BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — A church in Boynton Beach has opened up their own coronavirus testing site free to the public.

On Monday, St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Boynton Beach hosted a drive-thru and walk-up testing site.

Pastor Jovan Davis said it is in the church’s DNA to help amid crisis.

“I believe that this is exactly what the church should be doing. This is a part of missionary. Ministry by definition is meeting the needs of people and right now, this is a need,” said Davis.
