Christian rap artist and speaker Michael Peace will be making several appearances in Owensboro this week offering strategies to help young people and adults avoid substance abuse and crime. Peace is from New York and uses his own history of drug abuse as part of his story when relating to young people.
Michael will have a full schedule of events while he’s here in Owensboro. This afternoon, he will be part of a closed panel discussion with city officials at 4 pm in the Daviess County Courthouse basement. Tonight, he will perform a free concert at Church Alive (4th and Carter Road) at 7pm.
“Michael Peace was one of the original Christian rappers and was very popular in the 90s” said Church Alive Youth Pastor Derek Ford. “The concert was originally going to be at the park but then they asked if we would host it. He will perform and give his testimony as part of the concert tonight.”
The rest of the week Michael will be speaking at Apollo High School, Gateway Academy, Dismas, Day Treatment, the Owensboro Family YMCA, and the Daviess County Jail.
Friday Night Michael will be at the “Recover Rally” to be held on the courthouse lawn at 6pm. Sunday he will speak at Church Alive’s 10:30am service and the 6pm service at Belleview Baptist.
