The Mathena Family Event Center is a 35,000 square foot (3,250 m²) Monolithic Dome event center built as part of the Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center in Davis, Oklahoma. The multi-purpose facility can host nearly 2,000 people in a large meeting space that can be subdivided into individual conference rooms. The attached commercial-style kitchen supports banquets and other dining events.

The Monolithic Dome is a unique, oblong shape that is not quite an oval nor a true ellipse. The shape enabled maximum usable space for the available land. The dome is 202-feet (61.5 m) long by 132-feet (40.25 m) wide. Built on a 23-foot (7 m) concrete block stem-wall, the dome is another 29-feet (8.8 m) tall for an overall height of about 52-feet (16 m).
