First Baptist Church Allen Gathering
During the Master Plan process, the first priority established was expansion space for the Children’s Ministry and successful day- care that was already in place. First Baptist Church Allen also realized during the planning process that, in the rapid growth of their campus, there was no “front door,” and no real gathering space. The church commissioned a new connecting link between the existing buildings and the planned Children’s Education Building. HH Architects responded with a soaring double volume rotunda space that married the two story lobby or the existing Colonial Revival Sanctuary with the entrance and overlook of the newly designed contemporary Children’s Education Building.
