Lancaster Bible College – Good Shepherd Chapel

Good Shepherd Chapel is located at the center of the Lancaster Bible College campus and is the location for chapel services, concerts, conferences, convocation, commencement and classes. Horst was involved in the initial planning stages to provide critical budgeting and constructability expertise for the 53,200 sf, two-story performance hall that includes seating for 1,200 people on the first floor and seating for 500 people in the balcony area. The building also includes an office suite, board room, and three classrooms. Seven years later, it was time for a renovation to enhance their technology, expand seating, and provide additional classroom space.
