/ -- A humble 80 year old retired mid-west executive put his entire retirement income on the line to purchase an Ozark mountain top outside of Branson, Missouri. He fought to obtain the necessary permits to construct one of the world's largest crosses and was successful obtaining the permits. The retiree has faith the nationwide Christian community would rally around the Cross and see the project to completion. Wishing to remain anonymous stating "it's not about me…it's about an admission free family friendly entertainment destination that will depict the greatest story ever told… Jesus Christ life while here on earth." The non-profit Images at the Cross is responsible for fundraising and will recognize on a first come first serve basis all donors with permanent personalized inscriptions. "No donation is too small or too large and gives everyone ownership in the Cross" claims the retiree. He passionately exclaims "there is no better way to create a lasting legacy by having a personalized family inscription that will appear on bricks, pavers, walls, light stands and other places on and around the Cross." Serene garden areas and panoramic views will surround the Branson Cross where anyone can meditate and have an encounter with the Lord.
Twin Elevators will take visitors heavenward 20 stories in which each level depicts in detail Christ's life here on earth. The site is highly visible atop a prominent Ozark mountain for the nearly 200 tour busses and 8 million annual entertainment seekers commute to Branson, Missouri known as the live entertainment capital of the Midwest. There has been quite a buzz created in the Branson, Missouri area and the sleepy community of Walnut Shade in eager anticipation of the Branson Cross that will tower over the panoramic Heartland of America. Soon a webcam will be placed atop the mountain so anyone who visits their website can view progress in real time.
