Champion Forest Baptist Church is a multi-campus church serving several areas in Northwest Houston. The North Klein Campus in Spring, Texas was a significant step in becoming "one church in many locations". Since 2013, the North Campus has seen considerable and consistent growth, resulting in a need for a new permanent home and master plan. Kirksey completed the new Master Plan which includes spaces for worship, administration, adult education, Pre-school and elementary education, children’s worship, student’s and college ministry, a café, and central maintenance. The campus will also include a playground, baptistery, parking, and a multi-use field.
Through an interactive design dive, the Kirksey team worked with the Champion Forest team to establish several principles that would drive the overall design. Champion Forest Baptist leaders identify their community as a "church on the move". It became clear that the design intent must match the inviting and open nature of the people who make up the congregation, so enhanced indoor/outdoor connections between spaces and buildings were designed to encourage people to stay as long as they would like. These spaces also incorporate the surrounding environment to achieve the "pastoral" design aesthetic that the Champion Forest staff identified during the design dive process.
