Ultimately the project Benjamin’s Hope, directed by Krista Mason, has turned into a residential community which fully supports living, worship, and daily activities.
The vision for a worship center and gathering space trace back to early conversations, when Krista sat down with our AMDG design team and began collaboratively refining her vision.
