A stunning new worship facility for the Word Of Life Church, featuring a state-of-the-art sanctuary and a wide range of amenities for its congregation, was completed in 2011 with the aid of metal systems from Varco Pruden Buildings.
To simply label the Flowood, Mississippi facility as a church may be a bit misleading, as it offers so much more. Word Of Life’s sanctuary has 800 theater seats and three multi-media screens, in addition to a large cafe with a three-sided fireplace, a spacious lobby area (including a two-story rotunda), a welcome station, nurseries, a youth auditorium, offices, an outdoor playground, a patio that is attached to the cafe, a nursing mothers’ room, and a children’s auditorium. The exterior includes three towers and two covered porte cocheres.
Varco Pruden’s Rigid Frame metal building systems were a key element in the church’s construction. Two Varco Pruden roof profiles are also featured on this project: SSR standing seam panels and SLR architectural standing seam panels. Varco Pruden’s Panel Rib profile was utilized for the exterior wall cladding, covered by exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS), accented by masonry.
The Varco Pruden Builder was Daniels & Daniels Construction Inc. of Broken Arrow, OK. The Designer was Triarch LLC of Tulsa, OK.
