Modernizing and Making Room for Growth at OKC Faith Church
Overview of this Project:
- Oklahoma City, OK
- Pastor Terry Bates
- 18,500 sq. foot addition, 80,000 sq. foot renovation
Because Highway 40 passes right by OKC Faith Church, Pastor Terry wanted to maximize curb appeal by modernizing the 50-year-old facility both inside and out. He also wanted plenty of room for his congregation to gather both for worship and recreation, which was formerly impossible in the tiny foyer.
The Vision for OKC Faith Church
Churches by Daniels worked with OKC Faith Church to reface the entire building exterior building in order to improve curb appeal and attract new members. Creating more space for both worship and play was a top priority for the church leadership.
The space now contains:
- An 18,500 sq foot addition and an 80,000 sq foot renovation
- A cafe
- A bookstore
- Additional restrooms
- A new atrium with a curved glass exterior
- An indoor children’s play area
Church Design Challenges and Solutions
OKC Faith was desperate for central gathering space – they had a tiny foyer, very little space for fellowship, and a limited budget. But the Churches by Daniels value engineering team worked with OKC Faith from the very beginning to maximize the budget while meeting the needs and vision of the church. The team also helped the church through the process of acquiring special permitting approval from the city’s riverfront district for the expansion.
The expansion has allowed the church to take existing space and repurpose it for fellowship and recreation. Moreover, the addition has opened up areas of the church that before were not conducive to Sunday morning traffic flow. The renovation maximizes the use of windows for natural light, dramatically increasing curb appeal for everyone passing by on the highway to see. The church is now much more inviting and useful for members old and new.
A Relevant and Supportive Worship Space
OKC Faith had a vision and the designers of Churches by Daniels captured that vision and are well on the way to help their ministry accelerate and grow. This open and inviting gathering space will better meet the needs of a modern church and will make an impactful first impression on potential new members.
