If every chapel was nestled in a beautiful natural setting like this I'd might be more inclined to believe. Beautiful chapel worth the stop even for those non religious types.

This is the third Chapel in Arkansas that I've been to that looks like this. They truly are amazing and just absolutely beautiful. I try to stop him every time I'm in the area. Very peaceful. Would definitely make for a very beautiful wedding.

The chapel is an architectural masterpiece set in the middle of an Ozark woodland. It provides a beautiful space for contemplation and worship. A must see.

This is a beautiful man made building. We sat inside for about 30 mins and enjoyed some peaceful music and admired the building. I would recommend taking some time to go and enjoy this attraction.

Only takes a small amount of time to pull off and visit the Chapel. It is well-worth the stop. The chapel is completely glass and sits in a lovely wooded setting. It is a truly inspiring story of one man's desire to provide a peaceful setting in which to worship.
