Site and Facility Analysis

A Site and Facility Analysis (PDF) is ideal for any congregation or school facing a decision about its location or facilities. It is designed specifically to help your congregation or school determine:

  • How well your site and facilities match your ministry needs
  • The capacity of your site and facilities to meet the needs of new or expanded programs

The analysis is completed by an Architectural Advisory Committee member experienced in the design and planning of LCMS congregations and schools. Your Architectural Advisor will use your existing site and facility plans, current design standards, agency requirements for your site and congregation or school statistics to conduct the analysis.
