Grove City Nazarene

Long Term Partnership

Between 1970 and 2023, The McKnight Group worked with Grove City Church of the Nazarene with additions at the old site and relocating the church to a new site in the late 1980’s. At the new site the partnership has produced 12 building phases totaling over 232,000 square feet. On the new site the church has four multi-ministry spaces for various age groups, a 3,000 seat worship center which is also used for performing arts, classrooms for a Christian School of 800 students, and an incredible preschool children’s building with a food court and commons area.

Like many churches, Grove City Church of the Nazarene entered its first phase when it relocated needing to meet the current ministry requirements, while providing space for new ministries as well. The Church’s partnership with The McKnight Group has aided the church, now more widely known as ‘The Naz’, to provide facilities through the church’s years of steady expansion and growth. Creative, flexible, multi-ministry buildings allow the church to serve people seven days a week. Church relocations are no simple task. To efficiently reach the potential of a new facility, and to minimize the inevitable disruption of construction and moving, thoughtful planning is critically important. Often, master planning is divided into separate phases that help churches achieve manageable growth. This can be the most effective and prudent way to achieve the God-given vision for a new property.


New Vision

Now The Naz has continued through a typical church lifecycle. With new vision come new ministry ideas for both expansion and remodel of existing facilities. The McKnight Group continues to partner with the church through the remodel and modernization of its facilities. A new Master Plan was completed in 2022 showing new opportunities to show the love of Christ to the community. Grove City Church of the Nazarene is a great example of how The McKnight Group enables ministries with buildings that work. The facilities have been used to encourage thousands of individuals and families to be served by The Naz and for many to become a part of The Naz to serve and strengthen their relationship with the Lord.
