SAN ANTONIO - Gateway Fellowship Church is preparing to build a permanent campus on an 11.4-acre property between Bandera Rd. and Braun Rd. on the city's far Northwest Side. Plans call for a 28,000-sf facility with construction estimated at $7 million.

The church currently conducts services in the Santikos Silverado 16 movie theater. The church outgrew an elementary school and a couple of commercial sites before moving to the theater. It zeroed in on the 11-acre property just 1,000 feet away.

Retail giant Hobby Lobby bought the land two years ago and gave it to the congregation.

The new facility is expected to provide seating for nearly 800 people. The project will begin in May 2014 and open in February 2015.
