Church Plans for Less (CPFL) had been serving the church development market for more than 20 years when, two years into the "Great Recession", the leadership at CPFL approached Church Development Services (CDS) to see if CDS would be interested in acquiring certain assets in particular, assets having to do with the design division.
In December of 2010, certain assets of CPFL were acquired and joined forces with CDS, one of America's premier church design and construction firms.
CDS is a full-service design/build company able to provide guidance and the skills necessary to help churches from pre-planning to Opening Sunday.
This acquisition expanded the already large amount of church floor plans and church building plans CDS had to offer. This also strengthened our ministry approach of offering quality construction drawings at a value that all qualified churches could afford.
Many church projects are smaller, and don't need a full service design professional, saving money in the process. Many churches have internal resources who are willing to volunteer their time to help save the church money. Often, churches will have trusting relationships in the community that compliment the services of Church Plans For Less. This allows substantial savings to be retained by the church.
