The Church of Eleven22 announced Jan. 5 that it bought 55 acres for its first campus in St. Johns County.

The property is at County Roads 223 and 244 in Northwest St. Johns County.

County records show Church of Eleven22 Inc. bought the property Nov. 30 for  $2.73 million from WCI Communities LLC. 

“Nearly 3,000 members of Eleven22 currently drive quite a distance to worship the Lord with us each weekend, and this future campus will be within a five-mile radius of their home,” said Shawn Maxwell, executive director of operations.

The church said construction of the 50,000-square-foot campus and 1,500-seat worship center is expected to begin in early 2022.

In advance, Eleven22 will launch a mobile campus March 28 at Creekside High School to serve as the worship center until the campus building is complete.

“We have been prayerfully considering the right time to expand into St. Johns County where so many of our members reside, and we are amazed at how the Lord continues to move in us and through us at Eleven22 in spreading the gospel,” said Joby Martin, lead pastor, in a news release.

The website shows it has seven campuses in San Pablo, Arlington, Baymeadows, Fleming Island, Mandarin and at Baker and Union Correctional Institutions. The San Pablo campus is its headquarters.

An eighth Duval County campus is in development in North Jacksonville.
