In 2016 the St. John Long Term Planning Team came to the conclusion that further expansion of the Grand Prix Dr property would be nearly impossible. One of the members of the team found the Schummacher property pictured above. Our team decided that the property perfectly met St. John's stated requirements for a new location. The main requirement was that we continue in ministry within the same neighborhood on 10 acres or more. This site is the only property that met our needs. The problem was that it wasn't for sale.
In October of 2019, St. John's prayers were answered when the property suddenly came on the market. It was on the market for 4 days when St. John's offer was accepted. The plan to purchase the property was ratified by District Leadership and Church leadership in record time. The Church vote was unanimous! Plans are underway for the eventual relocation of ministry to this site.
