Easing the Building Process for Crosshaven Baptist Church
Planning for a new church can be difficult, especially with budget and time challenges. And this was what Jason Murphree, Pastor of Crosshaven Church in Hanceville, Alabama was expecting as well when deciding to build a two-story sanctuary and worship center with additional space for its youth and children’s ministry.
“We knew that we had budget limitations and we knew that we had to build a metal building and we were under a time restraint, we had to be in by a certain date,” said Pastor Murphree.
Working together with his sales consultant and the Morton designBUILD team, they utilized a proven project delivery system to ensure the project was delivered smoothly.
“They had all the people in place to make that happen for us, they were able to get us the information we needed, we were able to communicate with them, tell them this is what we’re looking for and they would do that,” he said. “They helped us with building plans and helped us find the right plan for us. We sat down several times and we tweaked things and we changed things and we were able to get exactly what we needed. And that process worked out very well, we worked hand in hand with the sales rep and even with architects.”
When planning for a place where his congregation could worship and grow, Pastor Murphree knew the exterior look of the building was a vital part of that plan. He was pleasantly surprised to discover the versatility in design that Morton could offer.
“When we built this building, the first building we knew we wanted a building that was attractive--something that was eye catching, something that people would look at and say hey, I might want to visit that church because it looks good on the outside. As we explored what different companies had to offer, we realized that Morton Buildings could build us a metal building that didn’t look like a box. We were excited about that, as you look at our facility you’ll notice it’s very attractive and fits our area.”
