Is it time to Relocate?
If your church is in a situation to relocate- here are some items to consider as you select a new site:
- ) Acreage: A good rule of thumb is 10 acres for every 1,000 people (seats in Worship Center). This formula is based on a 4-1 ratio for parking. and does not take into account any strict local landscaping requirements. Considering the increased number of single parents and 2-3 car families, the actual current parking ratio for many churches is 2.5 to 1. You should not run into any trouble using this formula, but make sure you add acreage for additional master plan items such as assisted living facilities, missionary housing,Christian school, and other ministry facilities.You can not have too much land for future growth.
