“Building a Church: A Church Layman’s Guide for Navigating the Construction Process”: a fascinating guide for professionals and project managers who handle a church building process. “Building a Church: A Church Layman’s Guide for Navigating the Construction Process” is the creation of published author, Terry Harpool, a retired military officer who serves as a church project manager for several construction projects in Okaloosa County Florida.
Harpool shares, “At some point in the church, a spark will be set that there is a need for some type of construction in the church. It may be a simple addition to an existing building, it may be a renovation of an existing building, or it may be the construction of an entirely new building. Whatever the case may be, it is critically essential that the first thing the church does is to pray about the Lord’s will in the matter. Rushing ahead of God, without earnest and sincere prayer asking for His will and guidance, can result in delays, cost overruns, and confrontation within the church. So by all means, come together as a church and seek God’s will long before attempting to start any construction project. I’m certain you will discover His will for construction when you earnestly seek it as a congregation.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Terry Harpool’s new book gives tips on choosing the right people to provide the needed inputs during the preparation before construction and the most qualified architect and general contractor for specific tasks in church-building.
The timeline of construction, the budget that has to be allocated wisely, and the quality of the project itself, are straightforwardly explained. The pitfalls that one may encounter during the church construction process is also discussed, as well as how to avoid these.
