Summit Church

Design and Ministry Needs

The Summit Church had a couple of ministry needs they were forced to address. They needed more space to meet their focus on children and youth ministries. Sunday services had grown fifty percent in the past two years. The Summit Church had a desire to reach more people through community and family events and had a vision of working towards being multi-site and planting churches. The McKnight Group listened and partnered with the Summit Church to provide guidance to meet their needs.


The McKnight Group designed a new two-story Children and Youth Building connecting to their main facility. In addition to this building, an expanded lobby was created through the remodeling of existing classrooms, providing more room for their cafe and women’s restroom. The children on the first floor of the Children and Youth Building have their own space now for worship, classrooms and restrooms. The second floor provides the Youth with their own worship space, along with classrooms and restrooms.


The Children and Youth Ministry building has given them the space of being “second to none.”  They are more equipped now to support their mission: “Every Life Made Different.”
