125k square foot church still empty

$12.5 million will get you a 125,000 square foot megachurch building situated on 51 acres in beautiful Johnson County, KS.  You’ll get a 1,400 seat sanctuary, a huge kitchen, a coffee shop, indoor playland, basketball courts and more.

The bank foreclosed on First Family Church in Overland Park over three months ago, but the property is turning out to be a hard sell.  While the building is beautiful, it is really functional only as… well, a really big church.

So… if you’re in the market to start a megachurch in Kansas… this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.

    I hate to say it, but wow…what a slap in the face. Way to go American Church, for making completely backwards decisions about money. I wonder how soon they’ll offer a Dave Ramsey class at wherever the church meets now.

    In Dallas, the First Baptist Church spent a gargantuan amount for a new building. What is wrong with us? For the amount we spend on churches, we could put dozens of new missionaries in the field overseas. Pathetic. Just pathetic.

    Tonight I had a “down on their luck” family ask me why churches spend so much money on buildings they only use a few hours a week….
    When counseling people out of work that can’t find anywhere to even turn in a job application, let alone get an interview, I find the overall perception of “church” is negative.
    Granted, not all churches turn their resources IN and neglect those in need but our economy is opening a lot of doors for ministry.
