Man Up! Guest Speaker- Willie Alfonso
The Men’s Ministry at South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce Willie Alfonso, Chaplain of the New York Yankees, will be speaking on Father’s Day weekend, Saturday, June 15, at 9 a.m. We will be serving breakfast, so reservations are required at southbaychurchli.org/manup. There’s no charge.
Willie was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the product of an abusive and alcoholic father. “The first thing I can remember [in life] is him beating up my mother. At three or four years of age, I remember him taking an axe and tearing up the house,” said Willie. At the age of eleven he was forced to leave home when his mother chose to turn him away after he defended her during a beating from his then crazed and drunken father.
Willie spent years living on the streets of Brooklyn. In 1972, at the age of eighteen, he married his wife, Nancy, and continued to abuse drugs until Palm Sunday, 1981, when he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. “My father used to tell me, ‘You’ll never amount to nothin,’ but God tells me I’m special,” said Willie. His story is both heartbreaking and inspiring!
“Willie’s story is proof that a hopeless, desperate, broken life can be totally turned around by God,” said Martin Hawley, senior pastor.
Join the guys at South Bay to hear the heartbreaking and inspiring story of Willie Alfonso, Chaplain of the New York Yankees, live and in-person.
