Pastor Sees Lot as Key to Youth Safety
Syracuse, NY -- Pastor Nebraski Carter is taking his calling outside the walls of the Living Water Church of God in Christ.
"We don't have any place for youth to come and do work and try to get them on the right path," said Carter. "We have a lot of violence here."
Carter is trying to change that by building a youth community center on a rundown lot his church purchased from city for $1,150. The purchase was approved by the Common Council.
Living Water is one of several churches to purchase lots in the hopes of turning the run-down properties into places that will rejuvenate their communities.
Carter is currently trying to raise funds to build the community center.
