Making Space: Why Church Design Matters in Ministry

So much goes into designing church services that are inviting, inspiring and transformative. Here at Aspen, we believe that same intentionality should also be applied to the physical spaces in which we meet and worship. That’s why we’ve partnered with Barna Group on a new series of research reports called Making Space: Why Church Design Matters in Ministry. This series will help you explore how the church building and the land it sits on can be used to solve some of the formative issues pastors are grappling with for their people today.


This series has been divided into three parts:

Vol. 1: Making Space for Inspirationmaking-space-podcast-800x800

Vol. 2: Making Space for Community

Vol. 3: Making Space for Formation

Through this research, we’ve discovered key trends that better reveal what draws people closer to feelings of transcendence and connection to the divine.
