Asbury United Methodist Church - Tulsa, OK
Crafton Tull created a master plan for the Asbury United Methodist Church to address the needs of a growing congregation. With much of the financing coming from congregational fund-raising, our team designed the plan in phases to accommodate their timeline. The completed building is 300,000 square feet and boasts a sanctuary with seating for 2,500 and a chapel that can hold as many as 500 people. The “living room,” a casual worship space for contemporary worship, fellowship dinners, and wedding receptions, can seat up to 1,000. The facility also contains Christian education classrooms for all ages, a nursery, music rehearsal rooms, administrative offices, recreation and community ministry spaces, building maintenance areas, and other essential support spaces. As a nod to the history of the space where the congregation previously met, the new building incorporated English Country Gothic design elements.
