Not many pastors are asked to restart a church in one of their community’s most at-risk areas, but the Rev. Dallas Wilson is not just any Christian pastor.
He was briefly a Muslim as a teen, had joined a gang while growing up in New York City and landed in Charleston after he had a vision while was passing through the city in 1984.
That set in motion a series of events that eventually would culminate in him resuscitating St. John’s Chapel, a historic Episcopal chapel on Charleston’s East Side, a chapel that had been dormant for years.
