Drone Cam: Perfecting Church Rises From The Ashes Of A Detroit Neighborhood

February 27, 2013, 2:44 PM

Harry Arnold takes his drone cam to the east side of 7 Mile and Woodward, where it surveys the new Perfecting Church that is under construction at the edge of a neighborhood filled with burned-out homes and vacant space. On the west side of Woodward is Palmer Park and the mansions of Palmer Woods. 

The Perfecting Church’s future home is a 5,000-seat mega-church,  plus a 500-seat wedding chapel, meeting rooms that can seat 1,000 people, a 1000-space parking garage, a baptism pool large enough to accommodate a whole family, classrooms, administrative offices, a bookstore and a kitchen.

The church is headed by Pastor Marvin Winans, a member of the singing Winans' family and a chart-topping gospel singer.

The music is "People Get Ready," by Alicia Keys.

Arnold operates iTVDetroit, which generally shoots videos for developers, construction companies, real estate firms, golf courses, attorneys, federal, state and local governments and other clients. He can be reached at
