Under the vision of Pastor Corbett, the Education/Administrative building is equipped with up-to-date state of the art technology. This building serves as a multi-faceted space that can handle a plethora of events, ranging from receptions to private meeting space to youth church. The Lundy Chapel gymnasium is a multi-purposed building that serves as an open space for many events held by the Lundy Chapel family, and surrounding communities. Collectively, under the leadership of Pastor Corbett, the Lundy Chapel campus covers over 37,000 square feet.

In November of 2017, Pastor Corbett revealed another part of "The Vision" God had given him - to renovate the current sanctuary to become a Worship Center that aesthetically matched the style of Worship Lundy Chapel had shifted to.
