Moultrie - - A Moultrie pastor is taking a unique approach at raising money for children in his church. Call it a sky-high fundraiser.
Bryant Brown, children's pastor for Lakeside Assembly of God is camping out in the sky for a week. He's trying to raise $5,000 for his church youth group.
People driving down Veteran's Parkway can see Brown with his huge signs and crane. He plans to stay up there the entire week.
"My tent is where I'm sleeping at night. I've got all kinds of things in there to take care of time. I got a laptop so I can watch movies at night," Brown says.
This is a nationwide fundraiser for the Assemblies of God churches. It's called Up in the Air for Kids.
Brown says it's not too bad sleeping outside. He says his church members are nice enough to bring him food.
