A program is a list of current and future needs that help a design professional know how to design your building. This list should agree with your church’s mission statement. You must make a decision early on- “are we going to design a building that will meet the needs of the un-churched or for the people who have gone to church all of their lives?”
Items to consider:
1.) Do not spend all your time making sketches-let the professional do that…
2.) What are our current needs?
3.) What ministries do you want to offer:
a.Dinner theater options?
e. Youth/ Children?
f. Indoor play lands?
g. Homeless, clothing, food ministries?
h. Cafe-food service?
