Higher Ground With Billy Hallowell

"Be committed. ... Trust God all the way." Those are the two powerful lessons Pastor Corey Brooks learned while camping out 345 days in a tent atop a frigid roof on Chicago's South Side.

A preacher, who has been on a mission to raise $35 million to build a transformational community center in the heart of Chicago, has simply refused to give up on what he believes God laid on his heart.

"There are times when you just want to give up and throw in the towel, but when you are convinced that God is giving you a vision to do something, you gotta be convinced that He'll also give you the provisions," Brooks told the "Edifi With Billy Hallowell Podcast. "And so I have learned that God, if he gives you a vision, He will give you the provisions."

Brooks, who runs Project H.O.O.D., an organization that seeks to empower and equip individuals and families, has already raised $28.5 million of his goal. Listen to him share his incredible journey.
