Mega Church Bethel

Bethel is one of the fastest growing mega churches in the Netherlands. In 2007 the leadership of this church decided it was necessary to move the activities to another, bigger, church facility. They asked my vision on a new building for this mega church.

The main auditorium has to seat 3000 people. This will make it, by far, the largest auditorium ever built in the Netherlands. Because the Netherlands doesn’t have auditoriums this size, I had to study many large theaters around the world. The church also needs a second auditorium seating 1000 people. Furthermore there are about 40 classrooms for children’s education. Part of the building is dedicated to the full-time employees, which will grow to some 40 people. Last but not least, a restaurant-like hall, seating over 900 people, is included.
