In 1993 Scott Collins plants a church in the Tampa Bay Area, called Son Life Fellowship.

On December 15, 2007, we had the pleasure of unveiling this wondrous work. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all of you who worked so hard to make the event happen!
Simply put, the ‘Sermon on the Wall’ is a painted mural depicting the life of Jesus Christ. The project began in 2003 by founding members of world renowned art studio Art Inherited Inc. Completed in December 2007, this masterpiece stands at 70ft wide and over 26ft tall. For over four years, these master artists poured their hearts and talents into creating one of the most visually stunning representations of Christ in modern history.
After four years of work the mural depicting the life of Christ on the Sanctuary wall at Northwest Community Church was completed. For more information on this extraordinary painting visit Sermon On The Wall….
