GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The property once owned by Dove World and run by leader Terry Jones is now operated by a new church that hopes to bring a different atmosphere to the area that once claimed international attention.

Dove World sold their Gainesville property at 5805 NW 37th Street to Spirit of Faith in July, according to Alachua County property records.
The property's previous owners captured the world's attention after threatening to hold Quran-burning events.

Polk County deputies say Jones was arrested on Wednesday in central Florida for endangering others by transporting kerosene-soaked Qurans to a scheduled burning event.

Pastors Ken and Tabatha Claytor plan to hold their first services in their new location Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.

What is real news is that Terry Jones was arrested on fabricated felony charges. While I don't condone what he does arresting him for protesting, the actions of people who murder for any reason, is un just and UN AMERICAN. Sadly the news has not been keen on picking up that police can now fabricate charges on you when county officials feel they want it.
