Raise the Cross

Help us build a 120+ foot cross in Wilkesboro, NC to proclaim Jesus to Wilkes county and beyond. This will be a lasting monument for generations to come to be reminded of the hope and transformation that Jesus offers. 

Why build a giant cross?

We have an opportunity to erect a 120+ foot cross in the middle of the FaithFest Events Complex. It will be visible for all to see, as the venue is located right off the four lanes of US 421 in Wilkesboro.

As people drive through Wilkes County, we desire the cross to be seen as a way to proclaim Jesus and the message of the Gospel. Our heart is to leave a lasting reminder of what Jesus Christ did on the cross, by shedding His blood so that the world could be saved.

What will it cost?

We have an opportunity to have the cross erected by FaithFest 2023 and have been blessed to obtain the help of the construction company and engineering company that has put up 40 white crosses throughout Tennessee and beyond. They will volunteer their time to erect the cross and we just need to provide the material.

We need the following:

  • Steel – $98,000
  • Aluminum wrap – $22,000
  • Rental of crane, boring, footers, and concrete – $80,000
  • Concrete pad, rock work, benches, lights, and welcome center – $85,000

Total = $285,000

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to pass on the message of the cross to the next generation and generations to come. We all my have differences, but every born-again Believer can unite around Jesus Christ and the cross of Calvary.

If we break down that cost by foot, it comes out to about $2,000 per foot.

You or your church can raise several feet, or a foot, or part of a foot. Join us in raising the cross one foot at a time

You can give below or send a check to P.O. Box 129 Purlear, NC 28665 with Cross in the memo. Your gift is tax deductible.
