Abilene Baptist Church commissioned Studio 3 Design Group to help them develop a Master Plan for their new campus on the west side of Columbia County. This new campus will serve as a satellite to their current main campus on the east side of Columbia County. The new 62 acre campus will be developed in phases. The first phase will consist of a multi-purpose facility for worship and Christian education. Future facilities include a new 1,000 seat sanctuary, new administrative offices, additional Christian education space, and a central atrium for regular gathering and special events. Site improvements include a walking trail, multi-purpose ball field, and a small amphitheater that overlooks an existing pond on the site. The plan includes 2 entrances/exits for better accessibility, and surface parking expanded as the campus grows. Initial development of the land is planned to begin in 2021-2022.
