The Lubbock Dream Center breaking ground for the new Talkington Life Center on Saturday. At approximately 17,000 square feet, the center will be used as a multi-purpose facility: classroom, gymnasiums and training rooms.
Senior pastor Jackie White said the facility will open up new opportunities.
"We will be using more and more volunteers. Volunteers are key to the success of the Dream Center. We have people come from all over- from churches, different organization and businesses, that help us as volunteers. Everything from Literacy Lubbock teaching classes here, to GED classes to our clothing and food ministry," White said. "It just opens the door for us to do more and more things for this community."
The new facility will be about twice the size of its current location.
