Summit Park Church
Lee's Summit, Missouri
Summit Park Church is an extensive renovation of a 1970’s era church in Lee’s Summit. The rapidly expanding congregation was in need of new auditoriums with room for 700+ people, space to linger before and after services (with a coffee shop and plenty of comfortable seating), youth and children’s ministry spaces. The church had an aggressive schedule with a deadline to have occupancy before Easter 2022. Finkle + Williams worked closely with the contractor and the church’s ministry team on this fast-track project to renovate the existing auditorium, expand the parking, completely renovate the exterior of the building, perform structural upgrades to the all-wood structure, add a 3,500 SF chapel, add a café and fellowship space and renovated all of the existing classroom spaces. Literally every wall in the existing building was moved or modified! Work began in October 2021 and the construction and design team were able to deliver the project in time for Easter.
Simultaneously, the church acquired the adjacent 2-story office building and began design of additional office and ministry space. The renovation of the office building also has an aggressive program, updating the entire exterior of the building while creating a comfortable, minimal but modern office interior environment.
A future phase will add a 1200 seat auditorium to the building along with additional fellowship space.
