Inspiring Body of Christ Church

Design for a new 4,000-seat sanctuary across the street from the existing Inspiring Body of Christ Church campus began in a somewhat unexpected way. Pastor Rush asked that the sound of the choir be supported in the space and that the sound be as natural as possible. He also hopes that members of the congregation feel encouraged to sing and speak, particularly as he walks through the space during his sermons. These attitudes, perhaps born out of their intimate-feeling original 1,200-seat space, are continued throughout the design and construction of the new building. Emphasis is placed on a community experience and acoustic communication, while providing shaping and treatments to optimize amplified sound.
