New & Updated Content!


Written by an experienced church building consultant,  Preparing to Build is 180 pages of practical real-world information that will help equip your church to properly prepare for and execute a church building program. 

Preparing to Build has been used as required reading in the Church Admin Class of Liberty University’s D.Min. program. The following are just two excerpts from papers arising out of this class.

Stephen Anderson wrote an absolute masterpiece in his focused book Preparing to Build. It is a high-level guide for any and every church preparing to build new facilities. If churches used Anderson’s work before beginning the process of building, they would save themselves a whole lot of headaches, actually be prepared for what is upcoming, and ultimately make better and clearer decisions throughout the course of action. ”

“In reading Preparing to Build, one cannot help but notice that Mr. Anderson has a heart for his profession and a desire to assist others in understanding building projects. He understands, from firsthand experience, the burden to guide ministers and others through a quagmire of complex situations and confusion within the church building process. This book overall, shows strength throughout its entire content with examples allowing Anderson to expose some of the common problems churches encounter in building projects, but more importantly, how to prevent the problem before it arises.
