Buck Run Baptist Church has been on a mission to glorify God by proclaiming Jesus Christ since 1818. The church had reached full capacity in their existing building. In order to continue making disciples and serving Central Kentucky, the church relocated from its historic site to a 100-acre property.
This 52,000+ SF building is a beautiful addition to its surroundings and features 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 features 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 has a separate auditorium for worship and performance space, large classrooms, children’s gathering area, preschool and nurseries.
“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. You have truly poured your heart into your work and we thank you for that.” – Bruce Scott, Buck Run Baptist Church
