California congregation’s after-school ministry enables students to transcend poverty

While Christopher Hall’s route to success was not always smooth sailing, he says his life’s journey was boosted by a Rising TIDE. Rising TIDE (Train Individuals to Develop and Excel) is an afterschool ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Long Beach, California. Hall, who was born into poverty in an urban neighborhood, at age 33 owns two construction/restoration businesses, enjoys being a husband and father of three and relishes his new home.
