The 10 acre United Methodist Center project was designed to house the episcopal, administrative, and conferencing activities of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Graham & Hyde designed the brick and textured precast concrete facility to accommodate a full office compliment for the Illinois Great Rivers Conference and so the facility can be easily expanded as needs grow.

In addition to office spaces, the 26,000 square foot building contains a conference center with four venues for meetings, worship, training, and education for various ministries and outreach. The facility ten-acre landscaped site in Springfield, Illinois also includes a reflecting pond and parking for 200 vehicles.
