The author sought to discover a way to lead his congregation through a process of building the program before building the building. This project was accomplished by the author with the help of his congregation by developing a statement of mission and purpose. Goals for continuing ministries developed from that statement then led to the necessity of expanding the facilities and, in this case, completely relocating them. The new facilities were consecrated in June, 1981, with over half of the total cost paid. Without going through the process outlined in the author's document, this project would never have been completed.
