Group Holds Leadership Conference

Posted:

Danville, VA-- People gathered on Sunday afternoon at the Danville Beulah Baptist Church for a leadership conference.

The event was put together by Word on the Streets Inner City Ministries.The group mentors young men in the Danville area.

They brought in several speakers to give inspiration and encouragement. They had seminars today on entrepreneurship and finding employment, and had job training for ex-felons.

"We're going to help them find viable employment,"event organizer, Rev. David Fuller said. "That's been one of our initiatives and we've been real successful with that. Probably 75 percent of the people who could not get jobs if they come through our ministry and come through our programs, then they're able to get those jobs."

This was the group's second annual conference. The theme was empowerment through education.
