The electricity is back on at Without Walls Central Church in Lakeland, Fla., after months of abandonment.
Bishop Randy White, who leads Without Walls International Church in Tampa, and a team of church members cleaned up the Lakeland facility last week with the hope of restoring the ministry there.
“[W]e cleaned up the facilities at Without Walls Central in Lakeland, FL. We repaired doors and windows, and I am so happy to let you know that today we turned the electric back on. I am believing for a revival to hit Central Florida!” White said in an email to the church last Friday.
The Lakeland church (which seats 9,000) has been closed since last August and the electricity was disconnected because of missed payments, according to a report last year by The Ledger. At that time, White had told The Ledger that the property was either going to be sold or go into foreclosure.
Without Walls International had bought the property, formerly Carpenter’s Home Church, in 2005 as it was experiencing fast growth. But the church began to struggle in 2007. The founders of Without Walls, Randy and Paula White, divorced; the couple was among six televangelists being probed by the Senate for possible misuse of their nonprofit status; and some of the church staff turned on the Whites and went to the media with their complaints, accusing the couple of focusing on money and fame.
