our story

We are part of our Master's Plan.

With over 20 years of ministry experience as a pastor, leading his church through 3 building projects, and many, many successful projects delivered on time and on budget, Rodney James was hand crafted and called to start Master's Plan Church Design & Construction.

Rodney is a graduate of Oklahoma State University. After school, he worked as a director of marketing and pilot for an executive jet charter company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  God soon placed a call on Rodney's life to enter full-time ministry, and he was led to Sequoyah Hills Baptist Church in Tulsa.  He served as the Worship and Executive Pastor for seven and a half years and then accepted the call to serve as Lead Pastor for another eleven years.  During this time, Rodney led the church through 3 major renovation and expansion projects.


During the third building project, Rodney hired a local company to assist with a very complicated scope of work.  He built a relationship with that company that led to his transition out of full-time ministry within the church, to full-time ministry partnering with pastors across the nation to build the church.  He found incredible joy and fulfillment in guiding pastors through every type of construction project, drawing on decades of ministry, business, and construction experience.  He developed a process in which he was able to successfully walk with pastors through every stage of a building project including casting their vision, understanding the design and construction process, designing the right facility for their ministry, and connecting them with the right partners to have a successful project.

The processes that he personally developed allowed the firm he was working for to complete every project they designed and constructed under budget for 7 consecutive years.

God gave Rodney a clear vision for a new organization that could better serve churches, pastors, the community, and the Kingdom of God. As this vision solidified in Rodney’s heart, the time came for God to open the door for the next transition which would be the largest step of faith he had encountered in life. Based on the confirmation from God’s Word in a miraculous series of events from Isaiah 43:18-19, Rodney followed God’s leading and Master’s Plan Church Design & Construction was birthed.

Our Core Values

As God opened the door and called Rodney to start Master's Plan, He also surrounded him with people who have the same passion to parter with pastors and churches to design and build functional ministry facilities in the safest and most economical way.

Every team member at Master's Plan believes in the vision God has given, exemplifies our core values, and lives our mission every minute of every day.

We are committed to helping churches get what they need for the vision God gave them.  We are committed to designing facilities that are within the real budget of each church.  Finally, we are committed to delivering on-time, on-budget, and on-vision.


What Makes Master's Plan Church Design & Construction Unique

We know what it's like to lead a church through a building project...the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Our founder Rodney served as a pastor for 20 years allowing him a unique perspective when it comes to leading your church through the design and construction process.

By applying his experience in ministry and construction, we are well equipped to lead and guide your pastor and building team through this very complex journey.


Our goal in design is to ensure that your facility will function according to your mission and vision. Without this approach, unfortunately, it's very likely that you will end up with a building that doesn't facilitate your ministry. 

We have seen far too many church facilities that are designed to meet architectural requirements but completely miss ministry needs.  The ministry approach to design is looking at your project through an entirely different set of parameters.

Our proven process has allowed our team to complete every project we have designed and built under budget for the past 7 years and counting. 

The Master's Plan process provides a safe way for pastors to trust us, and know that their project can be completed without having to find additional funding at the last minute.

Accurate, realistic construction costing throughout the design process is the only way to ensure that a project can be designed within the budgetary parameters.  Statistics tell us that 82% of projects are designed beyond budget limitations.  It is impossible to reduce the cost of the project after design, so designing within the budget is the only way to ensure the project can be completed at or under budget. 

We have developed a very refined process that allows our team to remain within the budgetary parameters.
