church facility's conditio compared to annual physical

Table of Contents


Do you know the condition of your church facility? When was the last time you benchmarked operational costs compared to other similar facilities? Or, have you assessed best practices and the following steps to maintain your facility in the future?

Assessing your facility can be compared to an annual doctor appointment for your physical health. Both are critical benchmarking assessments that include comparisons from the previous years and suggestions on how to better your health moving forward. Additionally, they are essential to maintaining good health and longevity. 

Just like your physical health, understanding your facility’s health is critical if you plan to use your building for years to come. Therefore, to understand the condition of your facility a bit further, here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Are you spending too much on utilities?
  • Are you investing enough to keep up with the natural rate of deterioration?
  • Do you have enough staff to address your facility’s needs? 

If you’re unable to address these questions definitively, you may need to take your assessment a step further.
