CRESTVIEW — Commuters heading eastbound on James Lee Boulevard into Crestview may have noticed some construction work outside city limits.

Praise, Power and Compassion Ministries recently broke ground for a church at 2188 James Lee Blvd. The 16,000-square-foot facility, to be completed in December, will seat nearly 400 people and include Sunday school classrooms and a fellowship hall.

"It's an awesome feeling to see a vision come to pass," the Rev. Darrell Coleman, the church’s pastor, said. "Whenever a vision is fulfilled, it says a lot about the people involved."

The people whom Coleman was referring to are his congregation, nearly 160 people who attend services.

“Were small, but engaged,” Coleman said, referring to the church membership and its dedication.

“Funding for the (over 9-acre) property and the building wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the donations from within the ministry,” he said.

The fellowship hall should help those with more than spiritual needs, Coleman said.
