Dear Franklin and BGEA Team! Thank you for allowing me & THE LION OF JUDAH to join you in Waco!

Hi friends,
I wanted to send you a copy of my email to Franklin Graham and 14 people on his leadership team, for your information and prayer.  God is up to something!

As you know, I had hoped the Graham team would stop at the garden on 10/13/17, tour and have lunch with us.  However, I realized when I saw their four buses and two 18 wheeler trucks in Waco that I had bitten off more than I could chew! The Holy Spirit knew it, so He took care of us! 

However, the BGEA and SAMARITAN'S PURSE now know all about us!

Below is my thank you letter to Franklin and his top leadership people.  God gave us great favor with this excellent ministry. I met and prayed with most of the top folks.

Pray that if it is God's will, that they build TCKF Certified Gardens across the USA and world, and send out hundreds of "Lion Evangelists"!  It could happen... if we pray!

Thanks for your prayers and support!

In Jesus,

Dear Franklin and BGEA Team!

First, let me thank you for coming to TEXAS!  The spiritual impact of your efforts will last for eternity!

Thank you all for your kindness, help and prayers this past month as you prayed and communicated with me. Franklin, it was great to meet you again, this time in Waco, just two days after my new "LION OF JUDAH" bronze and "Mobile Evangelistic Trailer" ("MET") was finished!  I drove 20 hours from my Wyoming art foundry to get to Waco by 4:00 PM on Wednesday, 10/18/17.

God and His angels were with me!

Thank you for allowing me to present my newest Christ-honoring sculpture to the attendees at your Waco event. This was my first public presentation of the life-size (105%) "LION OF JUDAH" bronze sculpture.

Thousands of people were drawn to this lion sculpture at your event in Waco.

My evangelism trailer displayed eight (Salvation) Bible verses around the sides.  No matter where I go, the Holy Spirit draws thousands of people to my Christian art trailers.  By the grace of God, I am able to lead many of them to Jesus... on the spot.

Thank you also for inviting me to your 5:30 PM Private Reception at the BAYLOR CLUB.  (Artists and evangelists always are looking for food! It was great!)

Finally, thank you for allowing me to be one of the 15 to 20 people invited to meet with you privately in Waco.  I hope the "SWORD OF THE SPIRIT" I gave you was a blessing.  Franklin, you are a Mighty Warrior for Christ, surrounded by Mighty Warriors! (Note: There is a strong magnet in the box, which allows you to mount the full size broad sword to your door or wall.)

Your prayers with me last Wednesday, for God to multiply THE COMING KING SCULPTURE PRAYER GARDEN vision across the USA and world were sincerely appreciated.

The prototype evangelistic garden and "THE EMPTY CROSS", on IH-10 in Kerrville, TX, has drawn hundreds of thousands of people, 367 days a year since 2010!  All visitors are receiving the written Gospel, in three languages, using 77 Bible verses engraved into 16" Scripture Tiles.  We also provide our free evangelistic tracts to all guests. Volunteer Tour Guide Chaplains are standing by.

Franklin, you prayed with me and my wife, Sherry, on August 19, 2005, in Corpus Christi, for this vision to come into existence.  It has happened!

Thank you!

Thousands of "un-churched" people, who would not go to a church, crusade, read a Christian book or a Bible, watch Christian TV or listen to Christian radio are being Saved using this "Strategic Eye-gate Evangelism" ("SEE")method. (My "SEE" Proposal is attached above.)

Sherry and I would love to partner with the BGEA to build these soul-winning gardens across the USA and world. We would also like to launch a fleet of "Mobile Evangelism Trailers", with hundreds of volunteer "Lion Evangelists", in every state and country!  It could happen if we pray!

"SEE" is a cost effective, "New Wine Skin" method of last days evangelism.

We would love to work with the BGEA, if it is God's will. God has already opened doors around the world for your ministry and my ministry. God may want to use your doors to release the "LION OF JUDAH", and build His evangelistic gardens everywhere!

Therefore, please prayerfully consider testing one "Mobile Evangelistic Trailer" with your own evangelists. You will be amazed at the evangelistic results, at such a low cost per Salvation.

Then, pray about building one Sculpture Prayer Garden at a rural location, somewhere in North Carolina, on a highly traveled Interstate highway. This garden could be a lasting memorial to your Mom and Dad, which would continue to win souls to Jesus long after we are all in Heaven!

Decisions for Christ are happening every day at the Texas Garden... without evangelists, missionaries or pastors.  These ministers are optional with God's "SEE" plan.

And, the free gardens can be self-funded. Currently, TCKF has five metal Collection Boxes at the Texas garden for Prayer Requests. Without asking anyone for money, visitors donate between $10,000 and $15,000 per month, because they are so blessed during their visit! Click here to read some of their comments:

As your team knows, if we follow God's plan, we will be amazed at the evangelistic results.

If MAX GREINER, JR. DESIGNS or THE COMING KING FOUNDATION can ever serve you, please let us know.

And, my offer for a tour of the Kerrville garden and a free lunch is always open to any of your team!  Thank you again for lifting up Jesus in TEXAS!

Your friends In Christ,
Max & Sherry Greiner

TCKF News Release - 10/24/17
Recently, numerous local residents have reported sightings of a giant lion prowling the Kerrville area.  The lion reportedly arrived in our area from Wyoming last Thursday.  The 10’-7” long African lion has repeatedly been spotted on local roads and at THE COMING KING SCULPTURE PRAYER GARDEN, located on a 1,930 hill above Kerrville. The massive male lion is being called the “LION OF JUDAH”.  

