Paying it Forward

Adrian Crawford (AC) is a staff member at Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries (CALM) as well as a student at PVCC.  He plans to attend Virginia State in the fall.  What is special about AC’s story is he grew in the Prospect neighborhood, the heart of the community where CALM exists to live and serve.

From a very young age AC was involved in the after school tutoring, evening mentoring programs, and anything else that was available to him through the ministry.  Through these programs he benefited greatly from the many different mentoring relationships along the way, but none like the relationship he had with Edgar.  Edgar met regularly with AC, often taking him and some of his friends on trips.  He challenged AC to become a man of responsibility and showed him the importance of giving back to the community. 

Through the ministry and the relationships it provided, AC is now in the position to give back to the community, as he did last summer for the middle school boys and currently does for the tutoring program at Johnson Elementary School.
