Eagle Brook Church
Eagle Brook Church (EBC) and BWBR partnered to renovate the former River City Baptist Church in downtown Minneapolis. EBC selected this site as an opportunity to be in the lively downtown area and to keep the property in the church community.
Originally built in 1885 with significant additions over the past century, the existing structure creates an opportunity for reinvigorating some historical elements while introducing EBC’s modern worship philosophy, branding, and design. The interior lobby will be reconfigured for more open access to the worship space and lower-level amenities, such as a café with room for gathering. The children’s education wing will be home to large and small age-appropriate gathering and worship spaces.
The main auditorium, including an expanded platform and renovated balcony, will be fitted with a modern projection, sound, and light system. State-of-the-art audio-visual controls and equipment will enhance the shared EBC experience.
