The Inspiration Networks is moving its headquarters from Charlotte, N.C., to Lancaster County, S.C., AP reported.

The Christian programmer, which has 300 employees, said it will build a 93-acre campus over the next decade. CEO David Cerullo told AP the $98 million "City of Light" complex, about five miles south of Ballantyne, will eventually be able to accommodate as many as 1,500 employees.

INSP added that its new campus will include a welcome center, an administration building, a ministry training center, an outdoor concert pavilion, seven studios and back-lot operations, including script-writing and editing.

The programmer’s cable networks reach 22 million households in the United States, and its Inspiration Network International serves some 500 million foreign households, AP reported.
