Emanuel Lisk Center


Project Plan




After nearly 20 years, the Friendship Baptist Church of Kansas City, Missouri is poised to make real our vision of a state-of-the-art space dedicated to Christian education for children and youth. The new one story, 7,750-square foot Emanuel Lisk Center for Youth Development will be designed to blend seamlessly with the brick exterior of our existing church.

The center will be readily accessible to the existing building through an enclosed hallway. The architect of record, Mantel Teter and general contractor, Kelly Construction Group continue to partner with the FBC Emanuel Lisk Project Committee to ensure the final product will meet the needs of Friendship’s vibrant congregation today and well into the future.


The Emanuel Lisk Center is slated to open in the fall of 2024.
