The Christian Fellowship Church may be closing it’s Ashburn location.
The church sits on more than 22 acres of data center zoned land right in data center alley. With the need to update church facilities — estimated to cost $5 million over five years — and the fact that the church sits on valuable land, convinced the church’s Board of Directors to look into selling the property.
In addition to the $5 million expected renovation, the church also has a debt of $4.5 million, Lead Pastor Brian Bales said in a statement. By selling the property, the church could pay off the debt and find a new location that fits all its needs. Based on the offer made on the property, the church’s Board has recommended the church take the offer, buy land and build a church that will serve the congregation’s needs for the next 40 years.
“This offer would allow our relocation to be within five miles of our current facility and would also make us debt free,” Bales said in a statement.
The church membership will vote on the sale of the facility at 7 p.m. Sept. 14.
