Church of the Resurrection
Property Update: May 2023
Planning continues to move forward on the Church of Resurrection's partnership with Cross Timbers YMCA to re-develop the YMCA property. The re-development of the property will allow Church of the Resurrection to build church facilities such as a sanctuary and a parish hall on a portion of the property, while also partnering with the YMCA to share property resources such as parking, a water retention pond, and utility infrastructure.
A building project team has been established to assist with the re-development and building plans. This team is composed of members with strategic expertise:
Logan Adcock, Construction Attorney April Gilley, Project Management
Vicky Gunning, Corporate Attorney
Jon Malden, Corporate Banker
Dean Moyer, Church Leadership
David Smith, Church Leadership
David Stocker, Architect
Steve Westbrook, Commercial Contractor
Action items recently completed:
Closed on the sale of the church's Shady Oaks property in January.
Established monthly meetings with leaders from the YMCA to facilitate the joint planning for the property.
Completed a site survey of the YMCA property.
Action items currently in progress:
Establishing project sub-teams
Drafting legal documents to review with the YMCA
Research considerations for church design (community needs, future growth, etc.)
Reviewing initial considerations with the church leadership council
A key area of focus in the coming months will be working out terms with the YMCA.
The project team will continue to meet twice a month to discuss progress, identify action items and lay out next steps. Key areas of focus in the coming months are working out the location of the YMCA'S facilities and the separate church building, construction phasing, cost sharing and other terms with the YMCA. As progress is made the project team will continue to provide regular updates to the parish. If you have any questions about the project, you can reach out to April Gilley (email@example.com) or any member of the project team.
