At Aspen Group, our heartbeat around the projects we do with churches centers on so much more than seeing a building going up. We love to see how the Lord is working within the church, in local communities, and through teams. Our adaptive reuse project with Faith Assembly in Walterboro, South Carolina, was a recent opportunity to see God working through three different congregations that joined to form a new faith community. The church’s purchase of an abandoned Food Lion grocery is a beautiful example of what can happen when teams collaborate to breathe new life into a community.
Your church needs to expand. Now what? Do you start excavating dirt on a brand new property, or do you lease an empty building for a while? Another option—adaptive reuse—may be more affordable and efficient than building new or renting. But what is adaptive reuse, and under what conditions is it the right solution?
