(Calling On Brave & Smart People In America To Work With Me In Turning GRCAM Into Reality In 2017)

There is a great burden on me to connect with other like minded business people and spiritual minded people to work with me in advancing the Kingdom by empowering our inner-cities starting in Chicago. I have been in prayer concerning how we can further the greatness of this work in Chicago. God has put a few things in my spirit to share with those who will become business partners with me and who will be devoted to the cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. I believe these initiatives, if embraced, will be to our advantage.

Theme: For 2017 “Our Inner City Youth Matters/ Restoring Kingdom Commitment” Matthew 6:10

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement was created for me to connect with other spiritual like minded individuals from across the United States and from around the globe in unison to prepare for spiritual warfare by Setting the Captives Free through God’s holy word while meeting the basic needs of the communities we will serve. GRCAM is the fastest growing virtual Christian organization online. I’m using social media to reach Millennials an entire NEW generation of Believers from around the world.

For 25 years people online and offline has refuse to take my cause serious now since President elect Donald Trump has won the election once he starts cutting entitlement programs from the middle class, working class, and so called underclass people especially black people maybe then Black America will take a second look at my plan and work with me in putting my ideas into action. Once my organization is established in Chicago I will declare war on this Willie Lynch mentality within the black culture.

Urban violence is a moral issue and I refuse to just sit back and watch my people being slaughtered in the streets of Chicago. I want everyone in America to know my story and I encourage those of you who are concerned about my cause (Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos) by purchasing my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition. The proceeds will go towards me hiring qualified people to assist me with the daily operations of my Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute.

I have used social media as my platform to spark a movement of believers that are committed to seeing the gospel saturated in the Earth. There is a lack of resources to people who live in urban areas. We are passionate about seeing the urban church strengthened, bridging the gap between biblical truth and the urban context, and raising up urban leaders. the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will used the platform we’ve been given by God to spark this new movement of believers that are committed to seeing the gospel saturated throughout the world.
