We are just a couple of days away from a Ty Pennington style church renovation! In a matter of hours we will begin to put a creative twist and an artistic bent to our second campus and we’ll be nearly finished in 36 hours. We LOVE making church buildings look different, unique, and interesting. We love creating an environment that surprises people when they walk through the door expecting a typical church setting. It ignites us to add a bit of creativity to a blank canvas!
I think that churches have often missed the boat on the importance of esthetics in our culture. Environment clearly matters! Starbucks took a cup of coffee and made it an icon, largely because they partnered that coffee with an environment that encouraged relationships. People wanted to be in their trendy little coffee shops! It’s where they feel welcome, content, and relaxed. Imagine if Starbucks served the same product in a beige, multi-purpose room with outdated furniture. Environment simply matters!
So, as we paint our new church some vibrant color, add some metal, brick, and reclaimed lumber, remember that each piece is placed because we want to create exactly what Starbucks did. The only difference is that our purpose is far greater than a cup of coffee and making a profit. Our purpose is Jesus and our bottom line is eternity.
