The Gospel Coalition is collaborating with the Obama Foundation’s “Ambassador to America’s Believers Michael Wear and the radical – SOCIAL JUSTICE racial “& CAMPAIGN”. The first two stories revealing this bizarre collaboration are linked below. This movement gets even more bizarre as we enter the 2020 election cycle.
The leaders of the Southern Baptist, along with entities like Desiring God (Passion Conferences) and The Gospel Coalition have long used “Christian Hip Hop” to platform young minorities billed as modern day prophets to the church and attract young white and minority audiences for their urban church planting strategies. Never mind these SBC/TGC leaders look like the nerdy white boys trying to appear “with it” & “hip”, because in reality Hip Hop culture does not fit with their tightly managed “reformed theologian scholars” image. Still there is a payoff for the “nerdy urds” of SBC, TGC & PCA leaders.
Having corralled the urban interest and placed the soundtrack of “Christian Hip Hop” to the TGC brand of reformed theology and folded in a HEAVY DOSE of social justice false gospel, these change agent leaders from two major conservative Christian denominations (the SBC and PCA and others) are attempting to migrate the young whites, African American and Hispanic minorities right into the “Obama Foundations Ambassador to America’s Believers” Michael Wear and the “&CAMPAIGN” movement. The effort is so seamless it goes almost unnoticed.
TGC OLD WHITE BOY LEADERSHIP OPERATE LIKE SLAVE TRADERS SAILING THEIR JUSTICE GOSPEL SHIP.
Like the slave traders of old, TGC white evangelical leaders have loaded the cargo hold of their neo-reformed justice gospel ship with the souls of a generation and launched for foreign shores to sell them off and sell out their FAITH. Destination? Securing their target cargo into the Democratic plantations where minorities have long been used and pandered to for votes for decades by people who care nothing about their real “urban plight” or the lives or FAITH of those its slave trade ships have trafficked.
Some of these key TGC leaders have no doubt learned their skills from the Democratic strategist. Some of the TGC are simply nothing more than Democratic Party & Obama representatives. While others in TGC may simply be just practitioners of the world’s oldest profession… and will bed down with anyone for a few dollars.

A HISTORY IN TGC’s ROLE IN “CHRISTIAN HIP HOP”
The Gospel Coalition and John Piper have been major promoters of the Christian Hip Hop scene.
SBC’s NAMB (North American Missions Board) RAPZILLA AND REACH RECORDS have been at the cutting edge of this neo reformed + Christian Hip Hop movement as Desiring God and TGC have featured the artist in their events, conferences, and publications for well over a decade.
SBC’S NORTH AMERICAN MISSION BOARD IS A SIGNIFICANT PARTNER
NAMB leader DA Horton is a leader in the &CAMPAIGN. Multiple other & CAMPAIGN leaders are in the NAMB urban church planting leadership as well as TGC.
Horton has a long history in the Christian Hip Hop world working with Reach Records and was once the head of Atlanta based Reach Records non profit “Reach Life Ministries”. RLM is now shut down it’s remains converted into use with an urban school.
DA Horton is a NAMB Send Network Church planter in Longbeach CA and a long time NAMB/ SEND leader. He is also an ERLC contributor for Russell Moore. (more on Moore later)
“D.A. Horton serves as Pastor of Reach Fellowship a church plant in North Long Beach, CA & as Chief Evangelist for the Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI). Prior to his current roles, he served as an urban church planter/pastor in Kansas City, Missouri, a National Coordinator of Urban Student Ministries at the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and the Executive Director at ReachLife Ministries, the non-profit ministry of Reach Records.”
“REBRANDING THE SBC” A PROUD HORTON AND NAMB
D A Horton boasted in a 2016 interview about rebranding of the SBC by (TGC) leaders like Russell Moore & David Platt. Urban Church Planting and Hip Hop culture have played a significant part of the “REBRANDING” which Horton is so proud of in the SBC.
“Why I engage the SBC”
“To this day I’m often asked, “D.A. why are you still involved with the SBC?” My answer is simple; I walk them through the progress I’ve witnessed regarding my five convictions.”
“Ministry leadership at; the ERLC, NAMB and IMB – Dr. Russell Moore, Kevin Ezell and David Platt have been game changers regarding the rebranding process of the SBC in the eyes of ethnic minorities. Not only have initiatives been created to recruit, train and send qualified minorities on the field for service, key leadership positions with influence and decision making capacities have been extended to competent and qualified emerging minority leaders.”

