All Church Design - New Project - 801 or more Seats
Grace Bible Church
Grace Bible Church, designed by Jackson Galloway Associates, blends the edges of rustic and grand sophistication. Elegant contemporary craftsmanship with a mission flare gives this light-filled campus a warm texture that invites visitors to make themselves at home.
Harvester Christian Church
Harvester Christian Church needed a dynamic and larger worship center to replace its existing Sprung structure. Visioneering Studios Inc. helped Harvester create a world-class, 1,200-seat venue that will serve as the hub for future campus renovations and expansion as they help people on their journey of faith.
Joyful Church’s desire for a fresh vision of Christian architecture, led to their selection of Beck to design a new campus. Central to this vision was a design that expressed a strong symbolic Christian message, but that also incorporated traditional Korean symbols in a fusion of architecture, faith and culture.
GFF Architects has designed a new outdoor amphitheater for LifeAustin Church to expand the church’s music ministry and to enable hosting of a variety of performance, worship, and community based events. The design features 1,000 fixed seats under cover, with capacity for another 500 persons on a lawn that surrounds the seating area.
River Valley Church
Interpreting the “DNA” of River Valley Church and reflecting it through the language of architecture and design has been a joy for Vanman Architects and Builders, which built the church’s newest campus in Shakopee, Minn. Through careful site placement, simple forms, natural light, views into the community, and maximized square footage, River Valley declares its vision through its facility.
