What does it look like to design beautiful spaces that evoke a sense of transcendence and connection to the divine? 

Throughout history, the church building has stood out as a beautiful, sacred place in our communities. Yet today, the look and feel of Christian churches has taken a turn in many cases to the ordinary and mundane. Considered the “house of God,” church buildings should reflect the heart of Christ and speak to the purpose of every believer.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Barna Group to help leaders reimagine ministry through the lens of meaningful design. The result is a series called Making Space: Why Church Design Matters in Ministry, which includes three volumes—the first of which, Making Space for Inspiration—is now available!

This free chapter, "What's in a Space?" includes:

  • The Design Corner: A Place for Peace & Transcendence
  • Case Study: Ministering Through Nature
  • Roundtable Discussion: The Church as More Than a Building
