic format. In most cases, the architectural drawings offered by CDS typically cost less than half of what other firms charge, even in today’s market.

Using pre-designed church plans saves churches thousands of dollars in the development of a new building project. Much of the time, a church will decide on a design, but find out later that the church design they selected does not fit their budget. CDS helps church leaders customize the project to the church’s ministry needs and financial budget as part of its ministry. Helping churches select the right plan from the beginning and then working with the church to value engineer the selected plan is essential in order to properly steward the resources God has made available to the church.

CDS offers fifty standard plans in its new church plan catalog. Churches can select a plan or plans that they believe will fit their ministry needs and budget. CDS will review the selection(s) after gaining an understanding of the church’s ministry needs and analyzing the church’s financial information. CDS’s church floor plans have been used in over 400 successfully completed projects

CDS believes that one of the main reason congregational leaders have turned to them is because of the money they can save by selecting a ministry-driven church development company. Especially in today’s economic development market, using traditional architectural or construction management firms to design custom church plans drives the cost up significantly.

“Saving money and eliminating excess costs are lessons most Americans have learned during this recession. Churches in particular understand the value of being a good steward of money. CDS recognizes that,” said Glen Trematore, CDS’s Chief Executive Officer.

“As we see it, America’s economic downturn is good business for churches. During tough times, people seek God’s wisdom. As congregations continue to grow, the idea of expanding its physical asset becomes a natural next step, which is why more and more churches are turning to Church Development Services to help with their church building plans,” he added.

The mission of Church Development Services is to honor God by providing affordable, value added, church building solutions through education and consulting; and by using pre-designed church plans, customized plans, or turn-key solutions to meet the needs of each individual church.

Low Cost Church Building Plans Now Available for Download



Clayton, NC (PRWEB) August 3, 2009

ChurchPlanSource.com announces two new options for churches seeking to save time and money on church design – Full Sample Plan Sets and Communication and Fund Raising Plan Sets. Churches can now quickly obtain low cost, highly detailed building plans with which to obtain accurate construction bids, begin the building department plan review process, and use for visioning and fund raising in a Capital Stewardship Campaign.

Churches typically spend months and ten’s of thousands of dollars with local architects to create concept drawings and develop the plans to a level of completion which allow the church to get an accurate construction bid. Today, a church can select an existing building plan that most closely meet its needs from a selection of nearly 200 online church plans. The plans are delivered via email from the architect of record in one or two days for as little as 5, 1% to 10% what it might otherwise cost.

According to Steve Anderson, principal church building consultant with AMI Church Consulting, “The purpose of these new offerings is not to provide construction documents, but to help the church quickly and inexpensively determine if the project can be afforded, insure there are no issues with the building department, and create excitement and support in the church.” Construction documents for all plans are available for additional cost, but these new plan options allow the church to proceed with their project very quickly, very inexpensively, and with very little financial risk.

All too often churches spend tens of thousands of dollars on building plans, only to find they cannot afford the project when they receive construction bids. Once the church determines it can afford the project based on real bids, and there are no serious issues with the building department, the church has two options it can pursue. If the church needs to raise money for the building program, and is not ready to build immediately, for a small upgrade fee the church can obtain a customized floor plan and photo-realistic color rendering suitable for framing and use in fund raising communication materials.

The alternative option is, at the appropriate time, the church can purchase full construction documents customized to meet their needs and budget. These plans are sealed by a licensed architect and are ready for permitting and construction. Says Anderson, “This unique process permits the church to defer the majority of the design cost until it knows the project falls within its budget, financing is in place, fundraising has begun, and the church is ready to start building.” Additional plan set details and examples may be found on ChurchPlanSource.com.
