All Church Architect - 801 or More Seats
Church of the King- New Campus
The collaborative dynamic between builder and church enabled a foundation of trust that ultimately led to the successful completion of the project.
Crossroads Community Church - Repurposed Facility
Crossroads Church in Parker, CO is a masterful repurposing of an abandoned automobile dealership. Converting high-ceiling service bays into a soaring worship center along with the large former car showroom as the welcome center made this transformation eye catching and practical all the while in the heart of an established community. The church has grown from 800 to 2,300 in two and a half years.
Mission Hills Church - Children’s Area
Build it and they will come. This original Mission Hill’s children’s wing was maxed out within a year and a half with 534 children up from 197. This new design added 29,000 square feet to the children’s area, and the existing spaces were repurposed. They currently average 813 children each Sunday. The church has grown from 1,250 to 4,143.
Northplace Church - Master Plan
Northplace Church’s Phase I, was a significant step forward in meeting the growing congregation’s needs. Northplace partnered with Lee Architects and Goff Companies to produce a 52,000-square-foot new project. It features a state-of-the-art 1,400-seat worship center, a children’s area and a spacious commons area with 22 foot-high water feature.
