Twin City Baptist, DJ Lock Arms on Phase Two Project
MISHAWAKA – June 10, 2015 – After the successful construction of a worship area that was completed in April of this year, DJ and Twin City Baptist are already embarking on an exciting Phase Two project.
This project involves the building of a new 11,700 sq. ft. family life center that will connect to Phase One facility. It consists of a multi-purpose room (fellowship and gymnasium), kitchen, restrooms, classrooms and a missionary apartment. Special attributes of the building are being included for Twin City’s Awana program.
The Phase Two building will replace an older structure that dates back to the 1950s and was previously added on to twice. It at one time included the church’s sanctuary that was later converted into a gymnasium space. Due to the nature of its past renovations, the existing building contains many floor levels with numerous stairways and ramps. The new structure will be all on grade level, thereby providing convenient handicapped accessible areas that can be used to host gatherings throughout the week, including Bible studies, Awana, and sports opportunities.
JC Schrock, vice president at DJ Construction, has partnered with Twin City’s Pastor Jerry Bell and others in the design and construction of the addition.
“I truly look forward to working with Twin City Baptist on this complimentary piece of their new church complex. We will be using essentially the same team of designers, suppliers and subcontractors that constructed Phase One. The first project was quite rewarding as we helped the Church replace their storm damaged sanctuary and now we get to do it again by replacing other accessory spaces. The completed complex will provide the Church with everything they currently need and also provide adequate space for future growth. The staff at DJ is pleased to be working with Twin City again and is excited about the opportunity of providing another Church with facilities to impact lives on a regular basis.”
This project is expected to begin as early as July 8.
