PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – The 30,000-member Prestonwood Baptist Church announced an $18 million expansion Saturday that will add a third location in Far North Dallas.

The announcement marks the second expansion for Prestonwood. The church opened a satellite church in Prosper in 2007, which already has a weekly attendance of at least 2,000 worshippers.

The new Prestonwood Dallas Campus includes an 1,800 seat sanctuary, a 900 seat performing arts center, classrooms and a chapel. Prestonwood members will vote on the plan during a meeting on the weekend of April 2 and 3.

If all goes well, Rev. Jack Graham said the expansion will be open by late August or early September.

The expansion will take over the building and property once owned by Hillcrest Church, located on Hillcrest Road just south of Interstate 635.
