Athletics complex abruptly shuts down

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The Mississippi Basketball and Athletics Center (MBA) at 3240 Westbrook Road, owned by Detroit-based Word of Faith International Christian Center, closed abruptly last week.

Parents of children who attended the center were stunned at the news. They say the center had operated for three years, providing successful programs giving a safe athletic haven to local kids.

Word of Faith declined to comment on the closing. A giant "For Sale" sign is now sitting on the grass in front of the property.
