"We had it with the idea of relocating a ministry out there," said senior pastor Greg Waltermire.
"It was just bad timing it seemed.
The cost of steel, cost of construction and the economy all hit at a difficult time."
During that time, the church relocated from its former home on Swigert Avenue in North Lexington to Ashland Avenue.
"When we relocated here, we still did it with hopes of just being here temporarily and using it as a springboard," Waltermire
"With the economy, it turned out being a better opportunity to stay here, at which point we put it (the Hamburg lot) on the market."
It took a couple of years for the property to sell.
The church used some of the proceeds to pay off the debt on its Ashland Avenue building.
"We have a debt-free ministry, which is something we really wanted to have," Waltermire
