According to the Church Insurance Company, every month four congregations close their doors for good. Additionally, churches have the largest carbon foot print as they are the most underused space  in the nation.


The Episcopal Church Building Fund is hosting its fourth annual ecumenical symposium to help  leaders to use their church buildings as an asset, to become a thriving part of their communities.


A panel of five dynamic bishops will answer questions on leading radical change.  A successful disposer of redundant real estate will share keys to keeping faith alive after a closure.   Leaders of a nomadic churches will discuss the benefits of doing church without a building, and experts in building maintenance will bring ideas on how to save money and run a greener operation.  And others will focus on making the building the hub of the community, and finding financial stability through creative use of real estate assets.


The Episcopal Church Building Fund, an independent, self-funded 501 c3 founded in 1880  and guided by a board of trustees, is the only national organization supporting congregational building projects and overseeing a revolving loan fund.
