Ascension Lutheran Church in Ocala, Florida, has received enhanced cell phone coverage, as well as the ability to expand its ministry, thanks to a new cell tower. Due to the additional income that the cell tower on its property has provided, the church has reaped the financial benefits within its congregation. According to Pastor Jim Young, “I had checked with other churches that had cell towers on their property. All of them said it was just a blessing and that they could expand their ministry because of it. We have already designated 50 percent will stay in our church to expand our ministries and 50 percent will go to other ministries.”
