Talk about a faith walk. Chicago pastor Corey Brooks has already lived on a rooftop, so walking across the country is not that much of a stretch. It’s all for a good cause.

Brooks, the pastor of New Beginnings Church in Chicago spent three months living on the rooftop of his church earlier this year to bring attention to his goal of creating a community center out of an abandoned hotel across the street. When Tyler Perry heard about it, the filmmaker donated the final $100,000 Brooks needed to make his goal of $450,000. The hotel has since been demolished.

 

Listen to the pastor talk with the crew about his walk against violence.
