Make Church Architecture Great Again


Brian Holdsworth describes himself as a creative professional and struggling thinker.

In the following video he gives a terrific argument for why we need our chinches to be beautiful.

“The buildings we design to focus our attention on God should reflect his beauty. And not just because it would be nice, but because God can use that to reveal himself to us. …This is something that for large parts Christian history we did understand.”

“Let’s get back to commissioning Christian designers who will allow the Holy Spirit to create beautiful buildings that people will want to visit generations from now, whether they are christian or not.”

Take a look and be sure to watch it to the end.
