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.

James C. Dobson, who founded the Christian media empire Focus on the Family, has been hospitalized after suffering what officials of his organization called a "mild to moderate" heart attack. Paul L. Hetrick, vice president of the nonprofit, Pomona-based Focus on the Family, said Dobson, 54, will remain at a Pasadena hospital for tests until the end of the week. Dobson, who regularly plays basketball with friends, experienced chest pains during a game and drove himself to the hospital.

Focus on the Family, which was founded by psychologist James Dobson 13 years ago to promote Christian family values and has grown into a $63-million-a-year media empire, announced Thursday that it has outgrown its headquarters in Pomona and plans to move to Colorado Springs, Colo. Dobson, the organization's president, said the move is contingent on the sale of its property in Pomona, but the move could occur 18 months to two years after the sale.
