There are thousands of churches around the country that have numerous unused classrooms and other meeting spaces. What if you were to renovate these spaces to attract youth into your facility during the week, where you can model and share Christ with them?
Perhaps building a youth center seems out of your reach, as you are focused on maintaining your existing facility? Most church layouts are not ideal for teen centers, but with some hard work and creative thinking, we’ll make it work for you. We’ll help you revamp your building from a security, functionality, and aesthetic perspective.
Rock Solid’s primary focus has been on engineering a building that can be converted into a neutral facility for other groups to use, which begs the question, “If you can design a teen center that doesn’t look like a teen center when not in use, why can’t you take a facility that looks like a church and convert it into a teen center with simple lighting, moving equipment, and minor renovations?”
In addition, many churches have declined to a point that they have unused space that can be designated for a teen center. It may take some adjustment to have kids in your building that are not always respectful of the facility but try to adjust. Take heart. That’s your mission field.
Many have stood in awe of the magnificent cathedrals built many generations ago. They were and are an expression of the glory we bestow upon God. But it’s important to realize that the church is not a building. It is the people, and many folks need to rethink their theology of church buildings before they can again use them to reach the unchurched. This may be hard medicine to swallow, but you need to stop thinking of the building as God’s house, and as a tool for reaching others for Christ.
