How To Fund A Church Building Project

If your church is about to begin a building project, congratulations! You may be faced with many questions, one of which being, how do we get started? 

The Talents and Shekels of Ministry

In the great Exodus, Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, across the Red Sea, and into the wilderness.  During their encampment at Mount Sinai, God gave Moses the Ten Commandments and specific instructions on how to build a portable tabernacle.

Grassroots Efforts In Church Lending

In the early church, the message of Christ was delivered primarily through face-to-face communication from Christians to unbelievers. Paul the Apostle, who was responsible for the growth and spiritual maturity of the early church, provided wisdom, insight and encouragement through personal visits and letters. Thankfully, many of Paul’s letters were preserved for us in the Bible. Today we call such person-to-person communication “grassroots efforts.”

Work In Progress

Ruth Bell Graham, the late wife of evangelist Billy Graham, spent many hours travelling with her husband on highways and farm-to-market roads in their efforts to spread the gospel. The pot holes, temporary pavement, and unclear road markings in these zones clearly reflected that there was a “work in progress.” These construction zones often reminded Mrs. Graham that as long as she was here on earth, she was also a “work in progress” supervised by the great architect and engineer, Jesus Christ.

The Economics Of Jesus

Habitat for Humanity (known as “Habitat”) is a well known, international, non-profit Christian ministry that provides quality, affordable housing to the less fortunate. Everyone who receives a home from Habitat is expected to make a down payment and monthly payments to help cover costs. On their website, Habitat describes their ministry as one that uses the “theology of a hammer” and the “economics of Jesus”.
