About Brennfoerder

Brennfoerder Architectural Services, LLC, located in Joplin, Missouri, is a full service Architectural and Engineering firm, working closely with additional Construction Management services and specializing in the design and building of churches and church related facilities.

In 1972, Dwight Brennfoerder began working with Walter Goodman at Goodman Church Builders. The inspiration for that company was generated by need.  Walter Goodman was a minister with a congregation that had outgrown its building. Out of necessity, Walter designed and built a larger church. As word of this successful building project spread, other ministers who needed additions or new buildings began coming to Walter for help. Goodman Church Builders was established in 1964 to meet the needs of the Christian community for designing and building quality structures at an affordable cost. It later became known as Goodman Architectural Services, Inc. reflecting the full range of architectural services being offered.  Over time, all of the Goodmans who were  involved had eventually moved on or retired and that very successful mission-minded business was finally closed in 2009.  Since then, Dwight has worked in his own firm, rooted in the rich heritage of the Goodman tradition.
