The Encounter building in Downtown Duluth is up for sale.

The Head of the Lakes Youth for Christ program currently resides there, but the executive director of the program said on Wednesday that they're searching for a building that's easier to maintain.

He said the maintenance of the large building takes up time and energy that they would rather put toward reaching more kids.

The group has no plans on where they will relocate, but the program will continue in the Encounter building until it is sold. The building is listed online for $495,000.
