Albany -- An Albany church is growing, and leaders say that will allow them to serve the community better.

Ebenezer Christian Center broke ground on Thursday at its future Oakridge Drive location.

The church outgrew its current location on South Madison Street.

In 1995, they had about 20 members, but now they have 300.

Pastor Charlie Williams says the church wants to expand its outreach programs and will continue to meet the spiritual and financial needs of people in the community.

"We feel that the Lord led us to this spot.  And one of the things that we want to do, among the many things we want to do, we want to get our children back from the street.  We want to give them a place to go.  So, this is not just a church, this is a ministry," Williams said.

The new Oakridge Drive location is expected to be complete in a year.
