August 2018: Churches Find New Locations with Help from NAI Cressy
MISHAWAKA (August 20, 2018) – NAI Cressy, a leading Indiana-based commercial real estate firm announced the sale of a former church at 802 E Mishawaka Avenue in Mishawaka, Indiana. The 26,958 SF church sits on 1.66 acres. NAI Cressy, Senior Broker, Sheral Litell, represented the seller, First Apostolic Church Incorporated.
Originally constructed in 1969, the building has a sanctuary, offices, classrooms and conference rooms. The property offers a location west of the St. Joseph River and Merrifield Park in a predominately residential neighborhood. Although there was a great deal of interest for varied uses such as the church (i.e. banquet halls, apartments, etc.), the Buyer, Rehma Word International Outreach Ministries will keep the use as a church and use the facility for a variety of ministries such as youth and pastoral outreaches.
The seller, First Apostolic Church Incorporated was in search of a new location, where Litell was able to represent them now as the buyer. First Apostolic Church Incorporated purchased former church, Gospel Lighthouse and the Indiana District Pentecostal Church of God, Incorporated church building on 3300 York Street in Mishawaka, Indiana. These transactions assisted two congregations in finding their new churches to begin their ministries. Litell says, “Congregation members helped with the move and food was provided to all for help getting settled in their new church homes. The fellowship and church community made these transactions wonderful to be a part of.”
