William’s Commissioned Painting “Oneness” & 26 Feet Tall Stained Glass Installations at the Phenomenal Salvation Army Kroc Center in Camden

The Salvation Army Kroc Center is now open in Camden and what a gift this is to the city and people of Camden! The Kroc Center is 120,000 square feet on a 24 acre campus in Cramer Hill. This awesome center literally sits on the location that formerly was a huge landfill. The Kroc Center team have transformed the land and will continue to transform lives in Camden. So many people and organizations worked together to have the Kroc Center be a beautiful jewel for those in Camden. What a testimony this is of how with God, all things are possible!

For the opening weekend on Oct. 3-5, William’s commissioned painting “Oneness” was installed. Also, the 26 feet tall stained glass installations of Oneness were complete in the chapel. Enjoy the photos above of the art.
