Morning Star Master Plan

Client
Morning Star Church

Description
Morning Star already had a Master Plan when they came to us.  But they wisely perceived that the design did not respond well to their needs or reflect their personality as a congregation.  So they turned to Vessel to completely re-imagine their future growth on this 24.7 acre site.  The key paradigm shift was realizing that the previous master plan was designed as an outdoor campus of buildings in a cruciform layout.  This was an approach that might have been a better fit for a Catholic church, but would not work well for an Evangelical Christian church.  The layout we co-designed with Morning Star plans for ten years of phased growth that will properly support and enhance the ministries of the church.
