Lecrae and Reach partnering to end Biblical Poverty
Christian Hip Hop means a lot of different things to many people. In fact, there are many names for it for many people, but often, people struggle to understand the point of it all. This is a great example of the point of it all.
*** To be clear from the onset, this is not about #bars and rap verses – – – so there are no beats to collect, no rhymes for anyone to drop. This is about giving so that Bible verses can be translated into other languages ***
The problem statement: Today, more than a billion people on the planet are trapped in the darkness of Bible Poverty. There are more than 3,700 language groups with little or no access to Scripture.
We are the movement. It’s time to move! For years, Reach Records’ artists have crafted songs inspired by The Gospel and translated into “bars” that tell their unique stories. This year, we are excited to partner with IllumiNations, a movement of the world’s leading Bible translation groups working together to end Biblical poverty across the world. Over the next 12 months, you can become a part of getting God’s life-changing Gospel to everyone on the planet. Join the 12 Verse Challenge and help us join the collective of believers laboring to translate God’s word to every language in the world by 2033!
You can partner with Reach to make this come to life. Reach has launched the 12 Verse Challenge, and if just 1% of Christians would fund translating 12 bible verses, then the work will be complete.
When you visit the website, you can see their goals clearly.
Even more exciting, you can see that the contributions have started to flow.
As a means of inspiring that giving, Reach goes on to say, “Not only does the 12 Verse Challenge mean becoming a part of this life-changing mission, but Reach is rewarding all givers with exclusive, limited-time products hand-picked by our staff and artists! Over the next few months, we'll launch 116 flash rewards to incentivize our community to take part (think exclusive vinyl, merch, signed giveaways, etc.).”
