In exploring a vision for the future, MTFA, along with members of the church, produced a master plan that addressed the stewardship goals of the highest and best land use.

The approved master plan includes a full renovation of the sanctuary, the replacement of an aging educational building with a new mixed use center that will increase office, classroom, outreach, and meeting space by over 300% with an addition of a community gymnasium and memorial garden.

This new program space will be financed by the development of residential condominiums to be located over the existing parking lot, relocating the required parking for the church and future
condominiums underground.
