Engaging Hip-Hop Culture

The following playlist contains the first five of six sessions which served as the treatment plan for my final contextual research project for the Doctor of Ministry program at United Theological Seminary. Lay-Leaders of the Ephesus SDA Church gathered for the six-part series of lectures and discussions on ministry to Hip-Hop culture. The final session is simply a recap of the first five sessions and a discussion on the feasibility, pros and cons, challenges and opportunities of utilizing the various tools, methods and cultural particulars to infuse the ministry of the church.
