MONROE, OH (FOX19) - The pastor of Solid Rock Church in Monroe says a decision on a new "King of Kings" statue will be made within a month.

The original statue - also known as "Touchdown Jesus" - was destroyed in June by a lightning strike.

Pastor Lawrence Bishop says the new statue will cost between $250,000 and $650,000. He hopes to have a decision on the design of the statue within a month.

The original 62-foot tall and 40-foot wide statue weighed 16,000 pounds and cost about $250,000.
