The new building provides a unique gathering spot for the church’s youth and a state of the art facility for contemporary worship. The multipurpose room houses community athletic programs Sunday worship for 1,000 and all church meetings and dinners. Straight forward tilt wall construction was used to control construction costs and schedule so that a 256 foot long climate controlled bridge could constructed over De Zavala Rd., connecting the north and south campuses.  Special, youth centric interiors were developed for middle and high school and college age groups.
