JTAI lead the revitalization and transformation of a 50-year old Baptist church in downtown Royal Oak, Michigan. A unique aspect of the project was that it involved two, vastly different congregations. The 170-year old Baptist Church and the 7-year old growing Gen-Y church realized the similarities in their missional cultures and became one congregation. The Phase 1 project included removing the majority of small rooms on the first floor to create a spacious and vibrant lobby/café that reflects the edgy, modern urban architecture prevalent in Royal Oak.
