What Do Churches Need to Consider in Their Facilities?


As the Church Facilities Expo met this week in Dallas, Texas, two of the major talking points of the show were the tools and strategies that can be used to help congregations connect with their communities and how churches should plan their building designs to best serve their members.

We’ll hear first from Meredith Quigley Rooker, the director of OMNIPLAN, to get her thoughts on what design aspects churches need to consider in their facilities.

Some churches may be in the position where they’re looking to build a new facility or renovate an existing one. Mark Holsinger, project designer for OMNIPLAN, explains what churches need to keep in mind as they make plans to carry out these projects.

The inability to gather in large groups due to COVID-19 has forced many churches to explore technology that allowed them to take the worship service out of the church and into your living room. LiveU is one of the companies providing this kind of technology and we were joined by their director of channel sales, George Klippel, to explain how their solutions were used by churches over the past 18 months.
