On February 7, 2003 The Columbus Dispatch reported that "a Hindu temple yesterday closed its deal to buy evangelist Leroy Jenkins' Healing Waters Cathedral for $1.3 million... The purchase will give the Yogi Divine Society, based in New Jersey, room for up to 800 followers in central Ohio and adjacent states... The deal includes 9 acres on S. Sandusky Street on Delaware's south side that has been owned by the Leroy Jenkins Evangelical Association for 33 years, said Gloria Rose, a real-estate agent with the Gilbert Group, a Columbus agency that handled the sale. The tract includes the main auditorium used by Jenkins' ministry, as well as his private residence and a small cottage."
