Partnering with you to Impact Lubbock beyond your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is your special day but what if you could have an incredible wedding and give back to the Lubbock community at the same time? At the Bus Event Center you can do just that. Our venue is an amazing place to put on a top-notch wedding, party, or other event and as a ministry of Experience Life all proceeds go directly to fund the church's mission. This mission focuses on working to bring full transformation for individuals in and coming out of the jails. This includes working to help find and create sustainable jobs, finding quality housing, and attempting to change unhealthy patterns of living. The revenue from your event will help fund ongoing efforts to serve the Lubbock community through Experience Life. By choosing to host your event here, you will also be a partner in these efforts to serve this community.

We Do Events not Transportation

In 2010, Experience Life purchased the property that was formerly the TNM&O Bus Station in the heart of downtown Lubbock, TX and renovated the building to use as one of the church campuses. The former bus staging area was turned into a auditorium that is able to hold up to 350 people. The lobby area was converted into several classrooms and multi-purpose rooms, with a modern industrial aesthetic maintained throughout the building to tie this new space with its historic roots. Over the past decade, countless people have inquired about using this space to host their events and after repeated requests, the leadership at Experience Life decided to meet the demand of our community. Thus, the Bus Event Center was launched in 2019. The Bus Event Center offers an event venue to host weddings, parties, formals, or business meetings and other corporate events. The Bus Event Center is the venue you have been looking for. The one that allows you to have a great wedding and money left over to pay your mortgage, allows you and your guest to stay out of the unpredictable Lubbock weather, and enables you to put your own flair on your wedding day.
