Refiner's Fire Ministries International - Ennis, TX
Size: 6,500sq. ft.
Contract Type: Competitive Bid
Anticipated Completion Date: April 2010
McCarthy Architecture was selected to assist Refiners Fire in a renovation and addition project to a 1960’s era car dealership that they had purchased to serve as their new facility. The church had been meeting in the building for several years and had undertaken some interior renovations but had not substantially altered the exterior of the building. They were interested in creating an exterior that provided a greater identity as a church. A front façade employing stone and traditional liturgical icons was created to temper the metal building presentation to the street. New porte cocheres were added to the major entries and an expanded youth area was added to the facility.
