Leesburg- Members, builders, and contractors broke ground on a 63,000 square foot family center at First Baptist Church of Leesburg. The center will include 60 classrooms, a gym, nursery, and a senior center.
"We are looking at 5 and half million dollars. Building has already started as you can see today. the steel and concrete should be completed in two weeks," says Pastor Bobby Harrell.
"We didn't ask to give any certain amount we said you pray about it, and our fundraising campaign has been several months in the process now, and we just said pray about it and give what the Lord leads you to give," adds church administrator Terry Grinstead.
The church is also using a Christian construction company to build their state-of-the-art facility. "We found a group out of Utah, 'Building God's Way,' Daniel Cook Associates, and that's what they do, they build God's way. They're Christian, they only build Christian churches and schools," explains Grinstead.
Building God's Way representatives talk about the importance of a company like theirs.
"We have an aspect of our program that is called a ministry of construction which brings God into this program or into this concept which is left out mostly in traditional construction aspects for churches and Christian schools," says Alan Williams.
By keeping God in the building process, the church hopes to keep more members in the building. Elaine Armstrong, Newscenter 10 Leesburg.
Grinstead says members will help build and provide lunches for the construction crews. After the existing structures are knocked down, the new facility should be complete in about a year and a half.
