Bethel Baptist Church Master Plan and Phase I Addition | Alamogordo, New Mexico
Initially, Greer Stafford was hired to complete a Long Range Master Plan in order to identify the physical needs of the church community and examine options for a phased building plan. Working with the church’s Planning Committee, we completed a thorough assessment of the existing site and facilities, conducted interviews with staff and representatives from the various ministries, and gathered information on the congregation’s most pressing future needs. From the information collected, we proposed several options for future construction, complete with projected costs and conceptual drawings.
After presentation to the full congregation and further discussions, our final recommendation was for a three-phased project that will include a new education/administration building, expansion to the Worship Center, and a new Youth Center/multi-purpose building.
Construction of Phase I, the Adult Education Center, was completed in 2011. The new 9,500 square foot building includes eleven classrooms and a floor that opens to a multi-purpose
room with adjacent kitchen and restroom facilities.
Phase II, which is awaiting funding, will include a new Fellowship Hall with a bookstore and coffee bar to connect the Phase I addition to the existing church structure.
