Pomona-based Focus on the Family has reached an agreement to sell its California property, clearing the way to relocate the large evangelical media ministry to Colorado Springs by October.
The organization founded and headed by radio psychologist James Dobson announced earlier this month that it had agreed to sell its headquarters property in Pomona to the Cordova Chase Corporation for an undisclosed sum.
Cordova Chase, a Southern California real estate developer, agreed to purchase two buildings on the ministry's nine-acre land. Focus on the Family is still trying to sell another six-acre parcel.
Focus spokesman Paul Hetrick said there is an April 15 deadline to close the purchase. That date would give ministry employees six months to prepare to move before the organization's busy winter season, he said.
