Construction on the former Hattiesburg Hunt Club is now underway.
The building off of Highway 49 will now be the home of Venture Church, an outreach program that is an expansion of First Baptist Church of Hattiesburg.
Byron Malone, the pastor for Venture Church, said he hoped the new location would help the ministry grow.
"You know one of the things we began to do at Venture Church was look for a second location to go into a multi site program with our ministry. And so we began looking for a place to to launch a new site two years ago, but this really began to come together last fall," said Malone.
