Discovery Church

Discovery Church

Sauk Rapids, MN - 24,000 square feet

The church wanted something different from the rest of the churches located around their new site on Highway 15 north out of St. Cloud in Sauk Rapids. We were asked to develop a Strategic Master Plan for this growing church’s third relocation with a focus on the next generation. This new relocation brings together Discovery’s mission and unique site characteristics where by there is no true “back” to the site. It is strategically planned as a “hand shake” to the community with the main hospitality / lobby space greeting you on your approach drive. The “path of Discovery,” is their discipleship model and a concept that is also used in the plan to organize the program elements to tell a story about the ministry and orient their guests. Hospitality and flow were a high priority in planning the facility for a first time visitor. The site is purposefully planned for the ministry to grow graciously while maintaining their “hand shake” welcome.
