Stafford Crossing Community Church’s pastor is a self-proclaimed “sports junkie.” Providing recreational space for the community is a vital part of the church’s outreach. In addition, the site included historically significant archeological remains from Civil War encampments and a cemetery. Public access to these cultural resources needed to be maintained even as we planned for full accommodation of the church’s master plan. Blue Ridge Architects completed the master plan and assisted the church in obtaining the special use permit necessary to launch the first phase of construction.
