by | 22 January, 2020 | 0 comments

Megachurches in Indiana and Kentucky are starting new campuses this year.

The new Midtown Campus of Traders Point Christian Church launched in a temporary space in Indianapolis this past Sunday. TPCC has purchased a former grocery store to house the Midtown Campus, with services likely to begin there in 2021.

The church spent $7.6 million to purchase a 57,000-square-foot former Marsh Supermarket that sits on a 6.6-acre parcel, according to the Indianapolis Star. Planned improvements there include creation of an 800-seat auditorium.

TPCC also plans to launch its new Northeast Campus in Fishers, Ind., on Feb. 23, also in a temporary location. A search for a permanent site is under way.

The Midtown Campus is being led by Kyle Riley, while Nick Durm will lead the Northeast Campus.

TPCC started the year with locations in Indianapolis, Carmel, Zionsville, and Avon.

In Kentucky, meanwhile, Southeast Christian Church has announced plans for a campus in Bullitt County, Ky. A spring opening is planned, but an exact date and location for SECC’s 10th campus were not announced. Heath Barth will serve as pastor.

“As a church family we have several thousand people who live in Bullitt County and have been a part of that community for a long time,” senior pastor Kyle Idleman told wave3.com. “Launching this new campus will give them more opportunities to love, serve and care for their neighbors, co-workers, and friends right where they live.”
