Master planning for this new 34-acre campus included a multi-purpose gymnasium, over 100,000 sf of education space, youth facilities, sanctuary and small chapel. Phase I included the design of a 110,000 sf building with an 1800-seat multi-purpose sanctuary. The space doubles as a competition grade gymnasium supporting Youth and Local Mission programs.

The gym has portable basketball goals and provisions for power volleyball standards. The main worship space blends technology and tradition to provide a contemporary worship experience. The initial phase also included three educational wings extending off a mall spine. The wings are divided into categories: 1) nursery/primary, 2) primary/youth, and 3)adult/ administrative.

Large open interiors along the mall spine reveal check-in and gathering locations into each wing. The Phase II component of the project was a two-story building addition consisting of a fellowship hall and additional or fourth education wing. The addition also included a commercial kitchen adjacent to the fellowship hall. Phase III involved the addition of parking lots and box culverts to accommodate the growing congregation. Both Phase I and Phase II buildings utilized slab on grade foundation.
