A Southwest Philadelphia pastor incorporates HIV/AIDS into his ministry.
By the end of year Ford wants the church to have its own HIV/AIDS ministry, with church members trained in counseling and testing, in an effort to teach more people.
"The church should be a place where people feel comfortable and safe," Ford says. "And that's what we're here to doto be a place of refuge across all of life's issues."
