National Community Church

Washington | DC

National Community Church, led by Pastor Mark Batterson, partnered with Equip Studio to develop a design that told their story and the story of our nation’s capitol. The solution began with the renovation of the Blue Castle, a historic structure in the heart of the Navy Yard in D.C. Once the home to the city’s cable car workshop, the Castle is now home to NCC’s broadcast campus.

The design includes a 1,000-seat auditorium, a second Ebenezer’s Coffee location, administrative office space, and a children’s environment that doubles as a daycare during the week. NCC’s model to be a marketplace ministry is creating a new way to “do church” that is impacting development all over the country.
