We have a team of men in my church who decided to go out and make different in urban cities in the metro cities of : Philadelphia, Chester Pa and Camden NJ. We are from Christian Stronghold Church @ 4701 Lancaster ave., where Dr. Willie Richardson is senior Pastor. The name of our team is called "Urban Soul Warriors", we go out into the high crime areas of these cities on Friday or Saturday nights from 7pm-11pm we
share the gospel with these men, in hopes of bringing them to a saving knowledge of
Jesus. We believe that church has neglected these forgotten people. Maybe out of
fear or just simple not concerned about them. Our presents has seemed to be more
effective then the presents of policemen . yours Harry Ruff
