Community of Faith Church
Community of Faith, a growing church in Hockley, TX, was in need of a new worship room after outgrowing their current worship room within a year of building it in 2007. The LIVE Design Session provided a process for Pastor Mark and his team to explore the right options within the right budget, and ultimately decide on building an expandable worship center designed for both present and future ministries using a design for 2,626 seats that can be expanded to 4,336 seats.
The design included a temporary wall at the back of the initial stage location that can be removed, allowing the stage to be moved back and roughly 1,700 additional seats integrated into the space. Interior design choices — such as exposed beams, concrete floors and some other industrial features — allowed the church to divert thousands of dollars toward ministry rather than the building.
With an intimate family feel, the new worship center design allows COF to meet their needs for ministry both today and tomorrow. Their new worship center opened in Christmas of 2015 to 13,000 attendees.
