Donations help pave the way for Ridgecrest prayer garden

NASHVILLE , Tenn. (BP)–For those who would like to honor a special individual, while contributing to the spiritual growth of others, LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center is making a way for them to do so through the new T.W. Wilson Memorial Prayer Garden.

By purchasing an engraved brick for $100, an individual’s name and a Scripture verse can be placed permanently in the prayer garden for future visitors to see and remember. The money used to purchase a brick (called a paver) will go toward an endowment fund used to maintain the garden year around.

“We wanted to allow people to be able to honor those they love,” said Gary McCauley, director of capital resource development at LifeWay Christian Resources. “For years to come, they can look down and see that name and Scripture.”

The project already has received many donations and help from volunteers. About 70 to 80 percent of the money needed to complete the garden has been raised.

“It’s an investment well worth the cost,” McCauley said.

By donating to the prayer garden, donors will help provide a place where hundreds of lives can be permanently changed, he added.

“The reason people come to Ridgecrest is for rest and spiritual renewal — they are hoping to hear from God,” McCauley said.

LifeWay Christian Resources is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. For more information on the prayer garden or how to dedicate a brick to a special loved one, contact Stacey Owens at (615) 251-3878 at LifeWay’s Capital Resource Development.
