The Basement moves services from Trussville
By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — The Basement has relocated from Trussville to the Roebuck area.
The ministry has moved its offices and services from Railroad Street in downtown Trussville to 9094 Rear Parkway East in Roebuck. The building houses CBF Ministries International, run by UAB chaplain and former Blazer Jhun Cook.
The Basement held services and had office space at the Railroad Street location for about two years. The new facility will hold about 500 people, said The Basement security director Vince Lovell.
The first official service at the Roebuck location will be Tuesday, July 29, Lovell said.
The Basement founder and youth evangelist Matt Pitt was released from Shelby County Jail in April after serving eight months for a probation revocation on an impersonating a police officer charge. Pitt still faces a charge of impersonating a peace officer in Jefferson County in connection to an incident from June 2013 in Grayson Valley. The Jefferson County charge was ruled a violation of the youth minister’s probation from a previous conviction of attempting to impersonate a peace officer in Shelby County.
