Conversion of Historic Coca-Cola Bottling Plant to Worship / Event Center
Project Completion Date
The Genesis Project is a church that has grown from a local church plant in Ogden, Utah to a multi-site movement across the nation. When not in use for church services and events, The Genesis Project operates as a full-service event center, daycare and youth center as well as a home to various community service and help organizations. As part of this project, the church also renovated an adjacent coffee house called Hub City Coffee, which has become a popular local destination, hosting local, family-friendly, live music events. This merger of diversified business and ministry has become a model for planting vibrant, growing, embedded churches nationwide.
The Genesis Project is located in a historic 25,000 sf Coca-Cola Bottling Plant that has been completely renovated. The new look has an industrial, loft feel with exposed brick walls and ceilings, wood floors, hanging lights, fireside lobby, and warm reception areas. The Grand Ballroom includes a performance platform, stage lighting, kitchen, bar, and state-of-the-art audiovisual system. A dual staircase leads to the upper east side reception area, main lobby, lounge, bridal room, patio and administrative offices. The west side reception area includes a large lobby/gathering space, media center and nursery.
