‘Made In America Music Festival’ Features Pastor Charles Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago
Well, this is pretty interesting. We are not sure why a gospel group would accept the invitation from a rap artist to perform at his event but we surely pray this gospel group makes an impact.
Listen to this: If you are going to go to one of these events, you had better let God’s light shine so brightly, everyone in there will fall to their feet and accept Jesus. That is our prayer.
