The BGW Construction Delivery Model
The BGW delivery model is based on 3 key principles that make it truly unique compared with conventional construction methods.
Church Builder Network
Building God's Way construction is delivered through aligned BGW Builders across the country. Each aligned builder has a heart for ministry growth and is committed to Christian principles of relationships, stewardship, and outreach. As the project general contractor, these BGW Builders are carefully selected and trained based on their integrity and capacity to deliver quality facilities on your campus.
These award-winning construction partners work as the local BGW representative within your region. BGW School and Church Builders are a key element in the BGW stewardship philosophy, ensuring the significant 20-30% savings on each project.
"It was marvelous, the way God worked in each of our hearts. There was a whole group of people with differing personalities, but the Lord was in charge, and that's what each of us wanted, to do this God's way. We were committed to that and because of BGW's firm commitment to build God's way, with that triangle effect, God was at the center. He's given us this beautiful sanctuary for His purpose and His use. Now we just want to be about our Father's business."
– Peggy Spengler, Minister, United Methodist Church | PA

The results of this team approach are consistent high quality, church floor plans, timely delivery, Godly relationships and reduced costs on construction, operation and maintenance, better accountability, and minimal conflict on every project.
We believe that engaging subcontractors in the vision for your construction project leads not only to project savings, but also ministry opportunities. Pre-Construction Stewardship is an organized process coordinated by the BGW team to generate additional savings during construction. This savings is measurable and significant to any ministry and is generated through both gift-in-kind and subcontractor negotiations and value engineering.
Pre-Construction Stewardship is not a process that employs pressure tactics on subcontractors; it provides opportunities for them to come alongside your church in partnership at ground floor level. This unique program leverages the linkage that each ministry has to the local subcontractor community as well as the expertise, knowledge and value engineering ideas of subcontractors during the design phases.
In addition, Pre-Construction Stewardship provides better sequencing of construction plans and processes, giving the knowledge of BGW experts who know “what to ask for” based on thousands of presentations throughout the United States and millions of dollars of gifts given to date. The program is also specifically coordinated with BGW Supply ,who understand church floor plans, to reduce mark-up on items that are not purchased by sub-contractors and to enlist significant support from the local contractor community.
"The Ministry of Construction is the HEART of Building God's Way"
The true heart of Building God's Way is found in a program called the Ministry of Construction. The Ministry of Construction is an organized outreach program coordinated between BGW, the local builder partner and the church or Christian school. The goal is to show the love of Christ to those that are working to construct the new facility and to serve them throughout the duration of the project. Throughout the years, we have seen our clients embrace this program and we have developed a wealth of unique ideas and strategies to reach out to subcontractors while they are building the facility.
