While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," well-known Baldwin brother Stephen revealed that he is connecting with a church in New York City to start a Bible study that will help young people who are lost, depressed or confused.
"I just found in my heart that what young people are seeking more than ever is to be challenged with an authentic encounter and experience with truth. That's what I believe young people are looking for," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
