Church Plant Facility Options

Facility Options:

  • Brainstorm all possible facility options
  • Advantages/Disadvantages of 1 Day Facility
  • Advantages/Disadvantages of 7 Day Facility
  • Most ECC plants start with 1 Day Facilities

Let’s look at real examples from ECC plants:

Worship Spaces

  • Many Church Plants meet in schools
  • Some meet in urban locations
  • Some meet in school auditoriums
  • Worship in a school cafetorium with stage

Gathering Spaces

  • Have adequate gathering space – and lots of snacks!

  • A Place to Connect after the service

  • Who would like the décor of this bathroom?  Men in Edinboro, PA talk to their unchurched friends about it!

  • Put fun events out front to create excitement

  • Put “tents” inside a larger kids space to break it up and create “classrooms”

  • Kid’s ministry space in a movie theatre lobby

Signage

  • Greeting and Signage are important
  • Interior and Exterior Signs send important messages to your guests

Building Considerations

  • Lighting can be difficult in movie theatres
  • Some Cafetoriums are more challenging
  • A simple light tree made out of corrogated plastic with lights behind makes a cool worship effect.

  • Simple HVAC: Rather than have an expensive hvac unit that cools/heats the worship space 24/7, install a commercial unit like this 5 ton and run it before and between the worship services.  It’s noisier than regular unit, but since it’s turned off during services, it doesn’t matter + it saves money.
