The Rev. R.A. Vernon knew something had to be done when two mothers approached him to conduct funerals for their children and he couldn’t accommodate them because his church had no building.
“I was heartbroken that I couldn’t help them,” said Vernon, founder and senior pastor of The Word Church. “We live to help families in times of crisis. We don’t ask if you’re a member, we just do it. We can better serve the people who need us, if we have our own building.”
