A local church is hosting a "Unity Crusade" for the remainder of this week. Building on the success of last year's "We ALL Matter" Revival, local pastors have come together in an effort to unite people from across the riverbend.  Uniting denominations, social classes and skin color, many spiritual leaders are coming together to host a tent crusade.  Every night at 7 p.m. until Friday large crowds are expected at 2nd Chances Community Church on North Alby in Godfrey.

Jim Kiel, the pastor of 2nd Chances told the Big Z why the event was organized:
