Hope Community Church of Niles, Michigan and Ancon recently held a groundbreaking celebration to commence a major building expansion at their existing campus on Lake Street.  Project Manager Doug VonGunten and Field Superintendent Chris Cormican will oversee the project which will be complete in December. 

The project, designed by Ancon, features a 15,000 sqft sanctuary and commons addition and a 2,500 sqft addition featuring three classrooms.  “Great things are happening at Hope Church and this project responds to their growing ministry, activities, outreach, and increasing membership,” explained Ancon representative Matt VanSoest.  “The Ancon Design-Build team takes a unique approach when partnering with churches.  We understand the congregation’s core values, mission, and goals, we shape the project around current and future ministry needs, and we create solutions to ministry challenges.  This approach has worked extremely well with our partners in Christ here at Hope,” added VanSoest.
