Before moving to Minneapolis through a Christian work program, George Floyd spent almost his entire life in the southern part of Houston’s Third Ward, a historically Black neighborhood in southeast Houston where he is known as “Big Floyd,” a community leader and “OG” in the area.
So when Patrick “P.T.” Ngwolo, Pastor of the Christian church Resurrection Houston, wanted to expand his ministry’s involvement in the ward’s Cuney Homes housing projects, it was Floyd who helped pave the way. Through Floyd’s help, Ngwolo was able to hold church service, benefit concerts, and community baptisms in the neighborhood.
VICE News’ Dexter Thomas spoke with Ngwolo about Floyd’s ministry legacy in Houston and heard intimate live performances from the Resurrection Houston band.
