Obsessed about community and the organizations that make them run
A strong non-profit requires the right space to bring their missions to life. With tight budgets (especially when related to operations over programs), each project is personal and requires attention to stay on both time and budget. Collaboration and transparency are critical as nonprofits must be good stewards of the money they receive. At Mowery, we believe in the critical work these organizations do and the impact they make not only on the community but on people’s lives. That’s why we build each project like it’s our own.
With years of experience, we’ve worked side-by-side with Chambers of Commerce, churches, community education centers, fire departments, libraries and more. Whether it is a renovation, addition, or new construction, each project has unique needs to deliver a space that aligns with the organization’s mission. Plus, we understand the nuances of how to work through fundraising, grants, and government regulations if necessary.
When it comes to church construction, Mowery is a long-time exclusive partner of Building God’s Way and part of the Building God’s Way network of Kingdom Building Services. Together, Mowery and BGW have constructed dozens of churches and Christian schools throughout central Pennsylvania. This partnership aligns us with a nationwide network of strategic partners and our process significantly reduces both upfront building costs and long-term maintenance and operation expenses. Plus, we engage the congregation in the design process, utilize unique cost saving stewardship and in-kind giving opportunities, and encourage on-site involvement by volunteers to reduce costs and encourage fellowship. These specialized services allow each congregation to build a personal place of worship.
We believe in the great work nonprofit organizations do throughout our community. We are proud to work side by side with them creating buildings that impact the communities in which they live.

“ We are truly thankful for Mowery's efforts leading to completion of the project on-schedule and under-budget. The on-time completion allowed us to conduct dedication of the new church just three years after the fire. The speed at which the construction occurred boosted the spirits of the parish and the community. Completing all the work under budget has permitted the church to reduce the amount of the mortgage and debt service.” - St. James Lutheran Church, Huntingdon, PA
