Large church property bought by different large church

New life for a troubled property.

The Christian Center on Cowardin Avenue has been dealing with bankruptcy for over a year now and the large property has finally been sold.

Details from Richmond

The buyer was Mountain of Blessings Christian Center, a church that currently operates in Eastern Henrico. It has a six-figure renovation in mind for the 37,000-square-foot property that Pastor Dimitri Bradley said will be easier for its geographically scattered congregation to reach.

“This will make us more central, honestly,” Bradley said. “We have people that drive from deep in Chesterfield and pay three tolls to go to church.”

In addition to the main Richmond Christian Center church building, Mountain of Blessings also bought a cluster of smaller buildings that were part of the auction on both sides of West 19th Street and a row of parking lots on the southern side of Wall Street.
