Harsch Investment Properties, which owns the business park where Verity Baptist is located, has informed the church that the company will not be renewing its lease because it can't tolerate "tenants who advocate hatred and the taking of innocent lives."
Since the company cannot legally force the church to move until its lease is up on March 31, 2017, ABC 10 reports that company officials announced in a press release that they have simply asked church leaders to move out. more >>
