Crews are busy preparing the newest Oklahoma City metro-area LifeChurch.tv campus for its grand opening on July 13.

The Broadway and Britton church at 9001 N Broadway Extension is Edmond-based LifeChurch.tv’s eighth metro-area campus and one of its more high-profile satellites.

The Rev. Vince Parker, campus pastor for the new satellite, said he predicts its visibility and accessibility from the Broadway Extension, one of the most heavily traveled thoroughfares in the metro, will help attract newcomers to the house of worship.

“People will drive by and see it and come in,” he said.

Parker, 38, of Midwest City, said the new church building is 36,001 square feet, and the sanctuary area includes 800 chairs. Like all of the LifeChurch.tv campuses, the satellite includes an expansive lobby area and a colorful, interactive area for children and youths, called LifeKids.

He said the church will offer three Sunday services featuring contemporary style worship music and faith messages from the Rev. Craig Groeschel, the church’s founding senior pastor, via broadcast satellite. He said infants, children and youths will experience a faith message geared for their age level in the LifeKids area.

Parker said he has been a LifeChurch.tv staff member for five years, helping to launch the Midwest City campus in 2011. He also served at LifeChurch.tv Northwest Oklahoma City, 5821 Northwest Expressway.
