Central Baptist Church
Central Baptist Church in College Station, Texas is a 90-year-old church that is experiencing significant growth of young families. In order to better address the changing demographics, Central Baptist hired GFF to design a new dedicated children’s building. At 77,000 square feet, the new building has effectively tripled the size of the existing children’s facility. Beyond adding additional classrooms the new design allowed the children’s staff to rethink how they educate and the worship environment for today’s children. The program was consolidated into a single area adjacent to a new dedicated children’s commons to improve access for parents and increase security. Large and small group environments were arranged to improve the children’s worship experience and improve operational efficiency. GFF and the church collaborated with Little Mountain Productions out of Tulsa, Oklahoma to provide child-specific theming to further animate the space. The project was completed in 2018.
