The design program for Centro Familiar de Adoración called for a new worship center to be built in phases that could eventually seat 20,000. Pastors Emilio and Bethany Abreu wanted a space that was not just big and seated lots of people, but a space that would also allow intimate and personal worship at the same time. The fan shaped sanctuary with two wrap-around balconies allows 9,000 people to gather in a space with dynamic lighting and sound that allow for a creative and meaningful worship experience. The building also houses a second smaller 1,200 seat “chapel”, offices, classrooms, other required support spaces, and an inviting four story atrium/lobby. The building also houses a K-8 Christian School and is built over an 800 car parking garage. CFA is Paraguay’s largest church running well over 10,000 in weekly worship attendance.
