Understanding Your Options Before Starting a Building or Renovation Project

The firm's projects have won numerous awards, and Waldon Studio has been recognized among the top firms in the region.

Mr. Waldon’s family came to the United States when Ravi was five, and Ravi eventually sensed God’s call to become an architect. Since then, he has had the privilege to participate in more than one hundred and fifty hundred church projects throughout the United States. Ravi has also been actively involved in all phases of church leadership. As an elder, trustee, youth leader, and Sunday school teacher, he has a deep understanding of ministry and is able to bring that perspective to the design of church facilities, which he sees as "tools for ministry." In his career, Ravi has served in many capacities, including the National Director of the American Institute of Architects’ Design, Preservation,  and Housing and Interiors Programs; and he has been the keynote speaker at numerous church facility events.
