Crossland prides itself on helping to make dreams come true.
Even if that dream is three decades old. The new Pacesetter Church in Miami, Oklahoma, was first imagined by its founder Gordon Chirillo more than 30 years ago when he first spotted the land on which it was built.
“One day, we’re going to build a church there,” he said. Turns out that day was Jan. 4, 2022, the day Crossland officially broke ground on the new $3.3 million church. The 14,000 square foot facility features a sanctuary, kitchen, multipurpose rooms, and office spaces in the main church building. A separate, 8,000 SF building also houses a youth center, classrooms, and courts for volleyball and basketball.
The church’s exterior was built with reversed ribbed metal panels, efface, and horizontal panels. Interior features include a raised stage, sound booth, and kitchen. Weather was a major factor in this build, as starting in January meant working through winter conditions. Concrete often had to be covered with blankets to protect it while it was cured.
Spring brought warmer weather but also a lot of rain and tricky steel erection conditions.
Crossland’s ability to step in and self-perform concrete and steel kept this project on schedule and on budget when we encountered some subcontractor delays. The church was completed in September 2022, giving the community a new, beautiful space and much more room for its growing congregation.
