Our Church property and buildings are the home base for our family. For 147 
years the people of God at First Baptist Church, Tupelo, MS (FBCT) have  
gathered each week in this building to worship the Lord, teach various age 
groups the Word of God, disciple followers of Christ and reach out to those in 
our community that are searching for truth in a world filled with hopelessness. 

 

The building is much like your home where your family gathers daily and from 
time-to-time for special occasions. In the past, many have sacrificed so that we 
may enjoy the building that occupies the corner of 300 North Church Street  
today. We honor the investments and the service of these generations of  
believers. 

 

Some in our congregation remember when various parts of our current facility 
were constructed. In the 1950’s, a devastating fire destroyed the Sanctuary 
building; the church rose from the ashes to rebuild so ministry could continue 
and people could gather for worship. Others remember the 1960’s when the  
current children’s building was constructed, which provided additional space for 
discipling believers. In the 1970’s, a great outreach ministry was started as the 
result of constructing the Christian Life Center. FBCT has continued with a  
vision to provide a place of worship and ministry to her members and  
community. Each time the need arose to provide additional space, the  
congregation sought the Lord and made sacrificial commitments to building 
under the Lord’s leadership. 

 

The most recent construction projects took place in the mid 1980’s and 1990’s 
with the construction of the Adult Education/Office building and the Fellowship 
Hall, Grand Hall, Preschool and Youth building at a combined total cost of $6.3  
million. These buildings were constructed under the leadership of Dr. Gayle  
Alexander, Pastor from 1983-2000, who challenged the church to build without 
debt. The congregation accepted the challenge; and under the Lord’s  
Leadership, the church was able to build two buildings without incurring long-
term debt. 

 

During the last twenty years, FBCT has been able to grow Her ministry  
because of those who gave sacrificially to build without debt. These years have 
proven to be a time when the church has taken great strides in mission  
outreach.  This growth in ministry was possible because the church was not  
burdened with debt; the tithes and offerings could be used to reach and teach 
those who have yet to hear the gospel of Christ.   

 

The church body has always sought to build for those yet to come. In many 
ways, this is evident in our current facility with the physical plant we have for 
ministry. The time has come to take the next step in preparing for the future 
through expansion and much needed renovations to our church home.  The  
challenge now is for each one in the church family to continue the legacy of 
faithful stewardship to prepare for the future.  Members must prayerfully seek 
the Lord and ask Him to lead us individually and as families as to what He 
would have us give over the next three to five years to help provide the  
resources needed in the proposed renovations and expansion of the church 
campus.

 

 

 
 

First Baptist Church of Tupelo, Mississippi Capital Campaign 2017 

 

Church Family, 
 
Thank  you  for  participating  in  today’s 
service.  The  desire  of  our  church 
leadership is to share with you how the 
Lord  has  been  leading  these  past 
months.  The  presentation  you  are 
holding  in  your  hand  should  not  be 
considered  as  “set  in  stone.”  Rather,  it 
is a concept of how we could maximize 
our  space  and  structure  in  a  strategy 
and  building  layout  that  best  meets 
current  ministry  needs  as  well  as 
prepares  for  the  future.  We  ask  that 
you  not  hesitate  to  ask  questions  
or  provide  commentary.  Tonight  we  
will  have  a  Special  Called  Business 
Meeting to provide a venue to facilitate  
a  church-wide  question  and  answer 
time.  
 
We  know  that  the  “church”  is  not  a 
building  (whether  in  the  past,  present, 
or  future).  However,  throughout  our 
church’s  rich  history,  we  have  seen 
God  use  our  buildings  as  a  tool  for 
ministry  and  missions.  Desiring  to  be 
good stewards of what the Lord has so 
graciously  entrusted  to  First  Baptist 
Church  of  Tupelo,  we  believe  these 
proposed  changes  are  consistent  with 
the faithfulness and vision of those who 
have gone before us here at the corner 
of Jefferson and Church Streets. 
 
Please  pray  for  our  church  over  the 
next  few  weeks  as  we  consider  these 
changes.  With  confidence,  we  know 
that  God  has  used,  is  using,  and  
desires to use this body of believers.  
 
What He Begins… He Finishes!

THE PROCESS THAT BROUGHT FBC TO TODAY 

 

Work on the proposed concepts shared April 23, 2017, began almost twelve years ago when the church entertained a 
study by Lifeway Church Architect Department about how we could maximize space with the footprint of the current  
property at that time. Moving forward at that point was not in God’s timing.  Discussions have continued, however, and 
through many meetings of the Strategic Planning Committee, Properties Committees, Stewardship Committees and  
Deacons, and through personal discussions and other venues, the church has sought the proper timing to expand in 
downtown Tupelo. 
 
