Design Philosophy

Ministry Driven Architecture by Ministry Driven Architects.

Not just a tagline but our passion. Our goal is to bring your vision into focus and then into reality. We partner with you, learn your ministry needs, and then design to meet those needs within your budget. Every congregation is unique so every design is also unique. 

While churches may be our passion, our expertise is far more diverse. We are just as comfortable with designing schools, large and small retail, or heavy fabrication. Let us help your project become a reality.

Architecture Services

Our Services encompass:

We begin with developing an understanding of the site, the needs of our clients, and their budgets. We create the initial masterplan for each site to ensure we are not compromising future growth with the current construction. The facility design is developed with both functionality and the aesthetic firmly in mind with a keen eye on the budget. We use various imaging processes to ensure our clients understand the design and often these images can be developed into 3d presentation images to assist with funding campaigns. 

Our experience and longevity has given us a network of engineers, general and subcontractors, capital campaign companies, and lending institutions to ensure a seamless beginning to end project.

The architects at Powers Goolsby are professional and committed to excellence. They took the time to develop a relationship with us; this enabled them to get a clear understanding of the growing needs of our church. Their knowledge of how ministry works, and their expertise in design and construction, helped us to fulfill our vision for a facility that would not only meet our needs for today, but would accommodate our future needs. They are the ideal architect and a valued resource for any church considering any building project.
