THE PROJECT

The proposed Student Center Project is a 14,800 square ft remodel, renovation, and repair of the CBC Family Life Center/Gymnasium. The proposed project creates longterm facilities for our growing and vibrant student ministry. We believe that we can meet the facility needs of the student ministry through a remodel and renovation of the existing building. This project will have a strong impact on the student ministry, young adults, church, and community. The Student Center Project seeks to accomplish the following goals:

• to provide dedicated gathering facilities for students and young adults.

• to create a modern and welcoming environment for students and their families.

• to create a functional worship / event area without losing use of the gymnasium.

• to update and renovate all classrooms used by students and young adults.

• to update restrooms to be handicap accessible.

• (project elective depending on funding) elevator access to the second floor of Slayton Building and Student Center. 

The project will include a worship space, coffee shop, hangout areas, gymnasium renovation, basketball court repairs, renovation of six classrooms, handicap accessible bathrooms downstairs, and bathroom renovations upstairs. The option of installing an elevator to provide access second floor is also being explored and dependent on project funding. Imagine a place where students can connect with God and one another. A place where students and young adults are equipped to go into the world and be used by God to impact the world for His glory. The Student Center Project can be that place!
