The Church of Eleven22 filed plans for a $15 million expansion of its San Pablo campus — $13 million more than its $2 million build-out of the property in 2012.
WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports the church will expand into the former Hobby Lobby store next door and build a 3,000-seat worship space for its main services, said Shawn Maxwell, the church’s executive director of operations.
The former Hobby Lobby space is 55,000 square feet. The church bought the property at 14286 Beach Blvd. from Sleiman Enterprises in 2017. Hobby Lobby relocated to the Town Center area the same year.
The new worship space will have 1,000 additional seats to accommodate the church’s growth since it opened seven years ago. Maxwell said more than 11,000 people attend Sunday services across the five campuses.
The Church of Eleven22 operates campuses in San Pablo, Arlington, Baymeadows, Mandarin and Fleming Island.
