If you’ve done any driving in Columbus, OH you’ve probably seen this lighthouse-looking thing on interstate 71 near the Morse Road exit.

Sometime after the latest Iraq war started, a sign went up on the “prayer tower” (which is supposedly “open 24 hours daily”, whatever that means) asking passers-by to:

Join Us now
in PRAYER for
pres BUSH and

I’ve always wondered about this place. Who are they? Why do they have a big lighthouse? Do they feel like their prayers have been answered? Most importantly: will they be praying for Barack Obama now that he is president?

So I tried to look the place up in Google but they don’t seem to have a website.

I was able to find a couple of references to them though – and it turns out the place is called:

Calvary Temple-Lighthouse Christian Academy School of Tomorrow

I tried to call them to see if 1. they have a website and 2. if they planned to update their sign so people wanting to pray for President Obama could stop by “24 hours daily” but the phone just rang and rang at least 20 times before I gave up.

Apparently the Schools of Tomorrow will not have websites or voicemail.

I’ll try to do a little more research on these guys later today – and I’ll let you know if I eventually get in touch with them.

  • Yeah, but Navy dude is a Cbus icon!

    I used to attend that church and go to that school. I havent been for 10 years. The prayer tower is connected to a room below that is the prayer room. The sailors name is Sam and he was their when I went to church and I guess still is. If you want to know anymore I will try and give as much details as possible.

  • I just want to know when the sign will be updated to support President Obama.

    An email address would be great.

  • Nathan

    Sad to say I attended the “School of Tomorrow” and the church itself. It is a very interesting place and I have not been there for about 10 years, but can still remember many things about it. If you have any questions please ask and I will try to inform the best I can.

    The sailor got knocked over in the wind.

  • Good! Maybe someone will fix the damn sign when they are up there righting the sailor.
