Heeding a call which has led him from football to faith, one time defensive back for the San Diego Chargers Miles McPherson, today the senior minister of the Rock Church in San Diego, California, and members of his Miles Ahead organization will defend those less fortunate during an upcoming trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica. From April 24 through May 5, 2008, 300 volunteers will conduct health screenings, sports clinics, deaf interpretation workshops and help to reconstruct a local elementary school in conjunction with Jamaica Broilers Group’s 50th anniversary celebrations and evangelical events held in Mandeville, Montego Bay and Kingston.
The former football star’s journey to Jamaica will be one of both spiritual fulfillment and personal growth as he visits the land where both his father and grandparents were raised. Those interested in helping the humanitarian cause can join with Miles McPherson at Montego Bay’s Dump Up Beach on May 2nd and 3rd.
