Expansion, for many church leaders, is a once-in-a-lifetime endeavor – and one of the most challenging, both financially and logistically. Building a culture of generosity and choosing professional partners early on can help ensure a smooth fundraising and building process. In this session, Madison-based church builder NCI-Roberts Construction will share fundraising strategies and resources, and preliminary services that general contractors and architects can provide; and Fulton Church in Edgerton, Wisconsin, will share lessons learned from its recent journey of church expansion. NCI-Roberts will explain different bid processes, a typical feasibility study, and the stages of design and construction. Then, Fulton Church will detail its own fundraising efforts and how its addition completed in January 2018 prompted growth in faith and ministry. Attendees will leave with ideas for how to use building funds efficiently, how to engage all members of the congregation throughout the building process, and more.
Presented by: Lisa Sotis, Project Development Manager and Jace Jontz, Senior Project Manager, NCI-Roberts and Pastor Larry MacKenzie, Fulton Church
