Introducing The Faith Cross
The Faith Cross is made using hand-selected cuts of repurposed wood, bonded together with the strongest wood glue available. It features an Empty Cross in the center to represent the Risen Savior, Jesus Christ, who will return one day. Each Faith Cross is a unique, hand-made, one-of-a-kind reminder of Christian Faith.
There is significance to the dimensions of the Empty Cross, as described below:
The THICKNESS of the Empty Cross is 3". The number 3 represents the Trinity, identified as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; Jesus prayed 3 times in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest; He was placed on the cross at the 3rd hour of the day, and 3 hours of darkness covered the land as He suffered on the cross.
The WIDTH of the Empty Cross is 9". The number 9 conveys finality; it was the 9th day that the Roman Centurion Cornelius was told to contact Peter; Christ died on the 9th hour, and He appeared alive to hundreds of people on 9 separate occasions.
The HEIGHT of the Empty Cross is 12". The number 12 is one of the foundations of Scripture; 12 symbolizes God's power and authority; the nation of Isreal wa divided into 12 Tribes; Christ called 12 men to bear witness to what he did and to spread the good news of the Gospel to the entire world.
Meet the Artist
The artist behind The Faith Cross is Tom Campbell, Navy Veteran ('70-'76), and Sunday School Teacher, who currently resides in Wilmington, North Carolina with his dog, Watson.
As a young man, Tom spent a great deal of his spare time building furniture and various goods out of his home-based woodworking shop for his wife of forty-seven years, Jo, and their loved ones. As life marched on, however, his time soon became filled with raising their four children and running a successful Computer Repair and Programming business. His artistic aspirations had to take a back seat to his obligations and duties.
Tom lost his beloved wife to cancer in August, 2021. Around that same time, he passed down the reigns of his computer business to his son, Jon, and officially retired. Since then, he has begun to devote himself to his artistic aspirations again. He converted his garage into a woodworking shop, and the idea for The Faith Cross was born.