The operating budget of the church provides between $50,000.00 and $70,000.00 each year for capital improvements. 
The funds placed in this savings account provide funding for major capital needs during the year, or funds are  
accumulated for major repair work in the future. Over the last eight years, the Capital Improvement Budget, along with a 
$300,000 Capital Campaign has provided resources for the following work as approved by the church: 
  Replacement of the heating and cooling system in the Christian Life Center-$35,000.00 
  Replacement of the roof on the Grand Hall/Fellowship Hall/Youth/Preschool building - $82,000.00 
  Replacement of the heating and cooling system in the Children’s Area - $10,000.00 
  Replacement of the heating system in the Sanctuary - $17,000.00 
  Demolition of the Whitfield House - $23,000.00 
  Surveying and engineering preparation of parking lot renovations - $8,000.00 
  Replacement of several heating and cooling units (other than those listed) - $20,000.00 
  Renovation of the Preschool Area - $55,000.00 
  Tree removal and renovation of sound and media equipment in the Fellowship Hall and Sanctuary - $65,000.00 
  Renovation of the Grand Hall and Fellowship Hall, repainting of the second floor area, replacement of carpet in the  

second floor area and a renovated main office entrance - $300,000 

 

The insight of the church to provide a Capital Savings Fund, along with the one Capital Campaign, has proven beneficial 
through the years. The funds have provided $615,000.00 for the maintenance and upkeep of the church facility without 
placing a strain on the church budget or membership. However, current expansion and renovation needs exceed the  
capacity of the Capital Savings Fund.

In late October 2016, the church staff contacted Church Interiors, the premier church consulting firm for churches with 
current facilities needing renovation and expansion evaluations. The committee asked about ways to increase the  
seating capacity of the Sanctuary, along with an overall evaluation of Preschool, Children and Youth areas. The call led 
to the opportunity, with the approval of the Properties and Stewardship Committees, to engage Church Interiors in a  
process that would provide an overall evaluation of the church facilities to determine possible options and concepts for 
improved and additional space for parking, Preschool, Children, Youth and Sanctuary seating. The Lord  
provided this opportunity at an initial cost of less than one-half of the normal cost of $8,000. The Properties and  
Stewardship Committees agreed for an initial concept evaluation cost of $3,500.00 for the work from Church Interiors.   

 

Church Interiors returned in late December 2016 with a proposed concept like the one presented to the church body  
on April 23, 2017.  During the time Church Interiors was assessing our current facility, the Properties Committee  
continued to evaluate the most pressing need - the development of additional parking, along with an overlay of the  
existing parking lot.  

 

The Need for Additional Parking 

 

The current parking at FBCT provides approximately 294 parking spaces with no approved ADA handicapped parking 
currently available. Approximately four years ago, the church had an initial plan developed by ESI Engineering Firm of 
Tupelo, which determined that the west parking lot nearest the Main Office entrance could be reconstructed to provide 
easier access to the building by reducing the grade of the slope in the parking lot, including the development of the grass 
area due west of the church.  Since the parking study four years ago, the church has acquired additional property due 
west of the back parking lot, as well as property due north of the church that should be included in the proposed parking 
lot renovation. Without full design work on the proposed parking areas, initial estimates indicate the possibility of 550-600 
parking spaces. 

I am excited about how this concept brings our church together.  These changes allow both the people here and those God 

wants us to reach: room to park, an environment to grow, and a place to worship and experience God’s love and truth.

The Need for Additional Space in the Building 

 

Several ministries of the church are out of space. The three areas in critical need of space are the Preschool Ministry, 
the Children’s Ministry and the Student Ministry. In addition to the education space needs, two other areas were  
identified: a recognizable main point of entry into the building and the expansion of the seating capacity in the Sanctuary. 
Note: Capacity of age group areas is based on industry recommended square footage.  

 

The Preschool Ministry Area - 35 square feet per child 

 

This area built in the most recent 1996 addition has reached its capacity. The current capacity of the Preschool 
area is 100 children; the current average attendance is 94. Current space does not provide room for additional 
growth at this time for the necessary square feet per child.  

 

The Children’s Ministry Area - 35 square feet per child 

 

The current Children’s area was constructed in 1966 and renovated in 1986. Current capacity for the Children’s 
area is 90; the current average attendance on Sunday is 85. In addition, the children do not have a  
location other than the Fellowship Hall for large group meetings and activities. 

