Brookhaven Church in McKinney, Texas, incorporates financially sustainable business models that will serve the community and generate income for the ministry.
The design features a 16,800-square-foot daycare facility with an outdoor sports court, playground and splash pad.
Additionally, the master plan also includes a retail pad for a fast-food restaurant to be added in the future on a portion of the church property.
The new sanctuary includes seating for 360 in the first phase of construction, with an additional 120 seats planned.
A large third place gathering area will be situated just outside the sanctuary. It will feature a café, baptistry, welcome center and dual check-in stations for the children’s ministry/daycare wing.
“We didn’t want to build a facility we would just use for a couple of hours. We wanted to build something that would be a service and a blessing for the community to use all week,” said Glenn Meredith, senior pastor of Brookhaven Church. “We wanted people to look at us and see our church as a place they wanted to come.”
This project was completed in July 2018.
The Building God’s Way (BGW) Approach seeks to revolutionize the way church buildings and Christian school facilities are designed and built. They cut construction costs by up to 30 percent by integrating three foundational principles of Stewardship, Relationship and Outreach, www.bgwservices.com.
