Church Architect in Dallas

With over 70 years of experience in church-specific architecture in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it is safe to say that Brown, Brown & Associates Architects knows a thing or two about designing and creating a place of worship that serves church ministers and congregations alike. Our team possesses a unique ability to design spaces that foster interaction while not compromising the sanctity of such sacred buildings. Unlike certain architecture firms in Dallas who simply see a church as just another building, we at Brown, Brown & Associates Architects know that this is far from the case. Our attention to detail and committed focus to specializing in sacred locations, such as churches, means that we will always go the extra mile to ensure that your church is designed to the highest standard possible.

Extensive Range of Church Architecture

At Brown, Brown & Associates Architects, our mission is to cater to the needs and requirements of all our clients in an inclusive and holistic fashion—your input is very important to us. So, whether you are a pastor or a member of a church group, our goal is the same: creating the perfect space for your religious family to grow and share together. As well as churches, our architectural services also include:

  • Design and creation of new sanctuaries
  • New Christian education buildings
  • Family life centers
  • Expansions to any existing facilities


One of the biggest misconceptions that we at Brown, Brown & Associate Architects encounter when it comes to designing small churches is the misguided belief that the design of this sacred space needs to be functional and little else. This thought process couldn’t be further from the truth. The reality of the situation is that even the smallest of churches can have amazing designs that can enhance their place of worship. Another point to remember when it comes to design for small churches is that the average attendance in North America is approximately 200 people. So, if your congregation is slightly below this figure then do not panic, the reality is that you are most likely in the majority. Three tips that we at Brown, Brown & Associate Architects use to improve smaller-sized churches are as follows:

  1. The Importance of Lighting: There is little doubt about it, the lights that adorn your church’s stage will last for decades. It is for this reason that we encourage all our pastors and church groups to prioritize lighting above all else when it comes to your budget. Honestly, take it from us, if you’re a small church looking to design a stage that will last for years on a smaller budget then lights should be placed above all else.
  2. Coroplast is Key: When we are designing stages for small churches, and big ones, we use coroplast. Its inexpensive nature, combined with flexible and adaptable characteristics make it the perfect choice for churches of all shapes and sizes. The malleability of coroplast means that it can be shaped and lit for multiple looks that will create a sacred place of celebration and worship for your church.
  3. Don’t Forget About PVC Pipes: Not dissimilar to coroplast, PVC pipes are inexpensive and great receivers of light. This means that we can color it and configure it so it best meets your specific requirements.

In conclusion, the take-away point that we advise all the small churches that we work with is to prioritize lighting above all else and, where possible, to work with adaptable and inexpensive materials that can further enhance this vital resource.

There are plenty of very skilled and hardworking architects in the Dallas area. You might meet with them, be very impressed with their proposals but do they have the experience necessary to build your church? Building churches presents unique challenges not found in the typical design of buildings. This is something our firm has learned in our generations of designing churches all over the Dallas area.

When we are designing a church, we work closely with clients. A successful church design cannot be achieved if it’s not done in collaboration with the owners. After all, to create a satisfying design, our church architects need to understand how people interact with and experience your services. But it doesn’t end there. We also need to understand who is going to be using the space when it’s complete—what are the demographics of your church’s community and what type of amenities should be included to maximize their spiritual experience when they attend your church?

Working in conjunction with our clients allows us to accomplish this. Our goal is to use our years of experience as church architects to create a place of worship that stays true to your church’s values, style, culture and community. In other words, we can’t come in with preconceived notions of how you will be using the completed structure. It’s our job collaborate with you, the engineers and the construction professionals for a better final result, minimal construction conflicts, less time wasted and the overall success of the project.

While we take the main sanctuaries and ministry spaces very seriously, we can also work together to make your church a destination by adding:

  • Children’s facilities with age appropriate themes
  • Youth facilities
  • Coffee shop
  • Bookstores
  • Interior design
  • Stage design
  • Kitchen facilities
  • Education spaces

Once we know all the ways your church serves, or plans to serve, the community, we can incorporate it into our design. The Brown, Brown & Associates Architects team doesn’t believe in chasing trends because we want your design to stand the test of time. So, if you are hoping to remodel an existing or build a brand-new church, trust the most experienced and qualified church architects in the Dallas area.
