Storefront Churches

The front exterior of a corner building on a city block. The building number “1720” hangs above the door, which has a large cross on it. Storefront church parishioners of all age sing and dance to a live band.
In an impoverished Washington, D.C. neighborhood just blocks from the White House, unemployment, homelessness and violence are part of everyday life. But for some residents, strength and salvation can be found in a tiny storefront church—a former corner store turned spiritual sanctuary. 

LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN follows four parishioners over the course of one year as they work to change not only their own lives, but also their community.
