The Barn's South Wall Erected 

In this video, filmed on site at The Sanctuary, Andrew brings viewers an update on the construction progress at Charis Bible College's new campus in Woodland Park. While much of the content in previous updates has featured the excavation and ground preparation for the first building, this video brings viewers an all new perspective as the Barn's exterior begins to take shape. Crews have completed the installation of the pre-cast sections of the South-facing wall, enclosing all four sides of the building. With the walls erected, steel workers have begun placing 300 tons of interior steel framing. Significant progress can be seen since Andrew's last update.
