Ministries 4 Movement
Ministries 4 Movement was birth November 2009 through the organization of a march to combat and bring awareness to the overwhelming number of black on black crimes that lead to the nearly 50 homicides in the 43206 zip code. After Cecil Ahad, Dartangnan “OG Half” Hill, and Pastor Frederick LaMarr of the Family Missionary Baptist Church, met, and agreed that they all share the same vision and mission for helping the neighborhoods, where they live. The Mission of the Movement of “Bringing our people into the awareness of their total being of being body, soul and spirit, in the efforts of a combined community commitment of restoring structure, stability, support and security to every residence.”
The Church was set up as the meeting place. Where we would have monthly marches, every 1st Sunday promptly at 3pm. Marching through the designated route with the sound of the drums(old African tradition of call to assembly). Then church served as the headquarter for other community advanced programs.
We named our movement “Homicidal Pain!” because of the original area that we talked about of concern. From Parsons to Nelson Rd. /Mooberry to Frebis; In between these boundaries was known and named by the youth that lived in ‘HardLife’ as ���Homicidal pain” because of all the killing and pain that it’s caused through the years.
Our 1st march & Service was November 1,
2009 where about 200-300 people showed up, and participated.
With the theme “Gone too soon”. Since that March we have
continued to March every first Sunday and continue to draw
inclusion from National and Local government and advocacy
agencies such as Men for the Movement, National Association of
Black In Criminal Justice, Promise Made Promises Kept, My
Brothers Keepers, OSU Research & Ceasefire, National Center for
Urban Solutions, Academy of Urban Scholars, Urban GEMS,
Civic Associations, Court Personnel, Judges, Magistrates,
Prosecutors, establishing relationships to achieve our goals.
