Stacy Cox - Studio Four Design

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. September 15, 2016 – Stacy Cox, architect and design expert and principal of Studio Four Design, a top architecture and design firm based in Knoxville, Tennessee that specializes in worship facilities, will speak at WFX, Worship Facilities Conference and Expo, at the Kentucky Exposition Center, on September 21-22, 2016.

Cox will be presenting “Design Matters! How Design Can Influence Your Ministry” on Wednesday, September 21 at 4:30 p.m., in room SWB107. He will share how to identify and assess some of the barriers current worship facilities may have and how to transform and enhance a church’s platform for ministry.

“Design has a huge impact on every aspect of your ministry,” said Stacy Cox, president of Studio Four Design. “The ability of your facility to communicate your church’s unique brand, message and culture is important to the community you serve. Your environment can either support your ministry objectives, or it can limit them. I hope that by sharing some of the knowledge I’ve collected for more than 20 years will help church leaders understand what they can do to improve their overall experience. From small renovations to campus expansions, every aspect of your facilities has the ability to enhance your ministry.”

Cox’s professional experience includes more than 20 years in architecture and design, with a church facility portfolio that ranges from master planning and small renovations up to new construction projects in excess of $5 million. Along with his role as president and managing partner of Studio Four Design, Cox is actively involved in his local church and with several ministries in Haiti.

Joining Cox in delivering the presentation will be Bobby Thompson, student pastor at Knoxville’s Grace Baptist Church and a Louisville, Kentucky native.

“The church overall is aging and there’s a struggle today to get younger people involved,” said Thompson. “We don’t want our buildings to be unwelcoming or a distraction, but instead an environment that is inviting and inclusive to the younger generation, because those are the leaders of tomorrow.”

The Worship Facilities Conference and Expo (WFX) is two and half days of education, hands-on training, networking, inspiration and exposure for every ministry team, including worship, tech, facilities and administration. It is the largest dedicated church expo in the United States, with opportunities to research and discuss hundreds of products and services all in one place.

Studio Four Design Selected for New OneLife Church Renovation

Leading architectural design firm helps Knoxville church renovate newest campus

Studio Four Design - OneLife Church Rendering

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. September 8, 2016 – Studio Four Design, a top architecture and design firm, has developed plans for the renovation of the new OneLife Church campus, located at the entrance of the Knoxville Center mall.

Formerly a Just for Feet building, the 19,000 square foot facility sat vacant for 12 years before finally being purchased this month by OneLife Church.

“We saw a great opportunity with this location to bring new life within this area,” said Pastor Rodney Arnold, founding and leading pastor of OneLife Church. “The community has been overwhelmingly positive about the purchase, and we’re excited to be able to lend our hand in helping revitalize this part of Knoxville.”

OneLife Church currently has two Knoxville campuses, one in Powell and the other in Halls that Studio Four Design has provided design services for.

“We came back to Studio Four Design for this project because of what we saw in them two years ago on a similar project,” said Arnold. “They have an understanding of doing what we, the client, need and want rather than pushing their own agenda. At the same time, they do it in a way that brings creativity and fresh ideas while understanding the budget restraints and unique vision and mission we have as a church.”

Because of their growth over the past few years, the OneLife Church Halls campus will be relocated to the new Knoxville Center location.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with OneLife Church as they grow and serve the communities they are located in throughout Knox County,” said Stacy Cox, president of Studio Four Design. “This new north campus won’t be just for worship services, as the goal for this facility is to be a unique resource for the entire community. We had to keep in mind how we could best utilize the space to allow for mixed use as well as meet the church’s goals for design, schedule and budget. The experience that OneLife Church offers through their ministries is consistent from location to location, and it has been an exciting opportunity for us to help them promote their brand across their campus facilities.”

Renovations on the Knoxville Center campus are expected to start immediately with an anticipated grand opening date set in December. The church is also in the early planning stages for a future West Knoxville campus.
