“a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece”
First Christian Church was founded in 1952. Because of the rapid growth of the congregation the church moved from central Phoenix to its present location in north-central Phoenix. The church continued to grow and needed to build again. The search began for a design for the new Worship Center. In 1949, the Southwest Christian Seminary in Phoenix had commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a Classical University. The drawings for this University were completed and made public in 1950. Drawings included a chapel, administrative buildings, seminar rooms, library, Greek theatre, faculty homes, and were designed for eighty acres. Because the Seminary ceased its operation, the University was never built.
