Texas Church Expands to Welcome its Growing Community
Overview of this Project:
- Cypress, TX
- Senior Pastor Bob Reed
- 38,000 sq foot addition, 24,000 sq foot renovation 1500 seat sanctuary
With new families joining its congregation every week, CyLife Church, located just northwest of Houston in Cypress, TX, desperately needs more space! Much of the church’s growth is due to the increasing popularity of the Cypress community itself, as the congregation’s campus is surrounded by commercial buildings, and multi- and single-family developments.
This is CyLife’s first building project, so choosing the right partner was crucial to its success. Senior Pastor Bob Reed connected with our team at Churches by Daniels and hired us to design and build the major church renovation project.
A Custom Church Design For a Dynamic Congregation
The CyLife Church community determined that they needed a 38,000-square-foot addition, a 24,000-square-foot renovation, and a new 1,500-seat sanctuary to accommodate their growth. Upon the project’s completion, the church will have a space for middle and high school students to worship, a new children’s space, and a larger sanctuary. The church consulted with our planning team to select and sell 40 acres of land to finance the project.
Some specific challenges with this project include constructing the new building over an existing pond and ensuring that the new addition complements the existing structure. Pastor Reed also requested that the master plan include capacity for future expansions including a community outreach space, a gym, and a soccer field. As always, the Churches by Daniels team is up to the challenge!
At Churches by Daniels, we use a thorough design process to bring every church’s vision to life. Our team began the CyLife project by meeting with Pastor Reed and the leadership team to complete a needs assessment, draw a proposed floor plan, create colored renderings, and develop a preliminary budget. Next, our designer met with the church’s team to refine the project, and finally, we ironed out the final details and prepared documents for submittal to the Cypress permitting agencies.
The CyLife team has been very engaged throughout the process, communicating with Churches by Daniels regularly so we can keep them apprised of progress.
Accelerating the Cylife Ministry and Vision
Our team at Churches by Daniels is honored that CyLife chose us to accelerate and expand its dynamic ministry and fulfill its future vision. So far, the renovation and expansion are progressing smoothly, and the congregation is thrilled with the preliminary results.
