A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR TAURUS

 

 

The recent events in our nation was a wake up call for me. I've been inspired to step fully into who God called me to be. To do more in my community, more to empower young people, more for the cause of justice, more to bring the city together, more to ignite Benton Harbor to reach our potential as a community. RISE UP BENTON HARBOR is our effort to be more and do more for the people. The time if now!
