Everything you ever wanted to know about land acquisition, building design, finance, fund raising, and working with builders – but didn’t know who to ask.
Making Room to Make Disciples provides answers to help you lead your people and your church to success.
After designing and building churches for more than a decade, Brad Oaster began studying secular business plans in 1990 when his friend and mentor, Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple Computer) taught Brad the philosophy and principles behind the development of Apple and its insanely great products. Brad spent several years traveling with ‘Woz’ to Mac Academy, Apple Expo’s and other Apple events with the goal of transferring the creative spirit at Apple to Christian ministries though out the world.
Brad used that information to build his own “insanely great” company into the largest church design and development firm on the west coast. And he did that in just four years! Brad then shared Apple?s strategies with Christian ministries, first in California and later throughout the nation, and helped those ministries go on to become some of the fastest growing churches in America.
Today, OASTER works with bible based, Christian ministries in the development of five-year ministry plans and facility designs that when combined, create a road map that connects today’s reality with tomorrows potential. Every church that works with OASTER in the development of a ministry plan and new or updated facilities, and implements the plan, can expect to triple in size within the five-year period.
