This Pastor Is Camping Out On ROOF Of Church To Raise Money For Great Cause

This Virginia pastor is staging a camp-out to raise money for a 1,000 bike giveaway to Houston's children this Christmas. But Pastor Thomas McCracken of CommUNITY Church in Salem is not camping in the woods, he is on the roof of the Church! 

He has said that he would not eat anything until at least 250 bikes were donated, according to WDBJ. 

"I felt so strongly about this unique thing that I thought, we're gonna need something to stick out," he said. "So let's get the momentum going, draw some awareness, get some attention to this community. Let people see the crazy guy on the roof and it's for the children so I'm willing to do anything." 

As of Tuesday night, McCracken said on Facebook that they've raised about 18-thousand dollars. It’s not clear whether he’s had anything to eat yet! What a guy!
