Shepherd’s Gate

San Antonio, Texas

Deep on San Antonio’s Southside, Shepherd’s Gate United Methodist had not been remodeled in decades – perhaps never. It serves a small, but dedicated community, so no one ever really noticed out out-of-date the church had become. Then high winds and hail struck the church, tearing holes in the roof and soaking the vintage 80s track-style acoustic ceiling.

The original material wasn’t available, so JF&A followed one of our most important policies: “if you can’t make it the same, make it better.” We tore out the whole ceiling system and replaced it with drywall. We added trim to the coffers, delivering a beautiful finished product.
