Scott Boulevard Baptist Church: past, present, future

The Associated Baptist Press, Inc. has a lovely interview with Pastor Greg Smith at the Scott Blvd. Baptist Church. In it, he discusses the congregations's history, the process that led to the decision to sell the property, and the church's future plans.
This congregation had its heyday in the ‘60s with an average attendance of around 500 people. But the neighborhood … aged out as the children left home in the early '70s and never returned. So the congregation aged with the neighborhood. 
Please see the ABP's website to read Church sold as members go missional.
