Minnesota's largest megachurch, Eagle Brook, is expecting to break ground on a new $25 million satellite campus in Woodbury in April.Executive Pastor Scott Anderson confirmed the multi-million dollar expansion in an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, and said the church was just marching ahead with the mandate it received from God."The vision is to reach people who are far from God and introduce them to Christ
It's a continuation of what we have been doing for the last 20 years," he said.Eagle Brook's Woodbury church opened in September 2011 and has been meeting at the East Ridge High School in the area since then. The location is Eagle Brook's fifth location. Attendance at services held at the location on Saturdays and Sundays currently average between 1,500 and 2,000, according to the church.With current attendance at the megachurch totaling about 20,000 and counting with the addition of the Woodbury facility, the Hartford Institute for Religion Research ranks Eagle Brook as the eighth largest church in America.When asked about the ranking, Anderson said: "We are not interested in rankings, we are interested in doing what God has called us to do." The Woodbury satellite has its own pastor and runs a live worship service but the main message is delivered via simulcast from Eagle Brook's Lino Lakes headquarters in the state.read more: http://www.christianpost.com/news/minnesotas-largest-megachurch-readies-for-25-million-expansion-91241/
