Buildings That Fund Ministry

Monetize Your Building for Ministry Impact

Your building is one of the best evangelism tools for ministry. What we are learning through a long season of disruption is that it is the role of our buildings that is changing, but not their value. 

What would it look like if…
Your building is funding ministry more than your ministry is funding a building? 

Your building is as relevant as it is reverent? 
Your building was meeting tangible needs of the community and bringing hundreds of people on site during the week who may not come on Sunday morning? 

Ministry Solutions Group is a team of experts who specialize in helping churches unlock their underutilized real estate to create impact for their community. The result is growth in the church and additional streams of income that fund the mission and vision.

Under Dave’s leadership, 2|42 grew from a 40-member launch team meeting in Dave’s living room to over 10,000 people meeting at seven different campuses each weekend.  2|42 was built as a church committed to community outreach and radical generosity and is nationally known for award-winning public community centers comprised of indoor sports and fitness facilities, cafes, playscapes for kids, and a school for the arts.

Dave has led 2|42 through several generosity campaigns, totaling more than 33 million dollars. His business savvy combined with his pastoral leadership allowed him to serve on the board of the Solomon Foundation, the fastest-growing church extension fund in history, with assets totaling over 500 million dollars in seven years.
