The neighborhood church had become a regional destination and needed to significantly expand to meet demand. They decided to build at a new location in the early 2000’s, and hired Hutton for the work. “The bottom line is we were looking for someone we could trust,” said Larry Wren, executive pastor for the church.
A GOOD MARRIAGE
Using the construction management at-risk method, Hutton built a 41,835-square-foot building for the church on 36 acres – then added on to the building just a few years later. Then, in 2015, the church branched out and built a satellite campus in nearby Goddard. The partnership has worked well. “We liked the idea of marrying the architect and contractor,” said Wren. “It brought so much creativity to the project and allowed our team to figure out problems together.”
“Everyone we worked with really cared about what we were doing, and that always means a lot.”

The projects have served the church well, Wren said, and the process was smooth throughout. “All along the way, Hutton has been willing to build what we wanted,” said Wren. “Everyone we worked with really cared about what we were doing, and that always means a lot.”
