West Orlando Baptist Church’s vision materializes

West Orlando Baptist Church, a growing congregation in metro Orlando (Winter Garden) partnered with The Collage Companies and BGW Services to make their vision of an expanded church ministry a reality. With six weekly services, over a dozen active ministries, a preschool, and a strong desire to reach more people, the congregation realized that expanding its facility would be the next step in growth.

The West Orlando Baptist Church project involves the construction of a new 28,000 SF auditorium and classroom addition to the existing church building. With a budget of $5 Million, work includes tilt-wall construction, the creation of stadium seating for over 550 people within the sanctuary space, and site work allowing for additional parking. Outside the auditorium space, the walls are lined with classrooms, choir rooms, offices, and nursery spaces. A new “third space” beyond the auditorium is designed to be a comfortable and interactive environment for the community.
