“You’ve got a big responsibility.


God has entrusted His creation and everything in it to us. It’s an awesome responsibility. And it’s an awesome opportunity.

Have you thought about how this stewardship applies at the local church level? Have you thought of all the ways God has given you so much for which you and your congregation are responsible? Think about, for example, your church facilities. You likely have a church building or multiple buildings that represent the generosity of many members in the past and present.

What are you doing to be the best steward possible of these facilities? Let me put it another way. What are you doing to be the best steward possible of God’s facilities? It is indeed an awesome responsibility and an awesome opportunity.

There is one organization on the planet that I trust to guide me and others to be the best possible steward of God’s facilities. That organization is Smart Church Solutions.

Let me give explain clearly how much confidence I have in Smart Church Solutions. Whenever any church leader asks me for help with a church facility, I defer immediately to this company. I mean it. Anytime. Every time. Allow me to share one of many examples.

I received a call from a pastor in the Cincinnati area. He was dealing with aging church facilities, but he also had a dream for the facilities to be used as an incredible community hub for the numerous residents near the church. He wanted to know if there was anyone who could lead and guide his church to make the present facilities more efficient while guiding them to the future.

Of course, I had an immediate response: Smart Church Solutions. Over the course of the next several months, Tim Cool and his team worked with this church. I wish you could see the emails the pastor sent me. I wish you could have been a part of the teleconference calls we had. All I did was recommend one company to one church, and Smart Church Solutions made me the hero!

Please read this words closely. We are not entitled to have the church facilities God has given us. But we have been blessed with them. And now it is our responsibility to be the steward of those facilities to honor God for His gifts to us.

Such is the reason I am so incredibly excited about this book. You have before the perfect “how to” guide for church facility stewardship. You have the information now at your fingertips and in front of your eyes. Read it carefully. Read it thoroughly.

But please do more than read it. Act upon it. You have an incredible gift in the church facility God has given you. You also have an incredible gift in this book to guide you how to be steward of this God-given facility.

I am so thankful for you who serve the local church. You are on the front lines of ministry.

And I am so thankful for a partner in ministry like Smart Church Solution to guide you and work with you.

Read this book. Enjoy this book. And, then, act upon the guidance you receive in this book.”
