Cross Point Church eyes Rexel Electric building

Fast-growing non-denominational church Cross Point is starting a campaign to acquire the Rexel Electric building on the east bank of the Cumberland River.

The 10-year-old church, which has campuses in west Nashville, Bellevue, Dickson, Hendersonville and a congregation which meets at Rocketown has begun a campaign — called "Chapter 2" — to raise between $4 and $5 million to purchase the 114,000-square-foot warehouse north of LP Field. (The images accompanying this story are from the Chapter 2 site.)

The church plans a 2,000-seat auditorium at the property in addition to other meeting and worship spaces, plus improved facilities to broadcast services to its outlying campuses.

With the exception of its Bellevue location, Cross Point leases or rents its current locations.
