Hope City Church in Joplin, Missouri had outgrown its first facility in two short years. Church leaders selected Crossland Construction Company to build a new worship center, complete with storm shelter, to house and protect the growing congregation. The 38,400 square foot Varco Pruden structure sits on a large lot just four and a half miles from the church’s first home. The building features a standing seam roof with an R-30 Sky Liner System. Exterior features include numerous line changes, a cantilevered mezzanine, and exterior upsweep canopies. Inside, a modern, industrial design is seen throughout, with polished concrete floors. Large windows bathe the space in sunlight.
The church was forced to rent a larger space during construction to accommodate visitors and guests. Excited to get into their new space before having to renew the yearly lease, the pressure was on Crossland crews to meet an extremely tight schedule. Crossland did not disappoint – with an original 12 month schedule, crews completed the Hope City Church in just ten months.
