George Floyd Left a Gospel Legacy in Houston

posted on June 10, 2020

Christianity Today‘s Kate Shellnutt reports that George Floyd was an active volunteer with Christian ministries in his Texas community. She writes that “in Houston’s Third Ward, they know Floyd for how he lived for decades—a mentor to a generation of young men and a ‘person of peace’ ushering ministries into the area.” Shellnutt writes, “Floyd spoke of breaking the cycle of violence he saw among young people and used his influence to bring outside ministries to the area to do discipleship and outreach, particularly in the Cuney Homes housing project, locally known as ‘the Bricks.'” He had moved to Minnesota around 2018 for a job with a Christian work program.
