Many of us have heard the criticism that the Church is “too rich”. As the world’s oldest and largest non-profit entity, the Church certainly has a wealth of assets at its disposal. But the truth of those assets — what they are and how they contribute to building the Body of Christ — is much more nuanced than many know.
Among the many assets entrusted to the Church, real estate is possibly the most visible and the most affected by changing demographics, economics, and market trends.
On April 28-30 2022 we hosted in Rome experts in the field who are working on the ground to reimagine and revitalize Church properties in a way that better serves our apostolic and evangelical needs, while providing much-needed revenue for the Church — and using those savings (and earnings!) in support of their critical ministries.
Co-hosted by Global Institute of Church Management and the Fitzgerald Institute for Real Estate at the University of Notre Dame, the 2022 Real Estate and the New Evangelization Conference hosted experts in finance, real estate, theology, and more.
