First United Methodist Church McKinney - Student Ministry Building
Located in the historic downtown district of McKinney, Texas this church seeks to create a new Student Ministry building to better reach a younger generation and serve their community. The challenge became developing a modern design for students that connects with the heritage and architectural styling of a 150-plus-year-old church.
Grace Avenue United Methodist Church - Master Plan
A well thought-out master plan for Grace Avenue United Methodist Church is the guiding beacon for the latest of three new buildings. The Arts and Crafts style traditional sanctuary hosts a soaring exposed wood deck ceiling supported by stone columns, woven copper wall sconces and custom chandeliers.
North Madison Christian Church
North Madison Christian Church describes itself as a different type of church. So, when they came to realize their space wasn’t matching their message, they turned to Mankin Media Systems for some help. North Madison’s location was outdated and needed a complete overhaul. They wanted to design a space that was inviting, modern and created a unique ambiance while theatrical in nature. North Madison wanted to receive new systems, audio video and lighting.
