Rooftop Revelation Fundraiser Dinner
November 3, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$150
Chicago’s “Rooftop” Pastor Corey Brooks will share his position on family brokenness on November 3 at 6:30 p.m. at The Galleria in Fort Lauderdale.
Rooftop Pastor Corey 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. He often appears as a commentator on FOX News.
He established New Beginnings Church of Chicago in November 2000 in the heart of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhood – this opportunity was his first glimpse into the despair in the city of Chicago served as the catalyst to his ongoing efforts to date.
Pastor Brook’s efforts received national acclaim when he spent 94 days living on the roof of a rundown motel located across the street from the church. It had become a center of drugs, prostitution, and violence. Within three months he raised enough money to buy the building and tear it down. The land is now earmarked to be the location of a 23 million dollar state-of-the-art community center. The goal of the proposed community center is to offset violence, provide the support necessary to make the neighborhood a safer place, and give children the tools to reach for a brighter future.
