MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – A local church is helping to set a good example and spread positivity among young people in the community…
PrayerHouse Ministries in Mobile hosted a father-son workshop to show young men the importance of hard work and how to be productive.
The group of boys traveled to 15 different stations where they were able to see demonstrations by several different businessmen from all walks of life.
With the recent increase in gun violence and soaring crime rates, Pastor Billy King said he believes events like these can help young men have the positive impact they need.
“We’ve had so many murders of our young boys and a lot of them are under 25. It’s something we have to do and we have to be in a hurry to do it because they’re dying,” King said. . .
“We want to make sure we continue that, not just meet them once, but we want to keep in touch with them on a day-to-day basis,” he said.
It was the second time for the event, and King said he hopes to have one every four months.
He encourages other faith groups and organizations to also organize similar events to help the cause.
