First Baptist Odessa

The project added 67,000 SF to the church campus and includes a new sanctuary space. The existing worship area was restructured as a wedding/funeral chapel. The new sanctuary offers theater-style, terraced seating that curves around the main stage. With seating for 1,500, the new sanctuary reflects First Baptist Odessa’s recent growth. The project features use of the latest in audio/visual technology and theatrical equipment. The stage serves as the pastor pulpit and the setting for the church’s musical and dramatic productions. Projection screens measuring 22 feet by 14 feet tall flank either side of the stage. The project also provides a large gathering space behind the sanctuary for use outside of Sunday worship. A cafe area is included within this gathering space. The new building connects to the existing Family Life Center through an indoor courtyard.
