10 Mission Per Square Foot Program

In 2015, Faith & the Common Good launched a program called Mission Per Square Foot (MPSF) designed to help any congregation fully harness their building in a way that meets its mission, acknowledges its capacity, protects the environment and serves the larger community. These Ottawa case studies explore how diverse faith communities are fully and sustainably utilizing their buildings, guided by a clear mission and in service to the larger community. The MPSF program was re-labelled Regeneration Works: Places of Faith in 2017.
