After spending over three months camped atop of an abandoned motel,Pastor Corey descends triumphantly having accomplished his mission. He set out to raise $450,000 to buy an abandoned motel and convert it into a community center. He did so with small donations from people in Chicago and across the nation, as well as a large donation made by film director Tyler Perry. Perry donated the final $98,000 Brooks needed to purchase the property.
His tears, bravery, and sacrifice paid off. Congratulations to Pastor Brooks and the New Beginning Church Family for fighting the violence in their community. If you’d like to donate to this cause, please go to www.projecthood.org. Check out my interview with Pastor Brooks below.
