COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A Columbia minister gathered on Saturday with several to hold a day of prayer at the state house.

Organizers say they prayed for South Carolina, the country, as well as men and women. Donny Faust says he started the event a year ago after he felt called to make more of a difference in the community.

Aside from prayer, Faust says he wanted to use today as a mentorship opportunity for young men.

"Because the Bible tells us we are to train our young men, teach them, show them how to be men, how to be fathers, how to be leaders and if we don't do it, nobody else will."

Faust is a minister at the Potter's Christian Life Center. Faust says he plans on continuing the event next year.
