GeneratiONE Church in Huntersville (NC) is a different concept in worship. It’s being billed as an urban, hip hop church. The intersection of religion and hip hop. Is it right?

Just last year a Winston-Salem (NC) pastor was fired because he attended a Rick Ross concert. The Internet went haywire asking the question is it okay for a pastor to enjoy and support music that is filled with many of the things that the church is trying to correct?

For Pastor Quinn Rodgers the answer is yes.

“Early hip hop culture was a consciousness,” says Rodgers. “It brought about a social and economic awareness that challenged individuals to examine themselves and change. And when i look at the church we are challenged as Christians to do the same with our walk with Christ.”

Last week Rodgers launched GeneratiONE Church to help reclaim a younger generation in the movement for Christ.
