The concept of a portable church is catching on! And, why not? It’s a great way to cut down on operational costs, and plant yourself in the heart of your community. Moreover, portability gives growing churches the much-needed flexibility to upsize or downsize according to their needs.
Here are eight ways in which a portable church system can help your church save some big bucks and precious time:
1. Do away with high building costs:
Go portable and say goodbye to sky-high construction or mortgage costs! A portable venue allows your church to stay debt-free. Why let debt for a permanent church building choke your church finances, when you can channelize that money towards what really counts – ministry!
Wouldn’t it be great to give more to the Kingdom, rather than to a building?
2. Say goodbye to ongoing and hidden costs:
What can be worse than ridiculously high building costs? Perhaps, the ongoing (often hidden) maintenance expenses that come with a permanent church building. Right from roof and plumbing repairs to monthly cleaning and security services – there’s a long list of bills waiting to kill your church budget!
Well, you can be free from those troubles with a portable church model. With the latter, you don’t spend on cooling or heating repairs. Neither do you pay for constant maintenance and upkeep. In fact, you don’t need to bother about utilities like phone and Internet either!
Without the burden of these expenses, you are free to give your best to what is most important – the people! Isn’t this good enough reason to go portable?
3. Don’t bother searching for equipment:
Time is a precious resource! Wouldn’t you rather spend it on building community instead of searching for equipment?
At Portable Church, we make sure that all our gear is current, robust and creative.
What’s more, we offer you customized equipment to suit the specific needs of your church. So, whether you need more monitors or better lighting – we’ve got you covered.
4. Save time on conversations that aren’t kingdom focused:
Instead of having meetings about broken HVAC systems, or what you need to do about the leaky roof, your meetings can instead focus on community outreach, disciple-making and the growth the comes from that!
5. Skip the trouble of testing the equipment:
Why spend hours on testing equipment, when you can get someone else to do it for you? Our team at Portable Church Industries goes the extra mile to guarantee that your church receives equipment that has been thoroughly checked.
We especially make sure that all the gear for the kids area is safe, age-appropriate and manufactured by brands that you trust.
6. Cut down on transportation and storage costs:
“The church is in the life-change business, not in the stuff-moving business,” says Van Der Harst, founder of Portable Church Industries.
With Portable Church, your church equipment is purchased, tested, packed and delivered straight to your doorstep! Plus, it all comes in customized portable cases that hold all the gear, allowing you to roll in, set up, tear down and roll out with ease!
In fact, we also offer custom-made trailers to help you with your storage needs. Where else can you find such personalized service?
7. Give your volunteers a hassle-free experience:
Volunteers can kiss their worries goodbye with an efficient portable church system by their side! Portable Church has developed products and processes that make setting up and tearing down equipment a breeze.
In fact, our teams offer thorough training and tutorials to help your volunteers work with super speed and efficiency. No hassles, no burnout!
8. Save time with ongoing assistance and support:
