BGW designers partnered with The Collage Companies to design and build a 12,000 SF expansion to the existing Journey Christian Church facility in Apopka, FL. Funds for this building project were raised by members of the church and the project came in under budget and three months ahead of schedule. $164k was returned to the church in cost savings. View the construction in action!

The multi-use space incorporates a large gymnasium with a roll-up bay door, restrooms, new showers and an Adventure Land children’s area with renovated classrooms, new cabinetry and finishes throughout as well as a fully equipped worship space and performance platform. The new Youth Center was converted into a black-box style theatre complete with a full AVL system and projection wall design capabilities, transforming this unique space to fit any theme or mood. The theatre is used for worship, performance and other events. The spacious main lobby and gathering area includes a cafe, lounge, surround seating, and welcome center. Vaulted ceilings, hanging lights and floor-to-ceiling windows give this space an open and airy feel with easy access to all other parts of the building. The strong emphasis on children and families can been seen throughout the building.
