The Element Church project was a $2.2 million design assist with Mantel Teter Architects in Kansas City.  The team worked to convert an existing 50,000-square foot big-box department store into an 800-seat Sanctuary, expanded children’s education space, youth space, office space and a new fellowship foyer to support community and connection. The project was completed in two phases encompassing eight department relocations while allowing full operation of the church throughout the entire project. Elder worked closely on a weekly basis to coordinate and minimize staff disruption as well as maintain full operation of Sunday Services each week.

“It’s evident you guys run a class-act operation when you are able to keep your cool with everything going on.  Thank you for displaying integrity in business.  THANKS!” Derek Mowery, Student Ministries Pastor.
