Summit Church has approved the design for renovations and construction of a new campus at 603 West Curtis Street in Simpsonville. The project, designed by Good City Architects of Greenville, S.C., will serve as the combined campus for the current Mauldin and Simpsonville locations of Summit Church.
“The goal of this project is to provide expanded space to serve the communities of Mauldin and Simpsonville and continue intentionally equipping followers of Jesus to live as missionary disciples among the places we live,” said Jason Malone, pastor of Summit Church. “This construction will allow Summit to almost double the space we now have to serve those communities.”
Summit Church launched in September 2007 and now has five congregations across the Upstate. The newly renovated and constructed facility will provide space for 500 to gather for worship, space for teaching nearly 100 preschool and elementary age children and an open gathering area to help welcome attendees into the facility. A small courtyard in front of the building, connected to sidewalk improvements planned by the City of Simpsonville, will provide space for church activities and use by the community.
Summit Church places a distinct focus on church planting, and leaders wanted a space that could be used as a model for future congregations Summit will start across the ten Upstate counties by 2030.
“Good City Architects helped us see our mission, values and distinctives as an integral part of the project, while providing a space that is both functional and reproducible,” added Malone.
Heartwood Constructors of Greer is the general contractor. The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
