One of the country's fastest growing churches is moving to downtown Nashville.
Cross Point Church, which currently has multiple campuses in the area, purchased the 110,000 square-foot building that was home to Rexell Electric.
The church, led by Pastor Pete Wilson, has grown out of its space on Charlotte Avenue.
"Moving to the center of Nashville is really part of our strategy. We love the heart of this city, we love the people of Nashville, so it makes sense," said campus pastor Blake Bergstrom.
"Where's a lot of need down here, so we're excited to be able to come and help meet some of those needs and partner with some of the organizations we've been partnering with a long time," he continued.
The new building has a somewhat iconic sign that stands several stories high. It has a triangular base and a cap that reads Rexell Electrics. It can be seen from Interstate 65 and 24 and from much of the northeast side of town.
"We'll put our logo on that top section of the sign and then on the triangle, our website will be featured there." said Crosspoint's Executive Director Jenni Catron.
"We purchased the entire building and phase one we're renovating about 55,000 square-feet. Which is about half of the building" she said.
The first service in the new building is scheduled for March 24th.
Catron tells News 2 that construction is on schedule.
