A growing church in Hunter's Creek paid $3.2 million this week to buy 11.6 acres for its second campus in Kissimmee.
Wade Mumm, lead pastor of Greeneway Church, told GrowthSpotter the church acted fast to secure the prime site at the corner of John Young Parkway and Centerview Drive even before crafting a master plan.
"We felt like we needed to jump in right away," he said on Thursday. "It's such a great location, and we were able to get the full 11.6 acres."
Mumm said Greeneway's current building is "tucked away" in Hunter's Creek. "Some people like a smaller service, so we'll continue to offer two of our Sunday services in Hunter's Creek."
The new location provides greater visibility and enough space for a building that can accommodate twice as many worshipers. The new building will seat between 800 and 1,000 people, and will have a reception hall and classrooms.
"We want it to be kid-friendly, so it will have a play zone," Mumm said. "We think it could be a great location for a daycare. It could be done in phases."
