Jacob Birch Helps Prevents Church Closures And Provides Beds For Seniors

Churches in Canada are facing a crisis, with many forced to shut their doors and sell up. The future of 27,000 Canadian church buildings hangs in the balance as their current economic climate worsens.

What if there was a way of solving both problems at the same time? Well, Jacob Birch has come up with the perfect solution! His tried and tested proposition nicknamed 'Seniorfy' has heads turning and all for great reasons! Seniorfy involves converting empty church spaces into senior accommodation. Birch aims to tackle two community issues at once by creating more affordable living facilities for seniors, whilst allowing churches to benefit financially in order to prevent closure.

Jacob Birch is a respected Pastor whose passion lies in helping his local community and churches stay afloat. He converted his empty church space into 34 affordable housing units for the elderly in 2011 and has since supervised two other large-scale projects of the same nature.

His new report claims that recent studies completed by Kendra Fry, have predicted that a third of Canada's 27,000 church buildings will close their doors by 2022. He claims in the report that the idea is within the church's best interests both financially and morally.

He includes a reference from the early church in his report, Act 6, which states that the provision of home care is of utmost importance, coming second only to its mission of discipleship. Birch can be contacted by email to discuss the redevelopment of church buildings.
