My name is Garrett Braaf and I am a Gospel Hip Hop artist. I have chosen this method of ministry for a number of reasons. I’m particularly fond of the musical style of hip hop, but not too crazy about the negative messages it sometimes displays.
Realistically, most of today’s young people enter the music store and walk straight past the GOSPEL section and go to the pop, R&B and hip hop.
My approach is simply to take the same high energy beats of today’s popular music and replace the negative message with the message of the Gospel.
In Mark 16:5 it says to “spread the gospel to every living creature.”
Why not do it in a way that will easily reach our younger generation? To me, that’s music.
Garrett Braaf is from the Diocese of Southeast Florida.
