If you are among the growing number who uneasily wonder if the church spends too much of its time, money, and energy on buildings; if you feel there must be a better way, a way that would free the church to redirect many of its human and financial resources to meeting the needs of people; if you have ever wished someone could show you and your congregation a proven, workable plan for doing that, then this book is for you.

Architect and consultant Ray Bowman estimates that nine of every ten churches that have called him, thinking they needed to build, have a better & less costly alternative. In fact, in many cases, building programs, rather than helping churches grow, actually slow or stop the growth they are intended to accommodate.

To help your church avoid these costly mistakes, this book includes self-tests that help you assess whether you are building for the right reasons, whether you have a better alternative than building, and whether you are finanically ready to build.

Since this book was first published in 1992, it has been changing how North American churches think about, use, and pay for their buildings. The updated and expanded edition includes four new chapters by consultant Eddy Hall filled with practical examples of how churches are applying these principles, plus a new self-test and a new appendix.