 

The Student Ministry Area - 25 square feet per student 

 

The current Student Ministry area was constructed in 1996 with a capacity of 95 students. The current average 
attendance on Sunday is 75, and on Wednesday nights between 80-100 meet in a large group space  
designed for 70 students.  

 

The Identifying Main Point of Entry 

 

During the meetings over the last several months, many members recalled their first visit to FBCT and the  
question of where to enter the building. The building currently provides twenty-one different access points. The 
identifying common entry point for many churches is the front steps; however, twenty-one front steps are not the 
best option for entering the building as identified by the 1984 Strategic Planning team. This discussion led Church 
Interiors to include an atrium concept as a common point of entry.  

 

The Increased Seating Capacity of the Sanctuary 

 

The current Sanctuary has a seating capacity of 400 people, including floor and balcony seating. Church growth  
studies indicate capacity is approximately 80% of seating capacity, which gives the current Sanctuary a capacity  
of 320 people on any given Sunday. Other limiting factors impacting our current Sanctuary include limited  
ingress and egress, as well as a small foyer for those entering or leaving the sanctuary.  

 

BRINGING THE STRATEGIC PLANNING COMMITTEE  
AND CHURCH INTERIORS CONCEPTS TOGETHER 

 

The proposed concepts presented by Church Interiors enables the church to move towards the year 2020 with a plan  
to accomplish the goals and directions recommended by the Strategic Planning team and embraced by the Stewardship 
and Properties Committees. The work is proposed in two phases.

Parking Lot Renovation/Expansion  

 

The current main parking lot will be renovated in its entirety and 
expanded to full capacity on adjacent property owned by the 
church. Renovations will include the following: 

  Milling and overlay of the east side parking lot, the  

parking area north of the playground and the lower back 
parking lot.

 

  Removal and complete overhaul of the west side  

parking lot from the Fellowship Hall to Jefferson Street. 

 

West side of parking lot—Whitfield House area 

5  

  Removal of the existing asphalt surface, followed by 

extensive dirt work to lower the grade on the west side 
and include the green space where the Whitfield house 
once stood. The renovations to this area will provide 
handicapped parking which meets ADA code and  
provides better access to the building for those with 
mobility limitations.  

  Development of parking on the west and north property 

currently owned by the church. The development of 
these two areas will depend on city code and city  
drainage requirements. 

  Installation of new and expanded LED lighting  

throughout all parking areas owned by the church. 

  Installation of new and additional landscaping and  

irrigation as required by city code across the new  
parking areas. 

  Installation of new landscape on the south side 

(Jefferson Street) of the church property. 

  Installation of new exterior directional signage.  
  Construction of a fenced, covered parking area for 

church vehicles and utility trailers. 

 

Renovation of Adult Education Space (1 F Floor) 

 

The Space utilized for Adult Grow Group classes, ESL and Choir 
Suite area will undergo a major renovation for the first time since 
being built in 1986. Work in this area will include the following: 

  New LED lighting throughout the area. 
  New ceiling tile. 
  New painting throughout the Adult area. 
  Creation of a new corridor where the current prayer 

room is located. Prayer room will be relocated to a  
location yet to be determined. 

  New floor covering. 
  New matching seating - some with arm rests and  

without arm rests. 

  New wooden-slat blinds for the classrooms. 
  Renovation of the restrooms located behind the Choir 

Room. 

  Installation of multimedia in classrooms where the need 

is identified.

It is awesome to see how God can put His plan in place.  

From discussions I've personally witnessed to our meetings  

with Church Interiors, the pieces just keep landing in place. 

Ideas are brought forth by one committee with no knowledge 

that the same ideas are being pursued by another committee.  

God's plan will happen as long as we have faith!  

My faith in Him has never let me down, so why should  

I think it will start now!

Preschool Area 

 

 

The current Preschool space constructed in 1996 has  
provided many years of ministry but with great limitations. 
When the area was constructed, few churches had ever 
considered that future generations would have secure 
locked areas for Preschool Ministries.  

  Fifteen years ago this need became a reality; 

therefore, a main north-south corridor was 
locked, limiting access with good flow throughout 
the building. 

  The current space is designed for a capacity of 

100. Our current average Sunday attendance  
is 94.  

  The current space is not equipped to handle the 

many needs now required in Preschool Ministry; 
nor was the space designed for a full-time Day 
School Ministry with an enrollment of 140 plus 
children. 

  Storage space is extremely limited.

  The proposed concept is to build a modern  

state-of-the-art Preschool area in the 1R building. This area would be on the backside of the new Atrium and 
would extend east to the handicapped parking area on the east side of the building to the point where the  
sidewalk currently comes in front of the Grand Hall entrance.  

