The Crown of Life Lutheran Church and School project in Hubertus, Wisconsin, consisted of adding 28,000 square feet to their existing building, an addition that included a new sanctuary, fellowship hall, and a new classroom.
The project took full advantage of Catalyst’s Time & Talent program and was able to engage a substantial group of volunteers that logged between 10,000-15,000 total man hours. Builders for Christ came onboard and helped throughout the construction phase and did the majority of the rough carpentry, roofing, siding, window install, and finish carpentry.
Because of the level of volunteer help on the project, Catalyst ended up changing the structural framing system design from a traditional system to a wood framing system for the addition and the church sanctuary as a means of maximizing volunteerism and cost savings for the ministry. This, combined with in-kind volunteer donations, allowed for approximately $1.5M in additional building and renovation work to be done over what was originally planned.
