OASTER provides growing ministries and churches with a comprehensive suite of services that are based on proven principles of success. We know that a new building project brings as many challenges as it does opportunities. We help you address the challenges and leverage the opportunities.
Strategic Ministry Planning is a management tool used for one purpose only: to help a church do a more effective job in ministering to its people and its community. A Strategic Ministry Plan (SMP) will help focus energy and resources, and ensure that everyone in the church is working toward the same goals.
At OASTER, we know that the right development team can make or break a church’s project. For that reason, we work closely with church leaders and staff to determine the right delivery method for the project, whether it is design/bid/build, design/build, project manager, general contractor or lump sum bid.
Finance & Fund Raising
At OASTER, we encourage our ministry partners to pay cash for their buildings. An effective fund raising campaign can make that possible. By partnering with the best of the best in the fund raising industry, we can assure our partners of a successful campaign. If the church must borrow, we work with the top church lending organizations in the country and work aggressively to negotiate the very best in interest rates and terms.
Construction Related Services
Singer Paul Simon once wrote a song entitled 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover. In the construction industry, there are 50 ways to overcharge your client. For this reason, OASTER provides Christian ministries with Construction Phase Services. These services assure church leadership and staff that they will receive what they pay for, and that the price they pay is fair and reasonable.
Income Producing Opportunities
Good stewardship demands that we make the most of the assets that God has given to us, including facilities. The average church sits empty 90% of the time! At OASTER, we partner with industry experts to use the facility and develop numerous income streams that will pay the mortgage, insurance and utilities for the church so that our ministry partners can stay focused, on mission and free from financial hassles.
