Historic Bull Street Baptist Church Undergoing Major Renovations

SAVANNAH, Ga. - Dec. 21, 2020 - PRLog -- (SAVANNAH, GA) With excitement, Bull Street Baptist Church announces the fruitful progress and final stages of a major renovation to their three interconnected historic buildings and parking lot located just south of Forsyth Park. The Church named this project "Beyond 2020," looking forward and envisioning the strategic opportunities for ministry beyond 2020 that will take place in these newly updated spaces.

Under the direction of Felder & Associates, a distinguished and award-winning architecture firm in Savannah, and together with Brooks Construction Group and Homes with Hart Construction, the final renovations of a twelve year, multi-phase master plan of the 200,000 square-foot campus is coming to completion.

"Over the past twelve years, the Church has been working to create outstanding spaces for our ministry. It is important to us that they not only be beautiful, but welcoming and safe," said Pastor Fowler. "When planning this redesign, we considered the needs of our entire congregation to make sure we are serving every age group, from our babies to our seniors. We wanted to honor the historic nature of both our congregation and our buildings, always trying to bring the old and the new together, and updating to serve the contemporary needs of a multi-generational congregation."

"We are really excited about the basement of the education building, where we are adding a dedicated space for our new urban outreach ministry called The HOPE Initiative," said Pastor Fowler. "Recording artist and gospel minister Harrold 'Zion' Edwards is taking the lead on this new ministry. The goal is to communicate the love of Christ through meeting pressing needs, while faithfully bringing the hope of the gospel to each person we encounter. Volunteer ministries such as ESL (English as a Second Language), GroceryShare, family mentoring, and more will operate out of the The Hope Initiative space. We also see opportunities to partner with local ministries and agencies by hosting workshops to address specific needs in our community."

"When we first met with Pastor Fowler and the building committee, it was clear their goal was to honor the building's rich history while we simultaneously create a beautiful and functional urban campus," said Gretchen Callejas, project architect at Felder & Associates. "We made every design choice with this goal in mind, and the finished product is going to be something the entire congregation can be proud of for years to come."
