Before photographing this church on Easter Sunday for msnbc.com's Elkhart Project (http://elkhartproject.newsvine.com/), I wanted to go a couple days early and meet some people. Well, I ended up shooting the Good Friday service too. Since the Easter image is in our Holy Week slideshow (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30159067), I thought I'd share this one here in Photoblog.
Minister Cheryl Phillips, with microphone on right, leads what she calls the 'prophetic flow' at Ambassadors For Christ ministry during a youth service on Good Friday in Elkhart, Indiana. Phillips and other members of the ministry's main Chicago branch frequently join the Elkhart sister church to deliver "God's stimulus plan," intended to offer hope to a town facing nearly 20 percent unemployment.
