Tallowood Baptist Church welcomed the challenge to accommodate a growing and vibrant community. To assist with the expanding congregation, Kirksey developed a master plan that would best utilize their constrained site. This was the first major building campaign in over 30 years, so the significant changes nearly doubled their program spaces.

A 57,000 sf education and administration building welcomes members and visitors to the Tallowood campus. The building connects directly to the existing education facility and includes 26 new preschool classrooms, an indoor activity room, a large nursery, 10 large children’s classrooms and support spaces, third floor meeting rooms for adults, as well as administrative offices. The building is designed to be secure, yet welcoming and inclusive, and acts as a gateway to the campus.
