Finding the Right Location for Your Religious Startup

Just like any other startup organization, location is a top priority for a religious organization.

When it comes to starting a religious organization, location plays a very important role.

The goal is to find a highly visible location in an area with a high concentration of residents who fit your target demographic.

Usually (but not always), religious organizations are located in residential areas where it is easy for attenders to incorporate the organization into their personal lives.

Here's the problem: Finding a leasable space that is capable of accommodating crowds of people can be a tall order in many residential neighborhoods. Combined with the fact that you will be competing for space for more highly capitalized startup businesses, this severely limits your location options.

Many startup religious organizations get around the problem by holding their services in community centers, hotels or even schools. Others lease storefronts in shopping centers, giving them the ability to control and utilize the space for both services and other events.
