"As a pastor who was hesitant initially to support the construction of a new church facility, I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Steve Carroll did exactly what he promised to do, that is to build us a church fully in line with our parish mission and vision statements that we might become the best church we can be for Vero Beach and beyond. Our new facilities, expertly designed and well built, are greatly aiding our members in doing just that! Rardin and Carroll Architects receive my enthusiastic endorsement without reservation."
- John E. Miller, III Rector and Pastor at Christ Church, Vero Beach, Florida
"We have done several projects with Rardin & Carroll Architects, as well as Master Site Planning, and we would never consider a Construction Project without them. When it comes to Church Design they are knowledgeable, creative, and efficient. Their attention to the details of design, the function of each space, and cost effective construction has proven invaluable to our Church. We are very grateful to the Rardin & Carroll Team – they are the best…! "
- Mark Camp Committee Chairman at First Baptist Villa Rica, Georgia
"There are two qualities that come to mind that reflect Rardin and Carroll’s effort and expertise to design and help us manage the project.
The first is the ‘Wow’ factor. I was recently asked what area of the building my favorite was. I had to think for a minute but told the individual it was the Commons area because every time I brought someone into the building they would say, ‘Wow this is beautiful!’ This is a reflection on the creativity of the Architect, not only to design a functional space but to guide the selection of colors, light fixtures, counters, and cabinets. They worked well with the team from the church and blended the churches selections in with the overall effect.
The second is the financial aspect. The way you know the design meets an organization needs is during construction. If the design is thorough and the organization is disciplined to follow through on selections made during the design phase, there will be few change orders and the project will come in on budget. Our facility was finished within 2% of our original budget. To achieve this Rardin and Carroll helped facilitate decisions with the General Contractor and the church on issues that inevitably come up during the construction phase. On more than one occasion they came up with a solution that had no impact on the budget."

"After completing two different churches with Rardin & Carroll, I would not want to do another project with any other architectural firm. They just know how churches work!"
- John Barber Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church Calhoun, Georgia
"Rardin and Carroll understand the church. They listen to the needs of your ministry and help you craft plans to best serve that ministry. Rardin and Carroll combine both practical use and creative design in their plans, and they have served us well for many years. Whether new construction or renovation, Rardin and Carroll are a great choice!"
