Sustainable Solutions

What would happen to our ministries if we cut out the mortgages reduced the overhead expenses of our facilities by two-thirds or more and used our buildings seven days a week? Church faculties have traditionally been among the least utilized buildings in America, sitting empty throughout most of the week. We believe facilities are vastly under-utilized ministry tools that can help churches have a significantly greater impact for the Kingdom.

BGW/Sustainable Solutions is working with ministries across the country to integrate financially sustainable models that can become a true catalyst for ministry growth and Kingdom impact. These models include event centers, hotels, child care centers, athletic facilities and senior housing. BGW can walk with you to evaluate specific community needs and determine how your ministry could address those needs through turn-key, investor- led business models.

Many ministries today are searching for how to be an integral part of their community, while maintaining a low cost structure. BGW/Sustainable Solutions aims to meet ministries here, helping them determine a for- profit entrepreneurial endeavor that would benefit their community for Christ. BGW has formed strategic partnerships with key industry leaders in child care, hotel and event center management, senior living to take the burden of teaching, operational management and financial burden off the ministry organization itself.

Below you will find our preliminary design package for Resurrection Life Ministries retail development. We are developing 19 acres they own to sustain a three story Best Western Plus Hotel, a large retail box, and three to six retail out lots. The hotel is projected to return to the ministry $300-$500K yearly after all expenses have been paid. The city has committed to a TIF to bring roads on to the property to allow access from Interstate 59.
