Southland Christian announces deal to buy part of Lexington Mall

Southland Christian Church is confirming a deal to buy part of Lexington Mall.

The church released a statement Saturday night saying it's entered into a contract to purchase part of the property.

Officials plan to build an additional campus on the site at Richmond Road and New Circle.

"We are excited to see how God will guide us through this process as we move forward with this additional location," says Southland's Lead Pastor Jon Weece. "Our mission is to share joy, hope and healing with others through our love of God and people."

The church has already begun the design process with an architect and plans to solicit input from stores and residents living nearby.

Southland's main campus is on Harrodsburg Road and serves about 10,000 people.

Southland created a satellite campus in Danville last September.

Details on the Lexington Mall deal aren't being made public.
