Entries in The Sanctuary (40)


Time-lapse Construction Update Video

Andrew's television crew has put together a fantastic time-lapse video showing the progression of the ministry's building project in Woodland Park. Some will remember the opening scenes from an earlier video, posted in May of 2010, where Andrew unveiled the plans for CBC's new campus on the hood of his Jeep. In just over four minutes you will be brought up to date and be able to see the vast amount of work that has been completed at The Sanctuary.


CBC's New Rooflines and Textures

With each passing week the progress at Charis Bible College's new campus in Woodland Park, Colorado seems to accelerate. As the individual construction crew's contributions are integrated, the new spaces become more recognizable.

Noticeable highlights in this week's update include the crispness of the newly shingled rooflines and the layered textures of the building's interior. From the rugged stone work to the freshly tiled walls in the restrooms, the colors and textures of the first building at The Sanctuary are beginning to show inviting signs of a very welcoming and distinctly Coloradan atmosphere.

Interior Colors Bring Warmth to The Barn

Painting and flooring crews have joined the mix at The Sanctuary, Charis Bible College's new campus in Woodland Park, Colorado. As construction progresses, the cold stark images of wall framing and raw drywall have begun to give way to a rich pallet of earthen colors as the painters have brought life to the classrooms and other newly crafted spaces. Some who have toured the site in recent weeks have commented about how beautifully the Barn's design fits in with the property's landscape. Careful attention to detail in architectural design and choices made for the interior and exterior finishes have had a great impact on the building's growing appeal.

Warm and welcoming, are just two of words that will come to mind as many of you view the images below.
