Church is about more than preaching and singing, says Bishop Hezekiah Walker. It’s also about meeting people’s most basic needs, right where they live.

That’s why he’s heading up an $80 million project to build affordable housing in a Brooklyn community.

Walker is a senior pastor of Love Fellowship Tabernacle in Brooklyn, New York. He built the church in a low-income neighborhood because he wanted to help people.

Now he is expanding that vision to help those in the surrounding community.

Earlier this week, he posted a picture on Instagram announcing that he signed a contract to build a new housing development in the borough.

“OH MY GOD! I Just left a meeting and completed an $80M deal with NYC to build affordable housing and a brand new church on my property in Brooklyn. I’m completely blown away,” he wrote on the social media site.
