Pinelake Church of Oxford finalized its purchase of 12 acres of land off Highway 314 across from FNC Park Friday, July 13. The acquisition is for the construction of a new, permanent church campus.
The church first began in Oxford in 2015 and has since grown into a weekly service of more than 1,800 attendees. Services are currently held at the Oxford Conference Center.
“We looked at a number of locations before landing on this particular piece of property,” said Troy Page, executive pastor of communications. “We feel it is a great location because of its familiarity, accessibility and visibility to the Oxford Community.”
Page said the church initially began looking for property for the future church in March of 2017. The church will begin mastering a planning process this fall and a construction timeline will be available for the church and the Oxford community in early Spring 2019.
“Moving forward we will continue to meet in the Oxford Conference Center,” he said.
Jody Schmelzer, the pastor of the Oxford Pinelake congregation, said the church has loved being a part of the Oxford community and being able to witness lives transforming over the past three years.

“We are thankful for the Conference Center and will continue to meet there as we plan and develop our new location,” Schmelzer said. “One day we hope our church will mirror what you see weekly at FNC Park: scores of people cheering on their family and friends.”
