Back in 1982, Jeff Parker started Jeffrey Parker Architects with a lofty vision: to provide consistently great building results and client experiences. And he aimed to do so by combining creative excellence with highly personalized service. Now, with more than 30 years of history, Jeffrey Parker Architects has built a solid reputation of creating stylish, purpose-driven, innovative and cost-effective churches and commercial spaces.

Whether you are a small congregation or a national chain, our team approaches every project as a new opportunity to provide “excellence” and surpass client expectations… in all respects. A unique aspect of our approach is the way we proactively plan for and manage the entire building process for you. Our wealth of experience allows us to develop consensus and conviction within complex committee and business structures. Best of all – we are always keeping your budget in mind.

We are proud to call Grand Rapids, Michigan our home, but we are also licensed to practice architecture in 19 states scattered throughout the country. By doing so, our team is able to promote a cross-fertilization of new ideas and trends.

So no matter where you are located, we are excited to talk to you about starting something together!
