Thank You For Sharing Your Creative Church Stage Design!
Church Relevance has been collecting creative church stage design ideas from churches around the world for many years. We are proud to announce that we now have 7 complete lists and 1 in the works! These lists are full of creative church stage designs! Thank you all who have submitted images of your church stage design in the past! We always look forward to seeing the creativeness within the church and the way that God has you used your gifts to give back to the church. God has blessed some with a wonderful ability to create and design and being able to showcase God’s work through your gifts is unlike anything else in the world. We would also like to thank Jonathan Malm for his contributions with church stage design ideas.
This project began in 2008 and has slowly grown to become a key resource for the DIY church stage designer. But don’t be mistaken, some of the designs that you see were not DIY, there are church stage design companies in the U.S. that specialize in making these visions come to life. Many hours are spent designing and building these beautiful stages, and we want to do our part in recognizing first all the hard work and time invested in these church stage designs and the beautiful designs themselves.
We plan to continue this project moving forward and compile lists for every year. Our hope is that you are inspired by a church stage design in one of these lists and it helps you to spread the Gospel through your community. Remember, your church stage design is not the most important thing in your church. What’s most important is bringing those in your community to know God and if having a beautiful stage design helps in some slight fashion, our work here is complete. Enjoy these stage designs and keep checking back for the most current shout-outs!
