NEW YORK — Jamaal Bernard, associate pastor and chief of operations at the Christian Cultural Center megachurch in Brooklyn, New York, couldn't say enough about the church's founder and his father, A.R. Bernard Sr., as he talked about the importance of legacy for the next generation.
"Legacy from my father — it means a lot. And the reason why it means a lot and is dear to me is that his father denied him. He didn't have a father in his life and I understand that as men, there are four things we have to learn how to be. We have to learn how to be a son, a father, a husband and a grandfather," said Jamaal, addressing several hundred people who had gathered for Movement Day 2015 in New York City last Thursday.
