Dr. Art Rhodes (Chairman of the Church of God Benefits Board-financial division for the Church of God organization in the United States)
Work: 423-478-7131 Home: 423-476-8176
TASK-After attempting to sell a large church/school facility with gymnasium in the southeast area for several years, through another real estate broker. I was asked to solve the problem. Very complicated transaction involving two non profit organizations and the City of Greenwood Village. I closed the transaction, $1,800,000+, in approximately 5 months.

New Covenant Christian Church (formerly Parkhill Christian Church)
Rev. Reginald Holmes (Senior Pastor)
Work: 303-377-6237 Home: 303-322-6818
TASK-Sell their current church facility (5500 East 26th Avenue) and a single family residence the church owned (2572 Hudson Street) and relocate the congregation into a larger facility. The task was complicated by the requirement of the congregation to close on the sale of their current church facility, the single family residence and the new church facility ON THE SAME DAY since the congregation didn't want to make a double move. The transaction was further complicated by the involvement of the main denomination (out of state) that was intimately involved in the decision making process at every step of the way. The transaction was further complicated because the owner of the church facility I sold to New Covenant Christian Church was two recently merged Jewish congregations (their elder board was 114 members) that had a doctrine/covenant that prohibited financially aiding a non-jewish church. The transaction was even further complicated when our inspections of the building revealed that over $130,000.00 of furnace/boiler/asbestos work would need to be completed before we could close on this 40,000+ square foot building. I did coordinate all 3 properties closing on the same day and the congregation was able to move immediately from one facility to the next.

I found the perfect site, negotiated a donation to the church from the site owners (owners live in the Filipino Islands), annexed the site into the City of Arvada, rezoned the site for a church/school, coordinated the new building design, obtained denominational and city approvals, sold their church facility and office building. Closed on the church facility, office building and completion of their new facility.
