Episode 87: Helping Others Obtain Destiny… with Pastor Corey Brooks of Project H.O.O.D.

Can you imagine spending a cold winter’s night on a rooftop, in the windy city of Chicago? How about spending 100 cold winter nights on a rooftop in one of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods? What if the cause was so great that you felt called to do so? Well Pastor Corey Brooks felt that calling, and he is doing just that, for the second time!

Who is Pastor Corey Brooks and what is Project H.O.O.D.?
Pastor Corey B. Brooks, founder and Senior Pastor of New Beginnings Church of Chicago and founder and CEO of Project H.O.O.D. Communities Development Corporation has become a leading voice and presence in the fight against the violence gripping Chicago’s poorest neighborhoods.Β 
Don’t miss this conversation where Pastor Brooks and I discuss his second go round on the rooftop in a cold Chicago winter, encouraging CEOs and others to join him on the roof to raise funds for an incredible community activity and learning center. We talk about his inspiring vision of providing hope, rehabilitation, revitalization and a path towards dignity and independence for those who have all but thrown in the towel.
