That's quite an impressive church.

What's in the attached buildings? Are they classrooms for a parochial school? Administrative offices and program rooms? Dorms and meeting rooms for a retreat center? I'm just wondering about the overall scope of this church's ministry and programs to have that kind of a complex.

Answer is:

I don't know. I was in Kansas City, and I saw this on a hill. No signs or anything. I was in a bit of a hurry, and didn't have time to ask.

Pretty cool Romanesque architecture. It's a little run-down looking, but someone is cutting the grass and tending to it.

I'd like to know, if anyone can tell me.

Looked like a seminary to me. Did a search on Kansas City seminary, and it appears there are several in or around K.C. The following pic is from Nazarene Theological Seminary.

They don't appear to be the same, but possibly another building on a campus or from another side. Either way, I would guess your pic is from a seminary or Bible college of some kind.

There are many beautiful churches in KC. I just spent a couple of days there, and I was struck by the many fine Romanesque churches.

The Catholic and Episcopal Cathedrals downtown are quite beautiful. My wife (who is Episcopalian) was a little disappointed to find no red door on the Episcopal one.

Where she grew up in New England it must have been customary to make the front door red.
