A Message from the President
Gene Musser

I have had the privilege of serving my country for 28 years, retiring from the Air Force Reserve in 2007.
Unfortunately, I witnessed firsthand the horror of war and the madness of religious strife and extremism. My personal experience led me on a journey eventually to Kirby-Smith Associates, a company dedicated to building the kingdom of God by assisting churches.
Today, I am President and Owner of Kirby-Smith Associates. As a firm, we wish people, of all faiths that are committed to peace, well; however, our focus is exclusively the Christian Community. As President, I passionately believe that strong churches make for a strong community, and that a strong community makes for a strong nation--a nation built in faith and justice for all.
Our mission at Kirby-Smith Associates is helping your Christian Ministry to Grow. Since our founding in 1938, we have served more than 20,000 churches, schools, and faith communities raising more than $6 billion.
Kirby-Smith Associates has served more than 35 different church denominations, and we have worked with 20 different partners to provide a full range of services to our clients.
In this issue, we highlight our partners. Have a faith-filled and safe Holiday season.
Charles Eugene Musser, President

Choosing Church Furniture
-Designing from the Inside Out-
The worship experience represents who you are, as a church, as a community, and as a body of believers. This experience includes visual, auditory and physical sensations which greatly enhance or reduce the value to the church member. All of these elements, and more, must be considered when designing your church building from the inside out.
