First Church of God – Bellefontaine


The 1st Church of God hadn’t taken on a major building project since the 1970s, and it showed. The popular church lacked the ministry elements that are so necessary today: multi-ministry spaces that appeal to people all week long. A previous classroom wing was demolished to make room for the addition, which includes a large, flexible space for activities and fellowship. When the new building was complete, the existing sanctuary was remodeled to increase seating and provide a state-of-the-art sound booth. “With the significant multimedia upgrade,” says Pastor Gary Brown, “we’re able to enhance the worship experience and become more relevant for young adults.” The church’s new Upward Sports Ministry has further raised its profile in the community.

Case Study

We have seen our attendance and giving increase. All our
ministry opportunities have been enhanced, especially with children and youth. Our new facilities have given the church an even more positive image in our community. The McKnight Group is kind of like the ways of our Lord: You can trust them.”
