​Kurt’s responsibility thru the Discovery and Architecture stages is to ensure that the project team is in complete alignment with your expressed needs.  Kurt’s extensive experience with all aspects of the design and construction process facilitates excellent communication between all members of your project team and allows you to have an efficient and seamless project from start to finish. 

Kurt Williams graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management.  Ranking at the top of his class, Kurt was recognized by the school as the outstanding senior in Construction Management.  During this time Kurt also served six years with the 1313th Combat Engineers in the Army National Guard, attaining the rank of Sergeant.  Kurt continued excelling in every position he attained in the construction industry, from site management to project development, due to his gifts for administration, leadership and team-building.  His process design for church development has won state awards and recognition throughout the construction industry.  With almost thirty years of construction experience, and over twenty-five of those years focused on Christian ministries, Kurt has worked with nearly two hundred churches in the United States and abroad.  Kurt continues to assist growing ministries through T&W Corporation’s membership and active participation in the National Association of Church Design Builders. As Chairman for the NACDB's education committee, Kurt is uniquely positioned at the cutting edge of the latest church growth trends and design concepts being used by some of the country's largest ministries and thought leaders.

Growing up and working in a family owned excavation business gave Kurt deep roots in the construction industry.  Kurt’s true passion is to serve the church.  Kurt and his family live in West Lafayette, Indiana where they are thirty year members of Covenant Presbyterian Church.  Kurt has served on the Board of Directors for the Covenant Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, and the School Board and Facilities Management Committee for Lafayette Christian Schools, where his children graduated.  Kurt and his wife, Julie, have a heart for missions and have organized, trained, and led multiple short-term missions work teams to Mexico, Romania, Japan, and Ukraine.  After coaching his son, Tyler, and his daughter, Katie, in several sports, Kurt has traded his coach’s whistle for a referee’s whistle.  As an IHSAA Football Referee, you might see him on any number of football fields around the state of Indiana on Friday night.  Since becoming “empty nesters”, Kurt has also caught the triathlon bug and has finished with a Top 50 State age group ranking the last several years and a top 25 ranking in 2016.
