(Black PR Wire) In support of its Rites of Passage Program, Community Reconstruction Housing, Inc. will host a Gospel Concert.  Themed to bring forth “Unity in the Community: Choirs in Concert for a Cause,” the star-studded event takes place on Sunday, April 23, 2017 beginning at 6 p.m. at Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, located at 890 NW 15th Street in Pompano Beach, Florida. The concert is FREE of charge and open to the public.

Come and experience a night of joyful, soulful and heavenly bliss with music provided by: Pastor Avery Jones and the Spirit of Life Choir. Their latest CD, Tis So Sweet, takes you into the presence of God and has the power to save and deliver. In addition, New Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church Mass Choir; Koinonia Worship Center Mass Choir and Male Choir; and Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church Mass Choir and Male Choir will be sharing God’s word in music.

Some of Florida’s finest ministers, including Dr. Robert Stanley and his wife, Alene Stanley of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church; Dr. Eric H. Jones, Jr. Founder and Senior Pastor of Koinonia Worship Center and Village; and Pastor Marcus D. Davidson Senior Pastor of New Mount Olive Baptist Church, will share nuggets of God’s powerful words to the guests.  

Although free and open to the public, the funds raised from the sponsorship solicitations and offering taken will be used for the prevention and intervention programming at Cypress Run Education Center in the City of Pompano Beach.

“Minority boys are over-represented in the juvenile justice system and under-perform in school,” explains Elder Mathes Guice, President/CEO of Community Reconstruction Housing, Inc. “Without our attention, our boys are at heightened risk for involvement in the criminal justice system, academic failure, and poverty.  This concert benefit will raise funds to expand and sustain the Rites of Passage at Cypress Run Education Center, focusing on the needs of children who have been expelled from their home school due to poor behavior and academic performance and are now at heightened risk to drop out.”

The Community Reconstruction Housing, Inc. is determined not to give up on our children. The organization seeks to raise $100,000 to expand programming to meet the needs of boys and girls that are necessary to prevent delinquency and promote graduation. Supporters will be recognized on promotional materials and may be eligible for select seating, and a pre-concert meet and greet.
