Compass Christian Church New Worship Center
Client: Compass Christian Church
Location: Chandler, Arizona
With a vision to reach and transform the lives of the community, Compass Christian Church is expanding its 25.6-acre campus. The new design expresses the church’s commitment to the community by providing significant outdoor gathering spaces and amenities (Field of Dreams) linking the new worship center in the center of campus to the student center (The Bridge) and the children’s center. The new 45,000 sq. ft., 2,000 seat worship center was designed with the church’s desire for a modern, authentic, open feel. A 3,000 sq. ft. café will promote fellowship and a sense of place/connection between the existing children’s building and worship center. To improve its street presence, enhanced signage, and a braided stream water feature was implemented in the center of the campus. An additional 500 parking spaces will be added to create a total of 1,159 spaces.
Critical thinking – and listening to and understanding our clients – is a must when addressing the needs of any worship community. Solutions must be uniquely suited to the mission, vision, and spiritual value of each client. At Todd & Associates, we make the vision a reality for urban, rural, traditional, contemporary, large, small and emerging churches, as well as those long-established. To do this, we work closely with our clients, applying our skills in planning and design to give critical input, always taking their mission, purpose and values to heart.
