Ministry Eyes Sherman Zoning Change

The city of Sherman has received a zoning request that could bring a well-known ministry to Sherman. But it's causing some worry among nearby residents.

His potential neighbors have been helping people since 1959, and now they want to help men in the north Texas area. But James Holmes can't help but be a little bit worried.

His home in the Laurel Creek subdivision sits just barely over the fence from the place where Life Challenge wants to put their newest training center, a place where up to 100 men with life-controlling issues can come free of charge to study religion.

Life Challenge wants to fix the building up but nearby residents in homes and apartments wonder what else they will bring to the area. And those are concerns Holmes plans on talking about with his neighbors, all of whom will receive notice from the city about the request and a public forum where they will be allowed to speak in front of the board.
