Okolona Christian Church—New Worship Facility

Louisville, Kentucky

This project was designed as a complete family environment, with all three buildings combined as one. The two-story Worship Center features a sloped, theater-style auditorium with 1,500 seats. It also houses 22 administrative office, 28 classrooms, a gathering room and a library/greeter’s room.

The Children’s Center contains 28 classroom and two separate “celebration” areas with performance stages which can accommodate children of different age groups. This portion of the facility was designed by Abel Construction’s in-house design team. Additionally, the Family Life Center contains 16 classrooms for children in grade six through twelve, as well as an auditorium, kitchen, running track and full-sized basketball courts.
