In 1971 a prayer group began meeting in the home of Otis Moorman in the West End of Beaumont, Texas. Large numbers of high school students filled the home and the group eventually moved to a coffee house on the Lamar University campus. The Lamar group was sponsored by Calder Baptist Church and supported by the campus Baptist Student Union (BSU).
Music groups played on weekends and many lives were changed through this group of dedicated individuals. Members of Brothers and Sisters In Christ (BASIC) traveled and worked in ministries in Houston, Galveston, Boston, Atlanta, and Israel.
Similar activities were going on throughout the United States. Young people were excited about serving Christ and carried their message to the streets, often while mainstream churches looked on.
This short documentary was narrated and produced by Jimmy Becka, a bass player for one of the BASIC House music groups and a television writer/producer (UT-TV featuring Dr. James "Red" Duke) and broadcaster for KSBJ Radio in Houston.
Thanks to the Moorman and Rogers families for their support for a generation of young people. Also, thanks to Brother Wray from the Lamar BSU. The generations to come will be blessed by their actions.
