A while back, I wrote a post about redoing our missions gallery. The missions gallery is a funny story of how responsibility often gets assigned in an organization. If you bring it up as an issue that needs to be dealt with, you are usually tasked with the responsibility of fixing it. As you can see from the previous post of what the mission gallery used to be, it was something that needed to be done. It’s a prominent spot in our building, in between the two main entrances into the worship center. So naturally it needed to be something that looked nice and really displayed what we are all about. At Northwood Church, we are all about reaching the world around us, we are very globally minded. At the time of the project, I had just got back from a trip to Vietnam, so we had some great pictures to work with. We let the pictures speak for themselves, we printed them as large as we could, and the result was when people walk by, they can see a glimpse of what our church is about just by glancing at the area. We also designed it in such a way that when the pictures need a refresh it’s quite easy to put different pictures in. I never got around to posting a final picture of what it looked like, so here you go!
If I could change one thing, it would be the height of the bottom cedar planks. I would also prefer to vary the color of the wood from piece to piece, but the straight cedar color matches the rest of the building quite nicely.
