Black Westchester wants to spotlight individuals in the community who are doing great things that we thing everyone needs to know. Those who put in work, do that thankless services with no notoriety, just because they see a void that needs to be filled. Our first spotlight is on Rev. Rick Boreland, who started a church in his barbershop, Hair He Is as 414 E. Third Street (just off the corner of Columbus Avenue).
At Boreland’s Westchester Worship Center, you can get shaved and saved at the same place. Rev. Rick started the church services in his barbershop in May 2014, to reach the youth he mentors and those who shy away from the traditional church building. The service is young, hip, contemporary and innovated, and never more than one-hour-long. Despite changing the culture of the traditional black church, it’s important to Boreland to sure to stay close to the scriptures. Check out Westchester Worship Center, every Sunday morning from 11am- 12 noon.
