Former strip club gets new life as church
Stripper poles are being replaced with church pews.
A Florida Strip Club is undergoing a major transformation.
The lead pastor of a newly founded church says prayers have been answered with a space that was once a sexually oriented business.
They'll be moving into the space once known as Double Dee's Ranch.
The pastor says it's a miracle that they were able to strike a deal for the building worth $9 million.
"I don't mind being in a building that was a strip club any more than I mind somebody walking in our doors that had, at one time in their life, been a stripper," the pastor said. "We believe we can bring hope and healing to any location, that's what we're trying to do."
The church currently holds services in a high school.
Members hope to move into their new church home early next year.
