Buddy Siebenlist, Principal

As the Founder of Siebenlist Architects, Buddy Siebenlist has over 20 years of professional success in architecture, construction and development. 

Church staff experience as Director of Facilities at a mega-church with over 22,000 members, K-12 School, Day Care, Restaurants, TV/Radio Media, etc., has provided Buddy with unique insight and understanding about the operation and agenda of churches of all sizes and ministries.

"Seeing the big picture" quickly and easily, his expertise includes matching unique church project criteria (acoustics, image, master plan flexibility, etc.) within project budget prioritization. The result has meant the start-up and completion of numerous projects that would have otherwise been stuck in budget deadlock. A resolute problem-solver, Buddy has a reputation for bringing projects to fruition.

Certified nationally with current licensing in 17 states, he has church projects of all types and sizes ranging from Miami to Albuquerque and beyond, and his work has been recognized by a variety of magazines and publications. For nine years Buddy was honored to serve as the Architect Consultant to the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, utilizing his experience in church master planning, design, construction, and development.

Buddy and wife Sharon have two girls, Rachel ('93) and Allison ('98). They live near Tyler, Texas, where their passions include raising and showing cutting horses.
