Serving in a church committee may not sound like a spiritual-growth opportunity, but it is. The building committee is the group of church members who act on behalf of the church leadership and congregation to guide the project through the programming, budgeting, design and construction process. They are one component of the church building team that includes the church, the architect and the contractor. The building committee oversees and directs the work of the church building team and should be selected by the pastor or the top leadership of the congregation. At least one or more staff members such as the pastor, executive pastor, church administrator or facilities director should serve on the committee. The believers selected should be based on strict qualifications and should meet the approval of the church leadership. The building committee should consist of followers of high integrity and spiritual maturity. They must be fully committed to the church and 100% behind the "vision" of the pastor. They should get along well with others and work well together in a group since they serve God of standard and order. They must be reliable brethrens who will show up for meetings, they must be excellent listeners and have the wisdom to make the right decisions. They must understand they are committing to serve until the job is finished and that this could be a period of several years. The length of time will depend on factors that are not always under their complete control. There are only two acceptable excuses for leaving the committee: their death (or severe long-term illness) and secondly, job transfer to another city. This is not an assignment one can quit because he/she gets tired of it or things do not go the right way. They should know that God’s standard is a standard of pure holiness and power. “In order for us to walk in this standard we will have to have a fear of the Lord because when there is no fear of the Lord the devil takes an opportunity, he will come in like a flood. We have got to root out and tear down everything that is in opposition to the Lord Isaiah 59:19: So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” Those working in this department must not accept anything short of God’s holiness and righteousness, it will be hard for us to get God to do something when our lives are not right before Him (Isaiah 59; 1).
