In an effort to “grow” their community, leaders of Sanctuary Church in Fort Lauderdale announced plans to redevelop their church site.

Leaders for the LGBT-friendly church, 1400 N. Federal Hwy., announced their plans earlier this month on Facebook. “We just announced some big news at our church and we are excited to share it with you. Our goal is to create a church that is growing our local community in congruency to giving to our local ministries.”

The church building will remain, but the plans, which are still in the preliminary stages, include affordable housing, a redevelopment of the waterfront, and shops which “give a percentage to our ministries for every purchase.”

A call to Sanctuary Church was not returned in time for publication.
