"No Boundaries, Where The Church Won't Go"

Director: Virgil Roundtree.
Filmed Edited & Produced By Virgil L. Roundtree Sr. No Boundaries is a 1 hour documentry featuring Pastor Timothy D. Walker Sr. knowned as "The Horn Blowin' Preacher" who was called out of the pulpit in order to minister to those who would never walk into a church. Not only has he ministered in church, but he also goes into clubs, lounges & even on the street corners. Pastor Timothy is not afraid to cross those boundaries to reach the lost at any cost. The documentry also exposes the gap between the church and the community and what the church must do in order to bridge the gap. We are losing our communities to gang violence, drugs & murder every day; God is not pleased with the church. My mom often said "when you know better do better".