  The current Preschool area would be repurposed to house adult classes, an indoor play area, teacher  

resource/preparation rooms, and possibly a large group Preschool meeting space. 

Preschool Area 

As a preschool teacher and extended session worker, I am  

very excited about these proposed changes. These plans will 

provide an adequately designed, safe and secure space that 

will be large enough to accommodate growth that our  

current setup can't support.

Children’s Area Renovations (2R Floor) 

 

 

The current Children’s area was constructed in 1966 and  
provides space for 90 children. Current average attendance on 
Sunday is 85. 

  The proposed concept will provide additional space 

for children along with a large group meeting space. 

  The area will provide a main check point in the  

Children’s Area, along with security enhancements.  

  The main hallway passage from the upper foyer to 

the Sanctuary will be accessible during church-wide  
worship and event times.  At other times the area will 
be secured. 

 

 

Student Ministry Area (3rd Floor) 

The current Student Ministry area was constructed  
in 1996 with a capacity of 95 students.  The current  
average attendance on Sunday is 75, and  
Wednesday nights between 80-100 in a large group 
space designed for 70 students. 
  The current Student Ministry area will become 

Adult Grow Group space in the proposed  
concept.  

  The proposed concept provides a new third-floor 

addition to the current Children’s Building to 
house the new and expanded Student Ministry 
area.  

  The current area utilized by the students was 

constructed in 1996. Space limitations currently 
exist in the area.  

  A Feasibility Study will determine if an addition  

of this size can be achieved and the cost  
effectiveness of such an addition.

Student Ministry Relocation 

Our church has been blessed with a growing number of young 

families. I’m so excited about the new direction the Lord has 

placed before us! I believe it will create an atmosphere that 

will greater support and serve our young families!

Education Building - Office/Library/Conference Rooms 
(2nd Floor) 

 

  An enlarged foyer with a common informational area 

will be included in the area now occupied by the Library 
and center rooms on second floor.  

  An enlarged Foyer and Commons area will provide 

much improved ingress and egress from the Sanctuary 
area. 

  A quiet area with a glass foyer will separate the  

Sanctuary area from the Commons area. 

  Renovated and enlarged restrooms will be installed. 
  A bridal dressing area will be included.  
  Corridor renovation on the second floor will provide 

open flow from the newly constructed Atrium to the 
Sanctuary, as well as open access from the Sanctuary 
to the Fellowship Hall.  

  A second elevator will be installed in the area next to 

the steps on the west end of the Educational Building, 
providing additional access for the increased traffic. 

  A pastoral greeting/ worship counseling area will be 

provided. 

  The Library and some offices will be moved to an area 

yet to be determined. One possibility is transforming  
the Library into a bookstore-style area where church 
members can have easy access to the latest Christian 
reading, discipleship material, CDs and DVDs of  
services and sermons.  

 

Sanctuary Expansion/Renovation 

 

The current Sanctuary was built following the devastating fire in 
November 1950. Through the years the Sanctuary has  
undergone many renovations to meet the needs of the  
congregationThe proposed concept includes renovations to 
meet current and future needs to continue being a lighthouse 
from the corner of Church and Jefferson Street. 

  The seating capacity of the Sanctuary will be increased 

from the current 400 to 729.  This provides true seats 
by providing theatre-style seating on the main floor and 
in the balcony.  

  All lighting in the Sanctuary will be replaced with more 

energy-efficient lighting. Current lighting is proving 
more challenging as regulations eliminate the  
production of bulbs currently used in the Sanctuary .  

  The 67-year-old baptistery will be replaced.  It has been 

patched almost beyond repair. The current  heating, 
plumbing and material used in construction are well 
beyond life expectancy. 

  The  HVAC will be replaced with a more energy  

efficient system.  The current system is inadequate and 
aging. Heating and cooling the building is challenging 
and costly. The proposed renovation will be all inclusive 
renovations--heating, baptistery, stage, sound system, 
flooring, HVAC and lighting. 

 

Office/Library/Conference Rooms 

Sanctuary - Bottom Floor 

Sanctuary - Balcony  

I think the main thing I’m most excited about is selecting the  

service we want to attend versus attending where our class we  

teach attends.  We will be able to reunite our youth group and  

have solid leadership for each grade if we all are in Grow Groups  

at the same hour. We also will attract young families that are   

the future of FBCT.

I am excited that this project will  

provide greater opportunity for all age 

groups to worship together.    

Fellowship is vital for unity within 

 the church body and serves as a  

powerful witness to seekers of  

Christ’s redeeming love!

unity to let the world know that  

You sent Me …”  John 17:23
