Life Fellowship Church brings campus to McKinney this fall

Life Fellowship Church is coming to McKinney, and is currently constructing its new 19,000 square-foot church home in Craig Ranch. Located at 6400 Henneman Way, near 121 between Alma and Stacy roads, the church is set for an October completion.

Life Fellowship is an interdenominational church. Life Fellowship Church opened its doors in 2002 and in July of 2010 Pastor Chris Lindberg became the senior pastor. Since that time the church congregation has grown from 80 to more than 1,000.

“[McKinney] is centralized to where so many of our folks are coming from,” Lindberg said. “They are traveling from Anna, Plano, Frisco, Allen, Fairview and McKinney. Plus after working with other surrounding cities, the city of McKinney was hands down beyond welcoming, so professional and a delight to work with.”

Lindberg said the church's vision was to be in a easy-to-navigate location.

“We wanted to be positioned that all of the surrounding communities can find easy access to our campus for years and years to come,” he said. “We already have a strong culture of business leaders in the church, and we love the fact that the corporate center for McKinney is also in Craig Ranch. We have a vision to be a resource to build and grow godly leaders who will influence our local communities and places of commerce.”

According to a church officials, Architects 5G  designed the building, which officials said is expected to be one of the most innovative mid-sized church facilities in the nation.

The facility will include a spacious lobby and a cafe.

Each classroom environment has been designed to be an interactive experience with age appropriate teaching for every age group from ages six weeks to eighth grade. And, adults will utilize the 550-seat state-of-the-art auditorium on Sundays.
