New churches rising
It's been a rough year for commercial contractors. Unless they've made a "niche" business in churches. It's hard to say if there's a church building boom on a national level or if, like all real estate, it's location, location, location. Some areas are prospering from growing attendance and growing revenues in the recession, while other churches shrink with the economy. "Overall we are seeing a difficult economy for congregations, but it is really to be expected as this is the pattern for churches in multi-year recessions," says Phill Martin of the National Association of Church Business Administration. "The last year is always the hardest."
