Local hero Pastor Phil Jackson and the Fire House Community Art Center
Pastor Phil has been a leading voice in North Lawndale in addressing the social and spiritual needs of the community's young people... especially its teens. A visionary, Pastor Phil, as he is affectionally known around the community, has developed the Hip Hop Ministry for the Lawndale Community Church.
His latest project, the Fire House Community Art Center, is designed to be a venue for all forms of artistic expression. Such a venue will allow the community's teens to have a safe place to perform, for spoken word, for dance, for music, for the visual arts, and all other creative endeavors that they can envision. And, as you can see, Pastor Phil knows everybody.
