In order to continue making disciples and serving Central Kentucky, Buck Run Baptist Church is relocating from its historic site at the forks of the Elkhorn Creek to a 100-acre property affectionately called Rehoboth, which means “plenty of room”. The relocation is the result of decades of faithful giving and several generations of leadership. Buck Run is excited about the future and what this new location will mean for ministry.
The new facility was designed to be a premiere worship facility and community event center in the area. This 52,000+ SF building will be a beautiful addition to it’s surroundings and feature a full brick exterior with canopy drive-through entrance, spacious 9,000 SF lobby/gathering space with vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, floods of natural light, exposed wood ceiling beams, hanging lights, café, lounge seating, indoor playground and navigational kiosks.
The 900-seat sanctuary will feature an extensive raised performance platform with built-in baptistry, full AVL package with control box / sound booth, backstage storage area, rehearsal room and cry room. The youth center will have a separate auditorium for worship and performance space, large classrooms, children’s gathering area, preschool and nurseries.
BGW / Hargett / et al,
I just walked around the construction site, inside and outside, for the past couple of hours, and I wanted to take a brief moment to thank each of you for the exceptional work that has and is being performed. I cannot thankyou enough for all that you have done and are doing. Please pass along our thanks and appreciation to all of our subcontractors and workers at BGW, Hargett, and others. From design to construction to site work, a tremendous amount of time and energy has been expended and I want to thank you for all that you have done thus far. While we have a great amount of work left to be done, it is evident that this will be a beautiful church facility – everything from the setting, to the layout both inside and outside, to the individual features inside the church. You have truly poured your heart into your work and we thank you for that.
Our Deacon body met this week at the church construction site and prayed that we would remain steadfast in our faithfulness to God and that He woulduse this new location for the church to reach our surrounding area and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have prayed throughout this effort for each of you and the workers at the site that God would work in and thru you, to keep you safe and healthy, to draw you closer to Christ, and to bless each you as you labor for His glory. We are now into the last three months of the construction and I pray that God would continue to provide us the wisdom, the strength, and the perseverance to press ahead to complete the task that is in front of us. Weknow and trust that He will because we serve a God who is able. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to assist you in any way. And, again, thank you for all that you do.
