EP 005:
Partnering With Your Community for Sustainable Impact
John Cissel
Tuesday, March 01, 2016

Before there’s a church building, there needs to be a sound strategy on what we build, where we build, and ultimately why we’re building in the first place. As a passionate advocate for sustainable impact, John Cissel has walked hundreds of business and ministry leaders through that exact conversation.

Episode Highlights:

  • Hear how technology, culture and increased regulations have changed the world of real estate.
  • The new paradigm of church facilities, the three realities of change and why churches often flee from complexity.
  • Real world examples of creating a sustainable model by utilizing your real estate to create alternative revenues within an urban environment.
  • Discover the new model of church facilities as millennials have been handed the reign of leadership for the spaces that they will utilize and design and what it means to be a “well digger” vs. a “temple builder.”
