#041 Precious Lives: Milwaukee Church Moves from Prayer to Action to Prevent Violence

Oct 20, 2015

24-year-old Isiah Johnson was a victim of a shooting not once, but twice in one year.

Each time, hours after leaving the hospital he went straight to All People’s Church in Milwaukee’s Harambee neighborhood. He stood before the congregation and asked for help.

In response the congregation assembled a men’s group to help Isiah find his purpose, and admitted that prayer alone won’t keep Isiah safe.
