					Master Site Plan Presentation
Forward Vision Team
May 19, 2002
In the vote to relocate, the church
charged the Forward Vision Team to:
  Create a ministry plan. (A Mission to
  Fulfill)

  Secure architectural services to develop
  a Master Site Plan for the new location.
  (Lifeway)
The Deacons gave additional
direction, including:
  We will build quality space – “First Baptist
  quality.”
  The space requirements recommended in the
  Rules of Thumb document produced by the
  architecture department of Lifeway Christian
  Resources will be strictly adhered to.
  Lifeway materials about teaching space will
  be consulted and considered authoritative.
The Deacons gave additional
direction, including:
  If money is an issue, we will sacrifice
  quantity for quality – we will build less
  space, but do it right.
  The Master Site Plan will allow for
  future growth.
  We will provide adequate and
  convenient parking and will build
  covered drive through entrances.
The input of the church was
taken into consideration:

  A church-wide survey was administered
  to 156 members by Glenn Akins in
  October 2001.

  There were 30 groups of questions with
  multiple options and space for written
  comments
Questions were asked about
the transition
  Six questions concerned what approaches
  people preferred as we transition to the new
  location.

Three options for preferences were given:
  Enthusiastic
  Sure, if needed
  Absolutely not
Whatever it takes…
Regardless of the option given, overwhelmingly, people
indicated that if it would help, they would do it.

   To the six questions most people
   replied, “Sure, if needed” These ranged
   from 51.5% to 69%

   The combined “Enthusiastic” and “Sure,
   if needed” votes ranged from 75% to
   91.5%
The option for which there was
the most reluctant response

I would be willing to drive or ride the
 church bus between Sunday Morning
 Bible Study and Worship Services.

     Enthusiastic – 10%
     Sure, if needed – 65%
     Absolutely not – 25%
The option with the second most
reluctant response
I want to worship in the permanent
 worship center (old or new location)
 even if I have to commute between
 Sunday Morning Bible Study and
 Worship.
     Enthusiastic – 13.1%
     Sure, if needed – 69.3%
     Absolutely not – 11.8%
The question with the highest
combined approval (91.5%):

I want to worship and attend Sunday
 morning Bible Study at the the same
 location, even if I have to worship in
 temporary worship space.
     Enthusiastic – 27%
     Sure, if needed – 64.5%
     Absolutely not – 8.5%
We heard you
This is “your” plan
Overview of Four Phases
Each new phase is built as new
growth comes

We Can Do This
How we will build
Sources of funds
  Building fund monies in hand
  Other church savings (NOT including reserve
  contingency fund)
  Capital fund drive (Challenge to Build)
  Sell of present properties
   Seven acres by elementary school
   “Rutland” house, Youth House

  Borrowing (rule of thumb: 2X last budget)
Where do we go from here?
What’s next…
Four Steps to Building:
 Master Site Plan
 Capital Fund Campaign
 Construction Documents
 Construction
According to the motion:
  After the completion of the Master Site
  Plan, the church shall begin a Capital
  Funds Campaign to begin raising
  monies to pay for the first phase of the
  proposed project.
  The church shall use the Challenge to
  Build Program from the State Board of
  Missions of the Alabama Baptist State
  Convention.
Challenge to Build:
  An Alabama Baptist capital funds
  program that produces financial
  and spiritual growth
The Basics of Challenge to Build

      Not equal gifts,
      equal sacrifice
Advantages of Challenge to Build

  A meaningful spiritual experience – it’s
  about more than money
  It promotes over and above regular
  budget giving (budget giving often
  increases during CTB)
  Not just a capital fund drive,
  stewardship education
The results we can expect

  The average church will raise one to
  two times last year’s non-designated
  income.
  Three times is not uncommon,
  especially for churches that haven’t built
  in a long time.
  A church will usually receive between
  92% and 115% of the amount
  committed by the members.
