A Tulsa pastor took to the air this weekend, and says he's staying for a whole week. Woodlake Assembly of God's Children's Pastor Matt Payne will live on this platform, 40 feet high, for eight days, rain or shine to raise money for several children's charities.

He says he's going to new heights with his platform, which is ten feet higher than last year. And his fundraising goal is higher too. Matt Payne: "$40,000 is a lot of money and it's a goal that I felt God placed in my heart and I'm confident that if it's his goal, he'll make sure it happens."

A motorcycle ride and a bike show also helped raise money for the event.

The platform is located near 71st and Mingo.
