In addition to authoring both Preparing to Build and Abundant Giving, I've been a church building consultant  and church capital campaign consultant since the late 90's. I have written numerous articles, and am a past contributing editor to Church & Worship Technology Magazine and other magazines. I am a seminar speaker and volunteer church building consultant for the NC Baptist Convention and occasionally blog time permitting on my Church Design and Construction Blog.

I have been involved with church building projects all over the USA for churches as small as under 100 people and as expensive as $12,000,000. Today, I am a partner in the firm Church Development Services and head up the consulting division.

In the mid-90s I was "volunteered" to serve as the building committee chair person of our church. Knowing I did not really know much about how to build a church, I began an odyssey of learning that continues even to this day. One of the things that I quickly discovered was that there were few available resources and little help to be had, especially if you were not part of a main-line denomination. My mission became one of ministry to the church in this important area to encourage and equip the church to help it win souls for the Kingdom of God.

I know that I am doing that which He has equipped and called me to do: to provide your church with the experience, knowledge, and the best practices learned from talking to hundreds of churches who are contemplating building programs.  - Steve
