Tent shelters pastor during rooftop fundraiser



Pastor David Hibbison, New Life in Christ Ministries, Clearwater, took to the roof on the northern end of Towne Centre in Monticello to increase public awareness of how homelessness affects those coming out of prisons, jails and treatment centers. Bullseye Properties, owner of the commercial office and retail center, sponsored the weekend fundraising effort. Hibbison headed to the roof Thursday, June 25, at 9 p.m. and slept in a well-equipped tent. He descended from his rooftop home Saturday afternoon. Hibbison is pastor each Sunday for Change of Heart Church, which gathers in the Bridge Room at the Monticello Community Center. (Photo by Tim Hennagir)
