TRUE VINE BAPTIST CHURCH
Residing in the
neighborhood of Heritage – the largest subdivision in San Antonio, TX – True
Vine Baptist Church faced the challenge of hosting many congregation members in
a small space. With a population of approximately 12,000, Heritage is a
community that experienced rapid growth and development, and has become a city
in itself. In order to respond to the increasing population and accommodate a
magnifying group of worshippers, True Vine needed to expand.
Instead of renovating or building upon their existing structure – which included a few classrooms, some offices, a small fellowship hall, and a sanctuary seating 200 – True Vine swelled their campus with a new worship facility constructed uphill to take advantage of site conditions that would offer spectacular vista views. Visible from just under a mile away along adjacent roads, the new 32,400 square foot worship facility houses a 1,300 seat sanctuary, a choir rehearsal room, a nursery, a counseling center and dedicated administration space. As a continually growing ministry, the new facility is designed with anticipation of expansion in mind. Future phases of construction will develop upon the new amenities even further with additional administration offices, educational spaces, a family life center, and a choir suite.
Having recently celebrated their 20-year anniversary in April 2012, the True Vine family continues to grow, and gains 35 new members each month.
