How-To Build an Awesome Minecraft Church [Tutorials]

How to build a Minecraft church 21

After seeing these awesome Minecraft churches, I had plenty of inspiration to build one of my own. :D However, building awesome structures in Minecraft is not always as easy as it looks.

LEGO Tower Reaches New World Record

Hungary LEGO Tower

First, it was the LEGO tower built in Chile back in 2008. Then, in 2011, Brazil topped the tallest LEGO tower at 102.33 feet — only ten inches taller than the one built in Chile.

If you are between the ages of 20 and 55, you probably have some kind of memories with LEGOs. For some like myself, that was the majority of your pre-teen years, making cities, castles, and sci-fi scenarios. I do not discredit those under 20 with playing with LEGOs, but the invention of Minecraft probably had a bigger impact for their lives with construction and imagination.
