God had spoken to Elder McCurry in 2007 about creating a mentoring group for men. However at that time, he didn’t feel prepared to launch such a project. So he spent the next few years preparing for the call. In early May 2018, a conversation occurred between Elder McCurry and one of his mentees, Minister Franklin Williams. During the conversation, Minister Williams confirmed this call by sharing a word he had received from God concerning Elder McCurry. Then on May 26, 2018, the time came and Beta Alpha Gamma Christian Fraternity was birthed. Elder proudly serves as Founder and Chief Executive Officer of this anointed and appointed organization which focuses on promoting productive godly character in men through leadership development, youth to adult mentorship programs, and fellowship activities
