Free Easter Cookout – Changing A Generation Outreach Ministries

(Note: There is a link to the full gallery of pictures at the end of this entry)

On March 24, 2008 Changing A Generation Outreach Ministries hosted a free Easter Cookout for the community of Durham. Rev. Rodney Green heads up this ministry.



The main mission is to supply life’s essentials to the needy, provide shelter for the homeless and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They help people  through the entire year not just on holidays.

The King James Bible states the following:

Matthew 25:34-40 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Rev. Dr. Wesley Elam, Sr., Pastor of North East Baptist Church, helped to kick off the event by blessing the food.


Pastor Elam was supported by Roland Perry – Minister of Music, Mrs. Graham and other NEBC members.


A multitude of people came out to take part in this event. The lines seemed to continue without end. Coleman’s Catering provided the food for this occasion. There was a large grill preparing hotdogs and hamburgers to perfection. From within the red trailer Mr. Coleman served fried fish dinners.






There were activities for the children and the adults had a brief chance to relax.(Disclaimer:North East Baptist Church is not an endorser of Easter egg hunts. However, we do stand behind sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, helping the community and feeding people in need.)



By the end of the day the ministry had fed many hungry mouths. The children were excited and the picture below helps to convey the appreciation that many families felt.


A lot of people give to large charities. Unlike large national charities you can drive up on any day and see how your donations are helping people in need.

    It’s always a pleasure to see a community serve are less fortunate brothers/sisters , who are our neighbors as well. It truly emphasis Jesus’s love and grace of being a servant to everyone we encounter.

    Keep catching the moments and showing others life’s experiences by capturing a viewer’s heart, mind, and soul thru your pictures!

    This is truly amazing to see how awsome God is when I saw this immediately tears wailed up in my eyes because of the anointing I felt from this young man and no one gets the glory but God
