INDIANAPOLIS - A local couple took on a project to help kids off the streets -- without any investors or financial help.
Alphonso Owensby and his fiancee Stacya Harrison have worked for more than two years to turn a theater into a community outreach center that they call Gospel After 5.
Gospel After 5, located inside Washington Square Mall, provides weekly services on Sundays, but is also a place to celebrate life and music with others.
Owensby said he was influenced at a young age by his mother and father’s love for the Lord and the music he would hear on Sundays.
Gospel After 5 is not about time, but about the fivefold ministry.
Owensby wanted to offer a place where everyone would be safe and enjoy entertainment like comedy, poetry, readings and a host of musical performances.
"Get away from the hustle and bustle of street life and come and enjoy a clean, safe atmosphere with no violence and no guns," Owensby said.
Owensby said he is not trying to take anyone away from their current places of worship, but rather offer an alternative to those who feel like there is nowhere to go.
