Drew Sinclair will be speaking on a panel about exploring creative redevelopment projects aimed at optimizing existing real estate within the faith community.
It is becoming an increasingly common tale: Churches are facing a challenging combination of factors including older and dwindling congregations combined with aging buildings with increasing deferred maintenance. Increasingly faith groups are seeing their real estate holdings as both a liability and an asset.
The speakers represent three different perspectives: the perspective of the Church, the developer, and a consultant.
Panel speakers include:
- Bishop John Chapman, Anglican Diocese of Ottawa
The 9th Bishop of Ottawa with recent experience redeveloping a historic property downtown Ottawa.
- Drew Sinclair, SvN
Licensed architect and community planner, with experience within the faith community.
- Rodney Wilts, Windmill Developments
Partner in a real estate development company, with experience working with Churches and other non-profits in redevelopment strategies that maximize environmental, social and financial benefits.
The event will take place at Zibi, 3 Rue Eddy in Gatineau, Quebec, on Tuesday, 24 January 2017 from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Tickets are free – please register here.
