Second Baptist, one of the largest churches in the nation, is expanding to meet the growing need for additional Houston-area campuses in Cypress and Cinco Ranch. Both areas have seen significant population growth over the past ten years and Second Baptist is working with Kirksey to design inviting campuses that contribute to these local communities.

Both campuses will feature a 168,000-sf building that includes worship in the round seating up to 4,500 people, a 25,000-sf nursery, GIGL Theater for prekindergarten children, Jump Theater for children from 1st through 5th grade, specialized space for junior high and high school students, a playground area, significant media space, and a café. The Texas-style design will utilize limestone and exposed wood to create a welcoming, comfortable environment for church goers. The 77-acre Cypress campus and 47-acre Cinco Ranch campus will allow room for future growth.
