PLNU Chapel: Winner of 2020 Gold Nugget Judges Special Award

We are honored that the Lyle and Grace Prescott Memorial Prayer Chapel on the Point Loma Nazarene University campus is recognized as an Award of Merit Winner in the PCBC Gold Nugget Award Competition, receiving a Judges Special Award of Excellence!

Inspiration of the chapel design comes from the natural surroundings on site and the spiritual significance within the space. The chapel is an academic anchor of the campus and a physical reminder of their ideology. Simplicity with pure lines and forms were used as a means to capture the true essence of the space.

Talent Spotlight – Vincent Mudd


“A sense of betterment … always looking to seek perfection knowing it is the journey not the destination.”
“Legacy International Center for MCWE. Why? We were able to tangibly fulfill the life -long inspired vision of Dr. Cerullo and his congregation of over 25 million faithful believers. In spite of severe medical challenges during the Entitlement process and the 30 month Construction Process, on October 29th 2020 he was able to celebrate his 90th birthday in his completed Legacy International Center.”
“The Human Cycle by Sri Michelle Chapman (aka the Law of Social Cycles). Opened my eyes to how similar all civilizations are throughout human history and how we go through 3 predictable basic cycles – with one replacing the other in succession.”
In addition to being our Talent Spotlight this week, Vincent was also featured on the front page of the Union Tribune local section this week as “Someone San Diego Should Know”.
