Who am I? Merely a considerably seasoned man who may have ministered through the genre of rap for over two decades.
What we should know is the fact that most folk, in church, dislike rap for your church. The primary two causes of this are:
- Too Loud - the church just doesn't look after the youth, even though the genre is was introduced in the 80's most of the mothers and elder men with the church missed its introduction, or didn't want to understand, so that your message has to be in a position to reach all ages! Why? Because it is not about yourself. You're vessel a mouthpiece something... and this night your life could be commanded from you fool - Luke 12:20 so treat those the possiblility to stand in front of God's people as a fisherman would his bait.
- Can't Understand What's Being Said - basically can't know what you're saying because you have way too many slang words, metaphors and worldly talk... then I miss the chance to be ministered to... you missed the genuine reason you're decided to minister.
And so the question becomes, "What are you able to do to be sure both of these turn offs are eliminated? Allow me to have a page from those who have been doing the work for many years, The Pastor.

Although be resourceful has its privileges from the secular realm along with a unique style is preferred and appreciated, with regards to gospel rap... there should be a common platform from which we provide the word. A two elements must remain, it doesn't matter what you are: they ought to be capable to hear and understand the words that can through your mouth (Psalm 19:14)...
Take this calling very seriously my brother or sister. Understand that there are many people in the crowd than young folk that need the material of Christ... many people sit in church each of their lives never knowing who Christ is. On the other hand he hanging for the cross beside Jesus, you know the individual who hurled insults at him, well, he was right alongside Jesus and didn't convert. So require without any consideration when you find yourself writing that your audience will be holy... everyone is struggling which can be sitting directly in church... If everything you only do is entertain, how's that intending to make an improvement?
