Sacramento Church Aims To Curb Youth Gang Violence

Quote

At Calvary Christian Center in the middle of Del Paso Heights, a youth conference talks about stopping the tide of violence, gangs and drugs. They're carrying the message through what young people can identify with-- rap music with a positive message.

"A lot of this is just over color or over a street. I don't think it does a lot of good to kill each other over colors and streets," said Chad Martin, Calvary Christian Center attendee.

The event was spearheaded by Pastor Phillip Goudeaux, who wants this conference to be more than about music. The youth are also attending workshops on economic empowerment in areas such as real estate investment and job preparation.

Some of these kids here have never been in a church.  I bet they may not even know a simple story in the bible like David and Goliath, teaching them about God with music they relate to is so wise.  More Churches should try to reach all youths, in every area.
