The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden Advances to Next Phase

King Sculpture Prayer GardenThe next phase of construction at a 23-acre evangelistic garden in Kerrville, TX, is underway and the hope is to finish most of the new garden before Easter.

Even in its unfinished state, The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden has been the top year-round tourist attraction in Kerrville, drawing people from across the United States and at least 27 countries.

A highlight of the cross-shaped garden is “The Empty Cross” – a 77’7” contemporary sculpture located at the same latitude as Israel. The blood-colored Corten steel cross “bleeds” as it rusts in a controlled corrosion, which creates a beautiful patina that never needs to be painted. Because of its uniqueness, the symbolic cross is featured on many websites, including an international sculpture website.

“I am convinced the Holy Spirit will move on the hearts of millions of people as they simply view the sculptures and read the Gospel,” commented Max Greiner, Jr., President of The Coming King Foundation, which was established in 2004 to build gardens like the one in Kerrville all over the world.

“This will happen quietly as the Sculpture Prayer Gardens function like giant, walk-in salvation tracts,” Greiner added. “Visitors will enter lost and leave born-again and full of the Holy Spirit! It is already happening to thousands of people in Kerrville, even though the garden is not finished.”

Thanks to a recent $125,000 grant from the Charlie & Hal Peterson Foundation, the landmark garden is now closer to completion. To date, the garden has been built on faith and without debt. Approximately $2.5 million has been raised and spent on the garden. In addition, $3 million-worth of monumental art has been donated by three internationally-collected Christian artists: Greiner, David Broussard, and Beverly Paddleford.

On Saturday, April 19, The Coming King Foundation will host a live Christian concert with local worship teams all day as part of a weekend celebration of Christ’s resurrection. On the following morning, at 7:00 a.m., there will be a non-denominational service. Last year’s service drew more than 300 people from several states.
