The new sanctuary will offer expanded seating capacity and the modern amenities to facilitate growth.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of a $4,000,000 Series 2016 financing for Bethel Baptist Church of Hampton, Virginia, a new client to Ziegler.
Bethel Baptist Church began in 1968 and moved to its current church campus in 1971. An educational wing was added in 1973 to accommodate a new elementary Christian school in the fall of that year. Bethel Christian School is now in its 43rd year of operation and currently offers preschool through 12th grade instruction.
Proceeds of the 2016 Series Bonds will be used to raze the existing 250-seat chapel located on the church campus and construct an approximately 12,123 square foot sanctuary building on the footprint of the chapel to be razed and removed. The new sanctuary will have a commons area for gathering and will feature a main floor seating capacity of 530 and a balcony area that will be used by the music ministry but may ultimately be finished to accommodate an additional 120 people for worship. The new sanctuary will be connected to the existing buildings located on the church campus.
Steve Hron, Director of Ziegler’s religion finance practice, stated, “The new sanctuary will offer expanded seating capacity and the modern amenities to facilitate growth.”
“This new facility will enable us to expand outreach into our local community. We are thankful for Ziegler providing the financing needed for this exciting project,” commented, Church Administrator Jeffrey Houck.
