New Construction – 71,800 SF Worship Center
This vibrant church body needed to make additional room for the growing crowd of worshipers in the college town of Ames, IA. Building God’s Way made Cornerstone’s 92 acres of land holds a prime location on the corner of two heavily trafficked highways. The focal point of the campus expansion is a new 2,000-seat worship center equipped with a full performance stage, allowing the ministry to offer an amazing worship experience for young people, as well as provide additional outreach through self-produced drama productions available to the local community. The lobby “third space” gathering area features a warm industrial design, with polished concrete floors and exposed ceilings and provides a central access point to all the different ministry spaces within the facility. This gathering space includes an open baptistery that also serves as a water feature. The new facility also includes a state-of-the-art blackbox theater for youth worship and activities.
