Recognizing a need to serve the youth of the community, East Side Baptist Church constructed a 25,000-square-foot youth outreach building to provide a safe environment for after-school activities to students as well as providing additional space for the church's existing ministry programs. The Center is located near an elementary school and a junior high school and is also adjacent to a branch of the Fort Smith Public Library. The Center was constructed on the south end of the church's property and away from the existing buildings on campus in order for the building to retain its own image, separate from the other buildings on campus.

The program called for an auditorium space to accommodate 400 people in addition to a basketball court, which can be converted to a multi-purpose space seating 200 people at tables with chairs, a 26-foot-high indoor climbing wall, full service kitchen, electronic games area, an Internet café, full service snack bar, outdoor dining area, and an administrative office area. The exterior design was chosen to provide a contrast to the existing buildings on campus. Materials include utility-sized brick veneer, composite aluminum panels, metal wall panels, curtain wall framing with tinted, low E glass, and cementitious wall panels. The interior design pallet consists of stained, polished concrete floors, painted exposed structure, bright painted colors and bold wall graphics.
