Pay it Forward: Allen Chavis

Pay it Forward: Allen Chavis

Family and friends gathered in North Charleston to recognize Allen Chavis - a husband, father, professor, and pastor, dedicated to Charleston's homeless community. He walked out to a very big surprise.

Tessa: "We've heard great things about you. All the people who are congregated here if you will and of course your family is here with you today. Not only because they love you but because they wanna honor you for the things that you do. So Pastor Chavis, we are here to Pay It Forward."

Chavis was humble, at a loss for words, and tearful.

Family members say his life mission is very clear.

"I just have a heart for people," he said. "I love God and want to do what pleases him."

His wife and children agree that this blessing is well deserved.