The 1,034 lb. life-size (105%) lion is a monumental bronze sculpture created by 65 year old, internationally collected Kerrville artist/evangelist, Max Greiner, Jr.  The $80,000 sculpture, which will be exhibited across America and the world, currently stands atop a custom trailer  that was designed by Greiner for mobile evangelism.  Local welder and pastor, Earnest Taylor built the special 12’ trailer.  TNJ ENGRAVING of Kerrville created the attractive trailer side panels, which feature eight evangelistic Bible verses, and Revelation 5:5, about the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

On Wednesday, 10/18/17, the massive lion sculpture was seen by an estimated 10,000 people at the BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION event held in Waco, TX, at BAYLOR UNIVERSITY.  This was the first public unveiling of Greiner’s latest monumental sculpture. The “DECISION TEXAS” event was hosted by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham. Greiner was one of only about 15 people who were invited to meet privately before the event with the world famous evangelist.

Greiner will be temporarily displaying his new “LION OF JUDAH” sculpture at many locations in the USA. These include the international convention of Christian colleges and universities in January and the NATIONAL RELIGIOUS BROADCASTERS international convention, held in Nashville, TN in 2018

However, the majestic lion sculpture will be temporarily displayed at THE COMING KING SCULPTURE PRAYER GARDEN in Kerrville, when the artist is not traveling with the sculpture on his open trailer across America.

 Greiner has an Architecture degree from TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY and is the founder of THE COMING KING FOUNDATION, with his wife, Sherry.  The Greiners believe that God called them on December 9, 2001 to build a beautiful Sculpture Prayer Gardens around the world, to honor God and bless people.  Today, the first prototype garden is Kerrville’s most popular tourist attraction.  It has already drawn hundreds of thousands of visitors from all 50 states and at least 67 nations, since opening in 2010. 

Amazing true testimonies from the garden can be heard each weekend across almost 1/3 of Texas on “THE CROSS AT KERRVILLE”, radio show. The 30 minute program is broadcast from Austin, San Antonio and Marble Falls. The unusual radio show is also available internationally on the internet at:

Originally, Greiner sculpted the giant lion out of foam and clay at his studio ranch, south of Kerrville.  The delicate clay carving was then cast in bronze at EAGLE BRONZE, in Lander, WY.  The foundry is one of the top art foundries in the world.  EAGLE BRONZE cast the famous Wall St. bull in New York City, the 36’ tall monumental conquistador at the El Paso Airport, which is the largest equestrian sculpture in the world.  They also cast the world’s largest continuous bronze sculpture, which is a giant herd of Longhorn cattle located in front of the Dallas Convention Center.  And, EAGLE BRONZE created all of Greiner’s monumental sculptures, including 77’7”, Cor-ten Steel sculpture, “THE EMPTY CROSS”, which sits atop the 1,930 hill overlooking the City of Kerrville. 

This symbolic, $2,000,000 cross landmark was donated to THE COMING KING SCULPTURE PRAYER GARDEN by the Greiners, and Monte and Beverly Paddleford, owners of EAGLE BRONZE.  The Christian foundry owners also donated Beverly’s two sculptures: “HOPE” and “MARY, MOTHER OF JESUS”.

 The 24.5 acre, world-class tourist attraction is located at the main entrance of Kerrville. It is the only place in the world where all of Greiner’s monumental sculptures can be viewed.  The spiritual art garden drew 105,250 guests in 2016 and has already passed 100,000 visitors for 2017. The spiritual garden has already passed 100,000 visitors for 2017. The free art park is open 365 days a year, from 7:00 AM until midnight.  

The Greiners will be donating the “LION OF JUDAH” life-size bronze sculpture to the Kerrville garden once the funds have been raised to build a massive TEN COMMANDMENTS base and beautiful patio area needed at the top of the hill.  Tax deductible donations to TCKF are needed to bring the “LION OF JUDAH” permanently to the Christian art garden.

ABOUT THE COMING KING SCULPTURE PRAYER GARDEN: On May 6, 2004, Max and Sherry Greiner founded THE COMING KING FOUNDATION, as a 501c3 art museum for the purpose of building free Sculpture Prayer Gardens across the USA and world, based on the vision given to Max by God.  The first prototype garden has been built on 24.5 acres, on IH-10 in Kerrville, the artist’s hometown.  The free, spiritual art park draws over one hundred thousand visitors a year to the 1,930’ hill top in the Texas Hill Country. Thousands of visitors claim to have experienced the presence and power of God on this holy hill.

The Texas art garden is the only place in the world where the 77’7” contemporary sculpture called “The Empty Cross”TM can be seen.  Many people believe this artwork is the “Most Symbolic Cross Sculpture in the World”.  Many other Greiner monumental sculptures have been donated by Max and Sherry, for the glory of God and enjoyment of visitors. Two other professional artists, Beverly Paddleford of Wyoming, and David Broussard of Texas have donated their own monumental Christian sculptures to the non-profit garden.  The Garden Tabernacle features a “Path To Heaven”, with 16” Scripture Tiles that present 77 Bible verses, in multiple languages. The free spiritual park is open from 7:00 AM until midnight, 365 days a year. Tax deductible donations are appreciated, since the non-profit project is being built on faith in God, without debt.
