In the Press: Pastor, Christian rapper reach culture
As teaching pastor of Epiphany Fellowship Church in inner-city Philadelphia, William "Duce" Branch also is a Christian rap artist. The group he co-founded, The Cross Movement, has received two Grammy nominations.
Today’s teaching pastor, however, was yesterday’s street kid. Having spent most of his teen years away from God, Branch abandoned the evils of Hip-hop culture but not the call to evangelize it.
