As one of our very first clients when we launched Equip, Ashley Ridge Church had a need for a permanent home. The congregation had been meeting in a high school since its formation in 2011. Along the way, we masterplanned different sites as doors opened and closed. In 2022, we were engaged to help the church masterplan a 12-acre site and design a 22,000 sf. facility Ashley Ridge could finally call home. It was no coincidence the site is directly next door to the high school in which they’ve been meeting all along.
The design includes a phase a 450-seat worship space, children’s classrooms, student worship, administrative areas, and a lobby space. In future phases, the 450-seat worship space will be repurposed and a new, larger worship center will be added. In addition, part of the masterplan includes a pavilion that will double as a parking spot for their food truck they use to deliver hot meals to underserved neighborhoods in the community. As a church whose heart beats for its community, planning for this future growth is crucial.
The design is scheduled to be completed by Summer 2023 with construction to begin shortly thereafter.
