On September 13, The Coming King Foundation (TCKF) will dedicate its evangelistic Sculpture Prayer Garden in Kerrville, TX, which has been 14 years in the making.
The 24.5-acre garden park features $3 million-worth of monumental art, including a 77’7” Cor-tin steel contemporary sculpture called “The Empty Cross” that “bleeds” as it rusts in a controlled corrosion, creating a beautiful patina that never needs to be painted.
“After 14 years, the original 300’ cross-shaped garden ‘vision’ is finally being completed,” remarked artist and evangelist Max Greiner, Jr., who has been working to make the vision a reality since December 2001. “Praise God!”
To date, people from all 50 states and no less than 51 countries have already visited the free park even before its completion. Within the first seven months of this year alone, at least 52,497 visitors reportedly stopped by, making the park Kerrville's largest year-round art and tourist attraction.
The dedication of the garden will start at 2:30 p.m. on September 13, with live worship scheduled to go into the evening. The dedication will conclude with prayers for America and Israel by leaders from different Christian denominations. According to Greiner, guests are expected from across Texas, the United States, and the world.
Those planning to attend the dedication are encouraged to RSVP by telephone (830-928-7774) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). More information on TCKF is available on the foundation's website, www.thecomingkingfoundation.org.
In the future, TCKF plans to construct wildlife observation areas, walking trails, picnic areas, a pavilion, a chapel, and a visitors' center with museums at the garden.
The free garden is open 365 days a year, from 7:00 a.m. until midnight.
