Aside from the village and marketplace, there is a movie theater where people can step inside to take in a video and a place for refreshments and to purchase souvenirs.
Capernaum Village has been in existence since 2008 and has steadily grown each year, Lane said.
“We try to change things and make it better,” she said. “As God provides we do what we can.”
While she has used the village for film projects, Lane said it is mostly used for the live productions.
“I really was praying, because we do some film work and I wanted people to go back in time and see how Jesus lived,” she said. “I wanted to recreate that. I felt like God had put that in my heart to make that happen. So that's what I did. I wanted to build a set. That is really what the purpose of this was for, but it turned into a lot more.”
She is especially proud of the 13-statue garden featuring the works of the late sculptor Yansim Pak, an area Korean man whom a family friend of Lane's found and began funding his work until Pak died. Pak gave the statues to Lane's family friend, who in turn gave them to Lane.
“A friend of our family's was driving by this man's house one day and he had all these statues in his backyard, in a little, small backyard, and he was making these statues,” Lane said. “God had given him a vision for it.”
When offered the statues, Lane said at first she didn't know what to do with them.
“I prayed about it and decided this is what Mr. Pak would have wanted for the garden and so we put them in a garden,” she said.
Besides the gardens and village, a large, beautiful brick home with accommodations for up to 36 people sits on a hill above the village that is available as a retreat, especially for churches wanting to rent the facilities.
