An insurance company that covers churches and their activities is planning a $15 million expansion of its Fort Wayne headquarters.

Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Co. announced Thursday it would build a nearly 55,000 square-foot building on its current campus to provide additional office and training space for its agents and staff.

The company says the new building should be finished by early 2014 and that it expects to add perhaps 100 workers in the next few years.

The company says it now has nearly 270 employees in Fort Wayne. It provides property, liability and other insurance coverage for more than 40,000 churches and ministries across the country.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says it offered Brotherhood Mutual up to $925,000 in tax credits and training grants based on its hiring plans.
