The EuroTeam Design Group (ETdG) offers building design services to qualifying ministries. These ministries have included churches, private Christian schools, Bible schools, camps, conference centers and administrative centers. Other ministry types would include evangelical services to build the Body of Christ throughout Europe.
As the three images above depict, we emphasize three areas of assistance:
- Strategy – thinking strategically about your needs and the possible options for meeting those needs. We help you think long-term about your needs and aid you in looking at all the alternatives that are available. In addition, we design based on this long-term thinking, developing a “Master Plan” for what will be needed into the future and which can be built in phases, according to the needs at each point in time.
- Design – we design new buildings, renovations and additions to existing buildings, and help you see how best to use the facilities you have. From the preliminary through to the final design, we work with you to come up with the best possible solution to your needs. Our goal is to free up Christian workers to do the ministry they’re called to do so it isn’t hindered by their having to deal with a building project.
- Presentation – at all stages of the design process, we present the design in the necessary format. In addition to plans and other drawings to assist in understanding the design, we also create presentations that can be used in communicating the design to stakeholders and possible financial donors. If necessary, we also produce final drawings for use in obtaining approvals from local authorities (planning permission, building permits, etc)
We do not charge for our time, but we ask that the ministry requesting help pay a one-time charge of €300 and also partner with us by supplying transportation costs to and from the site and room and board costs during the site visit. One or two members of our staff travel to the site to meet with the ministry, and discuss its needs, goals and desires. A typical site visit lasts from two to four days. Transportation costs can be shared if there is another ministry site in the area to be investigated. In addition, the ministry receiving our services is asked to cover typical office expenses, such as office supplies, phone calls, faxes, photocopies and other items used to perform the work on that ministry’s project. All of our staff receive their living expenses by faith from volunteer donors who contribute to this need.
