The Church at Polaris
Design and Ministry Needs
NewPointe Community Church contacted The McKnight Group about their expansion plans after receiving proposals from another architect. After several presentations to the church, it was evident that The McKnight Group clearly understood ministry at a very high level.
As a result, McKnight was chosen as the designer to make NewPointe's vision a reality. They had outgrown their existing space and with 1,400 members, needed an innovative design to support their growing membership, expand their ministries and allow the church to reach out to the surrounding community. Quote

NewPointe Community Church has something for everybody. Built in a new location, this large 102,528 square foot multi-ministry facility features three children's worship spaces, a youth center, and a main worship space that seats 1,400 people for a grand total of five different assembly spaces. Located just off of the beautiful and inviting lobby is an indoor playland for kids to enjoy, café and book store. There is also a full-service kitchen, café kitchen, conference rooms and offices for staff.

Since the completion of the new facility, NewPointe Community Church has doubled their membership in just a couple of years. There is a master plan for expanding the existing facility to accommodate this growth, and the church has developed two additional satellite locations in nearby towns.
