Centerpoint Church Opens New Campus In Brandon/Valrico Area

Centerpoint Church is expanding its reach in the greater Brandon area by launching a second campus in Valrico. The goal of the church has always been to meet the tangible needs of the community and to ‘tear down every barrier to the Gospel of Jesus.’ This campus will be called ‘Centerpoint Church – North,’ and is located at 1720 S. St. Cloud Rd. in Valrico. It will hold more than 400 people, roughly double the size of the current Centerpoint Church campus on Miller Rd.

Centerpoint plans to leave both campuses open, calling the current campus ‘Centerpoint Church – South.’ The new campus used to be the home of Horizon Christian Church, which joined under the banner of Centerpoint Church in mid-2018. The Centerpoint Church – North is also home to Hispanic Church of Brandon, which will now meet on Sunday afternoons.

The Centerpoint Church – North officially launched on Easter weekend.

Service times will be at 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. on Sundays at both campuses.
