Ministry Architects

December 08, 2014

Churches today face a tough reality: They want to build thriving ministries to teenagers as well as children, but very few churches know how.

Most simply resort to handing the entire responsibility to young, inexperienced age-level directors who are then asked to bring “their own visions” for youth or children’s ministry to the church.  This is a hit or miss proposition at best.  If the hired staff director happens to be a superstar, the church is thrilled by all he or she brings to the table (at least until that irreplaceable director leaves in a few short years…or months). If the youth or children’s director is less than stellar, the ministry can easily become mired in a climate of criticism and complaint, as the parents and church staff members become increasingly obsessed with “fixing” the current staff member.

But thriving, sustainable ministries can never be built on a parade of young, enthusiastic leaders trying to piece together a disjointed collection of ideas from popular models, books and seminars. Churches remain frustrated and floundering in their youth or children’s ministries – not because they can’t find “the right staff,” but because they haven’t  determined their vision and established a structure for their ministries.  At Ministry Architects, they believe there is a better way, a better way than one-size-fits-all training events and quick-fix searches for superstar staffers.

It all starts with building intentionally.

So like architects, they don’t tell churches what they want to build. THey start by listening and then show them a blueprint of exactly how they can move from where they are to where they want to be. And then Ministry Architects walks alongside them to make sure that they build the kind of infrastructure they will need to create the ministries they dream of having.

We have made it our mission to help churches establish sustainable, deep-impact ministries, one church at a time.  Over the last ten years, Ministry Architects has begun to emerge as the standard for excellence in youth, children’s and small church ministry consulting, effectively transforming struggling ministries into thriving ones.
