Central Wesleyan Church: Worship Facility, Café and Master Plan
ClientCentral Wesleyan Church
Scale100,000 square feet
Progressive AE created a master plan for a 5,000-seat church, family life center, and student ministry center. As part of this project, the site and roadways were completely rearranged to accommodate the additions. The Phase 1 construction, already completed, included site improvements and minor additions to the building. The Phase 2 student ministry center, a 25,000-square-foot addition to the church, is presently in design. The plans call for the completion of the student ministry center and the new sanctuary by the year 2000.
Progressive AE also provided the complete design services for this 3,200-seat multi-purpose worship center. Included in the worship center is a 4,000-square-foot thrust platform. This platform was designed to house a future orchestral lift for their 60-piece orchestra. The choir area seats 250 people within the worship center. There is an additional choir practice area, which also serves as a multi-purpose room for smaller performances and lectures. The existing worship space was converted into a 400-seat chapel with 10 classrooms located around the perimeter. Progressive AE worked with theater and lighting, audio, and visual consultants due to the complexity of this facility.
