Breaking ground on Phase 1 of new campus
May 07, 2014
It was rainy and chilled outside, but that didn't stop Station Hill members, Brentwood Baptist leadership, and Spring Hill city officials. With umbrellas in hand, they showed up on Sunday, April 27 at 5:00 p.m. to break ground on Phase 1 of their new campus.
As the first regional campus of Brentwood Baptist, this thriving congregation has found its home for the last several years in a rented space in Thompson’s Station, behind the Kroger Marketplace, just yards north of the Spring Hill city limits. Having outgrown that spot, they'll land on 30 acres of land north of Saturn Parkway.
The 50,000 square foot facility will include a multi-purpose worship center and a space designed specifically for preschool, children, and student ministries, worship arts, and community outreach ministries.
During the short ceremony, pastors from Brentwood Baptist led in prayer and worship. Pastor Mike Glenn spoke before Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham shared a short statement with the crowd.
At the end of the event, groundbreakers turned the soil and dedicated the property, officially kicking off construction. Groundbreakers were Senior Pastor Mike Glenn, Jay Strother (Station Hill Campus & Teaching Pastor), Brian Coates (Station Hill Discipleship Minister), Don Reid (Brentwood Baptist Master Planning & Property Use Team), and Jeff Swords (Brentwood Baptist Trustee and Station Hill Member).
Jay Strother said, “Our congregation is excited to not only meet the needs of our growing church, but that we’ll also become a blessing to the entire community. The new facility will enable us to expand our mission partnerships and provide gathering space for a wide variety of activities. It’s specifically designed with future outreach to our growing city in mind. With this new strategic location, we’re focused on Jesus’ instructions to be a church that’s a ‘city on a hill’ so that through our ministry and message, we’ll point our entire region to the hope of Christ.”
