Master Plan

​The First Baptist Nashville Master Plan was adopted in February 2012 and will include major changes to our current campus. The 20-year plan could have as many as four phases and hopes to include a music venue, café space as well as fellowship and meeting rooms and a new recreation center.

Master Plan Implementation Committee

The purpose of the Master Plan Implementation Committee (MPIC) is to “determine the scope of construction for Phase One, to determine a financing plan that is appropriate for its completion, and to lead the congregation to adopt a recommendation for implementation.”



SEPTEMBER 2013—An updated building proposal was shown during the September business meeting. You can view it HERE.

JANUARY 2013—On January 16, 2013, MPIC recommended, and the church approved, that Earl Swenson and Associates (ESA) be named as the architectural firm for the new building.  ESA has a strong reputation for excellence in design and service.  They also have significant experience building in the downtown area, including SoBro.  ESA has also completed several church projects.  As the church proceeds in this process, ESA will be available to provide valuable expertise and guidance.
