"Working with Steve Upham to create a master plan and to design our first phase building has been an incredibly positive experience. His personal ministry experiences, combined with a great education and years in the field of church architecture, uniquely qualify him to design a church facility that is both beautiful and very practical. He knows how churches function, what they are trying to accomplish and what they need to minister effectively in this present generation.  

The Design Summit enabled us to accomplish in two weeks what normally takes several months. It allowed us to have immediate input into the design and gave our people a sense of ownership. It was truly a memorable experience.

One of the amazing things about Steve to me, was how he was able to capture the design, look and feel that we hoped the building would have. He discerned the personality of our church and correctly interpreted our dreams. He took our vague and abstract ideas and brought them to life.  I highly recommend him to you.”           
-- Glenn Meredith, Senior Pastor

“Steve Upham met with our Building
Committee, listened to our needs,
and proceeded to offer us a number
of different building concepts... based
on our experience I highly recommend
them. Everyone says it has great

The congregation loves it!
We are pleased with everything about
it.You exceeded my expectations. This
is a design that you can and should
be proud of.”

—Dr. John Judson,       
    Sr. Minister       

We create irresistible environments so your visitors and member experience irresistible experiences so they keep coming back and grow in Christ.

Church ministry begins with an invitation. The church building is the most visible representation of that invitation.  As a church architecture specialist, Crosspointe Architects incorporates ‘architectural evangelism’ – the process of combining good building design with the outreach and evangelism goals of your church. 

We offer a full range of architectural services – from consulting to master site planning to full construction plans – you’ll find everything you need right here!

Crosspointe Architects is not just an architecture business that has designed a few churches. No, we’re much more than that.  As a Christian architect, Steve Upham understands the challenges of a church's desire to grow versus the complexities of funding additional space. Our team is experienced and committed to deliver your worshippers a beautiful quality building in a timely fashion and will save money for your church in the process.

We understand the process of church building

Whether your congregation is considering an entirely new facility, or adding on to an existing campus, the steps are similar.  Our proven methods will assist you in the conceptual design process, with effective fundraising packages enabling your campaign to launch quickly, and the processes leading to construction plans.

Construction of church buildings has become very complex with a large cast performing various roles within the project.  Crosspointe Architects, as your designated church architect, can perform as your single point of contact. 

What steps are involved in the church planning process?

Often, the first step in church building planning is to identify physical and spiritual goals with your congregation encouraging feedback and suggestions.  Key to any successful building plan is to include the users in the design process.  The Master-Site Plan and Conceptual Building Design should be developed together as a cohesive design. Crosspointe offers two unique preliminary design solutions: the Design Summit Workshop and the Turning Point Day Consulting Package. Call for the details - this is a unanimously successful approach.
The next step is presentation plans and artist’s renderings ( and perhaps a video animation) so you can launch your fundraising campaign. The next two steps are design development - where the details are finalized and, lastly, the construction drawings are completed from which building is built.

The "Design Summit Workshop" - a unique creative process for better and faster building design solutions

Our exclusive "Design Summit Workshop" provides a process for collective visual brainstorming between Crosspointe Architects and designated church members/leaders.  This architectural building design process involves real building users (church people) to incorporate specific knowledge of the programs and mission which will improve the design itself and can compress the preliminary design process from many months to a few weeks.

Crosspointe Architects can provide you with the professional help you need throughout the planning process.

Funding your church building design just became easier!
