One of America’s largest evangelical megachurches announced on Sunday that it will launch its 10th campus to better serve thousands of its congregants and underserved populations.
Southeast Christian Church based in Louisville, Kentucky, will launch a new campus just outside Louisville in Bullitt County, according to a post on the church’s Facebook page.
“[W]e are showing the love of Jesus to one person at a time living in Bullitt County!” the post reads. “Please join us as we pray to Catch the Wind in Bullitt County. Stay tuned for more details.”
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the location of the new Bullitt County campus has not yet been decided. However, the SECC expects the new campus will likely seat around 400 to 600 people.
The plans make sense for the congregation, which has over 22,000 members across two states, because it has several thousand members that live in Bullitt County, said Senior Pastor Kyle Idleman.
“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,” Idleman was quoted as telling the newspaper.
SECC named Heath Barth as the Bullitt County campus pastor. Barth has served for four years as SECC’s Bullitt County community pastor.
