Church Facility Solutions (CFS) is a trade name of Development Advisors, LLC. Together, we provide A to Z commercial real estate development services to User and Investor clients. But of all the commercial development that we perform, we are most passionate about leading churches that need to expand their facilities. It is the majority of the work that we do.
CFS’ principals have a passion for serving churches with their building expansion plans. We are church real estate and building development experts. We understand church operations and finance. Our strategic planning gives you a clear view of the size and the total costs you can afford for your future building project. CFS’ passion aligns with its Principals’ personal values and goals.
CFS helps you create new places for worship, teaching, fellowship and community outreach. We lead our you and your church through the process of acquiring land and developing a new building or acquiring an existing building and renovating.
The ability of churches to expand and relocate is becoming increasingly difficult to accomplish because land and building costs continue to skyrocket and some local governments are proactively excluding non-profit (non-taxpaying) users from their undeveloped subdivisions. In today’s environment, finding the best solutions to a church’s real estate needs often requires creative, outside-the-box thinking and execution. CFS provides you this highly specialized expertise.

CFS recommends that your church hire professional assistance for your church building expansion project. By doing so, you and your church staff are able to focus on what you do best – expand the kingdom. Utilizing church members to manage expansion projects is usually not the best solution to accomplish your church’s objectives as this may lead to conflicts of interest that can harm long-standing relationships. The direct involvement of church members in project management often interferes with accountability and can compromise a your opportunity to obtain the best service and prices possible.
