New Life Christian Church held the grand opening of the nZone, a former Budweiser facility converted to a church and sports facility.
New Life Christian Church isn't a conventional congregation. "No perfect people are allowed at New Life. Come regardless of your hurts, habits and hang-ups. We’re a place full of messed up people," the church's website proclaims. So perhaps it's fitting that the congregation's new house of worship isn't exactly conventional, either. The church recently moved from its former home at Westfield High School to a renovated Budweiser building in Chantilly. They've named it the "nZone," which doubles as a sports facility and gym during the week and a church on Sundays.
