GRAND PRAIRIE CAMPUS COMPLETION
This past year was a big one for the Grand Prairie Campus! Not only did we create the blueprint and master plan that would drive the improvements and updates, we’ve started the construction, and it’s moving along smoothly. With the newly added elements, such as a bookstore, café, classrooms, expanded kids area, and renovated Auditorium, the Grand Prairie Campus has the capacity to become one of the largest campuses. We hope to finish the renovations and celebrate their completion in the fall of 2015.
SOUTHLAKE CAMPUS PARKING
Attendance is still increasing at the Southlake Campus—especially on big weekends like Easter and Christmas when many people attend as first-time guests. We want everyone to feel like there is a spot for him or her. We have drawn up the plans and are expecting the permit approval any day now. We’ll begin in the spring of 2015 to create 434 new parking spaces.
FRISCO CAMPUS LOBBY EXPANSION AND UPDATES
If you’ve ever seen Frisco’s Lobby after a service, you know it’s packed to the gills. But we have a plan! We already have the preliminary drawings to expand the Lobby and plans to offer capabilities similar to the other campuses.
NRH CAMPUS CHANGES
The NRH Campus is constantly bristling with activity, and they need more space for events and ministry classes. We have plans drafted for a full remodel, including space for more Equip classrooms, a renovated and expanded kids area, and increased capabilities similar to the other campuses.
TWO NEW CAMPUS PROPERTY PURCHASES
The addition of new extension campuses has been on the hearts of Gateway’s elders for some time now. We have identified two targeted areas in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, specifically surrounding the North Fort Worth and Frisco Campuses. The new campuses would help relieve the overflow issues at both the North Fort Worth and Frisco Campuses and help further the Lord’s work in those areas. We are prayerfully dependent on God’s leading as we identify new locations and campuses.
Please pray for these initiatives to become realities and for God’s hand to rest on the planning and execution of each one.
