NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Dozens of teens filled Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church on their first step in a long rehabilitation process.
They gathered as part of the Gentleman and Not Gangsters, or G.A.N.G, program, which had its orientation Wednesday evening.
“It’s an extensive 12-week program designed to change the mindset of the young men that are in the program,” explained Bishop Marcus Campbell
The program is a joint effort between Mt. Carmel Missionary and and Metro-Nashville’s juvenile system.
The orientation, though, is the first crucial step.
“We like to let them know what to be looking forward to, and what we’re not gonna have for them in the class,” said Campbell.
