Our Work

Goff's Hopewell Baptist Church is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Through research and planning, the Foundation board determined that the building can be rehabilitated safely and successfully through readaptive space for public access and enjoyment as a vibrant community event center. 

Phase I of the project allowed for protection of the exterior from the elements and is nearly completed through the expertise, materials and resources of Jenco Roofing. The new roof is a near-perfect copy of the original as its original shingles are no longer available in the U.S. We are extremely proud of the work Jenco Roofing provided! Check out the before and after photos in our picture gallery. United Rentals  donated use of a crane to work on the 80-foot building, and Homestead Construction provided labor and materials to rebuild two flat roofs and entry walls.


Our thanks also go out to Stearman Construction who completely rebuilt the steeply-angled architectural feature on the north side, working from only a photograph of the original structure; and to Ron Moore Company who dontated two custom triangle glass panels to enclose the apex, and the trusses have been repainted. Oklahoma City's Boy Scout Troop 985 worked hard to clean up the ground floor demolition. We are grateful to these Scouts, and also for the generous donations of God's TP church congregation, Deer Creek and Edmond communities, and to many others for discounted materials and in-kind services. 

Earliest stages of Phase II redesign by Hans E. Butzer and the architectural firm of Butzer Architects and Urbanism (click
here for more about this announcement)  will include master planning, modeling and printed elevations to facilitate a feasibility study, market analysis and preparation of a business plan. Phase II will then expand the master plan and innovative design of the interior for adaptive reuse of this structure as an event center for community enjoyment and enrichment. With a goal to meet historic standards for rehabilitation in its adaptive reuse, the building will honor the history and legacy of Oklahoma, of Hopewell's origins and of Bruce Goff's unique organic architecture.



Stop by the corner of NW 178th and MacArthur to view our progress. It's the "Year of the TP!"
