    Matt, I work for Visioneering Studios ( and we provide master planning, architectural design, project management, environmental design, and other related services to churches nationwide. We’ve been blessed to work with some amazing churches around the country including Saddleback Church (Lake Forest, CA), Elevation Church (Charlotte, NC), Austin Stone Community Church (Austin, TX), Mariners Church (Irvine, CA), Southeast Christian Church (Louisville, KY), and more than 100 others over the last decade and we’re currently working with National Community Church in Washington, DC among many others. We also work with parachurch groups like schools, universities, etc., and continue to do select secular projects to keep sharp regarding the latest in cutting edge design.

    If you go to the front page of my blog, you can check out pictures of some of our projects by clicking on my Flickr site.

    We specialize in utilizing each church’s unique DNA and ministries to design cost-effective, culturally relevant projects. We are working with churches who are redefining “church” from a half-day a week single use structure that sits empty the rest of the week, to vibrant, multi-use Christ-centered communities that are often active seven days a week. I’d be glad to discuss this in deeper detail if you want to contact me with any further questions. Thanks for your visit!

    I find it interesting that you are blogging about many diverse things. As an architect and as a believer I was drawn to your site. My blog is about architecture, but I don’t hide my faith in Christ.

    Great to see what you are doing.

      Thanks for your note. What greater creative inspiration could an architect have than the creator of the universe and the beauty of His creation. I write about what I find interesting, maybe too diverse at times, but I enjoy it and wish I had time to write more.

    Just watched the trump video about the rule of committee. I am on the church building committee and I would like to show this video to the other members. How would I go about copying or downloading it?

    Thank you for your time and God Bless.

      The video on that post I did about Building Committees ( just was an embedded link to a video on YouTube ( If you do a Google search there are some sites that can capture videos from sites like YouTube so you can save them if you are trying to show this to a group of people where you won’t have web access. Good luck with your project.
