CHURCH EXPERTISE

Partnering to create purpose-driven churches with personality

A great joy in the life of any church is witnessing the growth of its ministry. Growth unlocks exciting opportunities. It can also present perplexing challenges, such as a need for more space. At Jeffrey Parker Architects, we guide you through the church building process – both architecturally and financially. From simply getting you started all the way through celebrating your building dedication, we make it happen.

Our Design Philosophy

We work closely with you to create attractive, cost-effective buildings that radiate and reinforce church ministries. Combined with church staffing and programs, properly-designed buildings will 1) enhance ministry opportunities for existing congregations, and 2) create visitor-friendly space that helps attract newcomers. Our design philosophy also emphasizes collaboration – with the building committee, lay leaders, church board and even the congregation. This broad-based involvement translates into overwhelming congregational support, ownership and unity.

Our Unique Process

Our design process relies on getting to know you, your congregation and your ministries. We typically help manage the entire building program, with you as an active participant. As “process managers”, we coordinate the efforts of the capital gifts consultant, lending agency, construction manager, building inspector, technology consultant and furnishings vendor. We also help organize and manage the site plan approval process. As a result, our church building projects flow effortlessly, church staffs stay focused on ministry and the process becomes an exciting, spiritual experience.

Our Master Planning

We envision what could be, challenge the status quo and balance short-term needs with a long-term perspective. This mindset drives our entire church master planning process. As a result, our church campus and facility master plans provide clearly-defined, purpose-driven, all-encompassing roadmaps for congregations to follow. They also help ensure that buildings can be inexpensively and seamlessly added onto, and that property is skillfully and efficiently utilized. And by being pieced into multiple phases (based on affordability, needs and attendance), these long-range plans are highly achievable.

Our Buildings

We specialize in churches. Our seasoned approach is especially suited for thriving churches that feel trapped in buildings that are either too small, dysfunctional or out-of-date. By working with various churches of different denominations and geographic areas, we help promote a cross-fertilization of new ideas and relevant trends. In turn, we creatively build new and/or expand existing church campuses to radiate and reinforce the personality of your ministry.

COMMERCIAL EXPERTISE

Our passion is creating great public spaces of all kinds

We thrive on creating spaces that are lively, secure and distinct in character, from restaurants and retail centers to office buildings, schools and churches. And we believe that buildings succeed when: 1) company needs are carefully balanced with costs and; 2) owners and stakeholders are empowered to make well-informed decisions. This mindset, together with our expertise in design and construction, our proactive management of the building process and our extensive track record, has helped build our company and its reputation.

Project Diversity

Our commercial work is intentionally diverse. This allows us to infuse projects with a fresh creativity, as design ideas cross the boundaries between various project types. And as a result, nothing can become repetitive or stale.

Process Management

We help orchestrate the entire building process, by coordinating the efforts of the lending agency, construction manager, building inspector, and furnishings and equipment vendors. We also help organize and manage the entire site plan approval process. As a result, our projects flow together effortlessly and our clients stay more focused on their businesses – which provide them with great benchmark experiences.

Commitment to Excellence

Working together with our clients and select construction managers, we strive to balance each project’s size (which is often determined by business needs), cost and quality (of details and materials). This has helped build our reputation of exceeding client expectations.
