Church members purchased the property around 2005. The congregation plans to renovate the 46,000-square-foot structure and must seek rezoning because current conditions limit the site to office and professional use.
"We really aren't asking for a significant change - just the right to have a religious institution on the property," said Woody Galloway of Dillard & Galloway, the attorney for the church.
He said the church will spend more than $3 million to convert the interior of the building. "The existing perimeter will not change."
