20,000 SF New Construction of Multi-purpose sanctuary / gym / gathering space
The Collage Companies
With steady growth in weekly worship attendance, the church had been in the planning stages on expansion plans for over 10 years. Unable to expand on their existing campus in Apollo Beach, the church began to search for a new site and purchased 25 acres of land three miles south in Ruskin. The new 20,000 SF multi-purpose building includes a 600-seat sanctuary that can convert into a gymnasium or fellowship / event space. The new facility more than doubles the sanctuary seating and provides significantly more ministry space. The building also features a daycare center, coffee house, classrooms, office space, a music room and paved parking for 230 vehicles. The contemporary interior features wood plank accent walls, dropped ceiling panels, canned lighting, tile floors, and lounge seating. Upon completion of the project, the church will move its ministry operations to the Ruskin campus and continue to use the Apollo Beach campus for administrative purposes.
