On Friday, a construction crew from Tate General Contractors was pouring concrete pillars. The chapel will stand over 50 feet tall, contain over 8,000 square feet and seat 550 people. The expected completion date is June of '09. Steve Manley, CEO of Universal Asset Management, which operates a plant at the nearby Walnut Ridge Regional Airport, committed over $1 million toward its construction.
