In 2017 this is still the Daytona Drive-In Christian Church. An August 1, 2017 article in the NY Times includes a short but nicely shot and edited video documentary. If this link doesn’t work, go to the Times site and search on “Drive-In Jesus”.

On both Google and Bing Maps, the property is fully recognizable as a former drive-in, with concessions building and many of the speaker poles still remaining.
