Faith sculptures draw visitors
A sculpture is lowered into place by a crane in the Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden on I-10 near Kerrville. The garden is open 365 days a year, from 6 a.m. to midnight. Admission is free.
KERRVILLE -- The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden, though not finished, is already drawing thousands of tourists to the Hill Country community of Kerrville, from across Texas, the USA, and world. Visitors come for two reasons: to see the most symbolic cross in the world, and to experience the power of God that is manifesting daily in the form of miracles, signs, and wonders.
The Coming King Foundation has added to the Christ-honoring sculpture garden on I-10 with seven new monumental sculptures installed in early November.
They join “The Empty Cross,” a massive 70-foot-plus, Cor-ten steel contemporary sculpture erected in 2010. The $2 million, 70-ton cross stands on a hill at the same latitude as Israel, approximately halfway between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans on I-10.
The “Tabernacle Garden” is free to the public, and is open 365 days a year, from 6 a.m. until midnight. Currently, eight monumental sculptures are on display, though the grounds are not finished yet. More than $3 million worth of monumental Christian sculptures have been donated to the park by three internationally collected artists: Beverly Paddleford of Lander, Wyo., David Broussard of Dallas, and Max Greiner Jr. of Kerrville. The artists say they donated their sculptures for the glory of God.
Many visitors to the Hill Country park claim that the power of God is manifesting. Pilgrims report changed lives, and physical and emotional healings. The sense of God’s holy presence, His peace, and power are felt by most visitors to the garden.
Thousands are being drawn to Kerrville’s Sculpture Prayer Garden, not just because of the monumental art, but because they believe God is on this mountain.
