“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”  Psalm 133:1

Like so many  in this community – and beyond – the sudden passing away of Pastor Rickey Laster shocked and saddened us all. 
  • Pastor Laster's leadership role with Black Men United and his dedicated community involvement earned him the heartfelt gratitude of countless community members, as well as many awards and recognition from public officials and private organizations over the years.
  • His position as Executive Director of the Commission on Gang Prevention and Intervention for the City of San Diego provided Pastor Laster another avenue to aid and support his beloved community. 
  • Our dear brother and friend Pastor Laster was a staunch and vigorous supporter of IAMBK CDC, and worked tirelessly alongside us to make our neighborhoods safer, and more decent places to live.
2018 marks the 20th year of Student Minister Hugh Muhammad’s relocation to this area as a servant of the people of San Diego.
  • Student Minister Muhammad has earned many awards and public recognition, as well as a seat on various advisory panels and advocate groups. His expertise includes criminal justice issues, education and health disparities, civic engagement, and much more, making him a much sought after resource for clergy, elected officials, community based organizations, and the citizen at large.
  • Pastor Laster and Student Minister Muhammad had forged a strong and lasting friendship based upon their love of God and mutual dedication to the upliftment of humanity.
  • At Pastor Laster’s Celebration Of Life services, Student Minister Muhammad’s words of remembrance reiterated his commitment to continue the work they had begun together.
At this the 6th Annual IAMBKCDC Fundraiser Gala, we intend to acknowledge our appreciation for the hard work and sacrifice of these two exceptional men, and the wonderful example their relationship demonstrated to the San Diego community. We will also acknowledge and honor other champions who have served our community well over the years, and introduce the Pastor Rickey T. Laster Scholarship Fund.

Seating will be limited; we encourage your RSVP to (619) 675-6484 or email us at
