VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A three day event to benefit young men kicks-off in Valdosta Thursday.  It's called 300 Men of Valor: A Call to Worship.

Thursday through Saturday, renowned pastors will preach at 9 AM and 7 PM daily at Valdosta High School's Performing Arts Center. Organizers say the sermons will encourage men to step up as role models and help struggling young men lead moral lives.

Everyone is welcome, and a sign-up sheet will be provided for anyone who wants a mentor.

"We must recognize the problems with our young people. Recognize the problems with the drugs and some of the things that are going on in our community," says Pastor Stevee Johnson, who will speak on Saturday.  "We're calling men to come together to say 'Hey, we see the issues in the community and we want to do something about it."

Pastor Vincent Brown adds, "A young man needs to see another man leading the way and that's what we really want to impact--the young men, by being examples."

The event concludes on Saturday with performances by the Valdosta State University Mass Choir and the Christian singing group, King. For more information, call 229-249-0205.
