At the intersection of street beats and solid scripture lies Hostyle Gospel: a dynamic Christian hip-hop group merging musical talent with the Word of God to point souls to Christ. With pulse pounding rhythms and raw lyrics, Hostyle Gospel is igniting a fire of passion for the Lord across America.
Though they reference the Gospel as hostile, hostility is merely the method of delivery. Terse messages merge with edgy compilations to lend a sense of urgency to a searching generation. Countering a culture full of distraction and temptation, Hostyle Gospel is wielding the sword of the spirit, opposing Satan’s advances and winning souls for Christ. Armed with the raw energy of their performances and the ammunition of their Faith, Hostyle Gospel is appealing to youth and adults alike.Hostyle Gospel Ministries originated in 2003 from a central Illinois group called The Elite M.O.C. (Men of Christ). After the founders were called to individual ministries, two members, Proverb (Raynard Glass) and King Soloman (Demetrius Morton), began to refine their vision for the group. Big Job (Fontaine Pizza) was added in 2005 as a frontline member, joining them in performances and on recordings. Since 2005 the group has added Lil‘ Joe (Joe Glass), Teckniek (Omari Thomas), and Kamikaze (Daniel Enomoto), and Hdavid (Hdavid Garcia) all of which serve in music production, graphic design, and web administration.
Currently Hostyle Gospel has completed two albums and four mixtapes and is currently working on their third album, with will be release in mid 2013. The ministry continues to grow along with the number of people who have found Christ through the music of Hostyle Gospel.
Hostyle Gospel ministers to today’s generation in a way that is both relevant and entertaining. The live shows include a mix of original songs and lyrical, Christ-centered re-mixes of Top 20 hits from major artists. Performances flow more like a worship experience than a concert. The crowd is invited to join in on the praise and to focus on worshipping God. The Gospel is prominent in every aspect of their presentation, whether it be rapping, dancing, or preaching.
