Every so often a fortuitous confluence of theme, talent, and place occurs in such a way as to capture one’s attention and fire one’s enthusiasm. Christ in America Park is all of this for me—supernal, sculpted messages from and about the Savior of the world, about the Promised Land and its people, all within one of its loveliest valleys.

Who We Are

"We" is a term that has snowballed from the singular to plural as one man's vision of a world class sculpture park dedicated to Jesus Christ has spread over the decades. The people that dedicate time, resources, and support to the realization of the Christ in America Legacy Park have each gained an individual conviction of the project and it's timeliness in today's world.
