Elevation Church Lake Norman Cornelius

Cornelius, NC

This new 41,600 SF church transformed a former cineplex in Cornelius, NC into a state-of-the-art worship center for its growing congregation.  As the anchor tenant for this revitalized development, the design re-energizes an underutilized facility, providing community space to engage the Cornelius and wider Lake Norman community.

The new church features a 1,200 seat auditorium with integrated audio/visual technology, and two 150 seat Children’s Theaters. The auditorium is the largest of its kind in the area, and will be available for community use outside of worship services. Elevation, founded in 2006, now occupies its 10th location as one of the fastest-growing churches in the United States.
