Beyond building a functional and beautiful house of worship, we are building a landmark of faith reflecting God’s presence, a magnificent Icon of God’s love and light for all to behold.
~ Metropolitan Alexios
Nestled along Florida’s emerald coast this Orthodox jewel stands as a testament to the commitment of its parish of less than one hundred families, working together with CJK DESIGN. Their twelve year journey, lead by Fr. Constantine Mersinas, brought them to a Vision / Master Plan with a new church temple as its focus, and its Heart and Soul.
With a modest construction cost of $1.6 million, their mandate and efforts made the best use of their existing resources while taking advantage of their site’s proximity to a major highway. This highly visible building’s inspiration is rooted in 8th Century Byzantine genealogy while still meeting the emerging and growing needs of its parish. With such an array of strengths and the beauty and grace of its presence, it is no wonder that visitors are attracted with great frequency.
