The ministry provides comprehensive management services for the planning, design and construction of capital projects.

“While it is fashionable in our times to analyze world events merely by looking through the lenses of politics and economics, it is also a serious mistake, for it prevents one from being able to see in three dimensions. To truly understand the significance of global events and trends, one must analyze them through a third lens as well: the lens of Scripture. Only then can the full picture become clearer.” — Joel Rosenberg, Epicenter
The same can be applied to the global needs of mankind, including hunger, illness, clean water, education and social injustice. With indignation, we ask God why He allows these calamities to fall upon His children. And in turn, our holy and righteous God asks us why we stand idle and allow our own brothers and sisters to suffer. Through the lenses of politics and economics, society shortsightedly drafts policy and throws money at the plights of humanity, only to fall short of viable solutions. Yet it is only by adding the third lens of Scripture, that we clearly see the answer: the Church.
“It’s not the work that defines our business, but how we use our business to do God’s work”