JUST GOSPEL 2020 CONFERENCE
(FROM JUST GOSPEL 2020 CONFERENCE SITE)
NOTE THE THIRD WAY POLITICS AND ANTI TRUMP FOCUS
“No one saw the 2016 presidential election coming. No one predicted the effect the election would have on the country—and the Church. To some extent, our tribalism has been exposed and perhaps deepened. Unity has become more fragile.
In all likelihood, the Church will face the same stark choices and the same potential for misunderstanding, disunity and tribal politics. This time, however, we have an opportunity to approach politics and the election differently… like Christians… like the pilgrims and aliens we are in the world.
The goal of Just Gospel 2020 is NOT to engage in partisan debate or endorse any party’s platform. Nor is our goal to bind the consciences of attendees to a particular policy prescription the Bible does not require. We will not recommend or even comment on any candidate.
The Just Gospel 2020 conference goal is to help Christians think biblically and deeply about being Christians and taking our Christian identity and perspective into our political lives. We hope to aid each other in our discipleship. We are “strangers and exiles on the earth” who “desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one” (Heb. 11:13, 16). We hope to model how Christians who differ in secondary and political matters can nevertheless do so charitably and in a way that preserves both unity and freedom of conscience. We hope to make a difference—for the Church and the country.
We need and want healing conversations that serve the Church We need pilgrim politics that bear witness to Christ and Kingdom to which we are headed. Join us!”

“Justin Giboney is an attorney and political strategist in Atlanta, GA. He is also the Co-Founder and President of the AND Campaign, which is a coalition of urban Christians who are determined to address the sociopolitical arena with the compassion and conviction of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Mr. Giboney has managed successful campaigns for elected officials in the state and referendums relating to the city’s transportation and water infrastructure.”
“In 2012 and 2016, Georgia’s 5th congressional district elected him as a delegate for the Democratic National Convention and he served as the co-chair of Obama for America’s Gen44-Atlanta initiative. A former Vanderbilt University football player and law student, Justin served on the Urban League of Greater Atlanta Board of Directors. He’s written op-eds for publications such as Christianity Today and The Hill.”

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING IN CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICAL CIRCLES LIKE TGC?
Again from the Just Gospel 2020 website we get a clear view of why
“No one saw the 2016 presidential election coming. No one predicted the effect the election would have on the country—and the Church. To some extent, our tribalism has been exposed and perhaps deepened. Unity has become more fragile.”
BUT THE DO SEE THE 2020 ELECTION AND UNTHINKABLE RE-ELECTION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO TGC, ERLC AND THEIR LEADERSHIP HAVE FOUGHT TOOTH AND NAIL.
“In all likelihood, the Church will face the same stark choices and the same potential for misunderstanding, disunity and tribal politics. This time, however, we have an opportunity to approach politics and the election differently… like Christians… like the pilgrims and aliens we are in the world.”
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, TGC WOULD HAVE ENDORSED HILLARY CLINTON... SOME IN FACT DID.
“The goal of Just Gospel 2020 is NOT to engage in partisan debate or endorse any party’s platform. Nor is our goal to bind the consciences of attendees to a particular policy prescription the Bible does not require. We will not recommend or even comment on any candidate.”
THE ACTUAL GOAL OF THIS ENTIRE HIP HOP & TGC URBAN MOVEMENT POLITICAL. IT IS DESIGNED TO MOVE THE SBC, PCA AND CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS TO THE LEFT – WELL PAST CENTER.
THE COLLABORATION WITH “&CAMPAIGN” SHOWS NOT A MIDDLE OF THE ROAD POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT BUT FULL-ON RUSH INTO THE OBAMA POLITICS OF THE PROGRESSIVE FAR LEFT VIA LEADERSHIP FROM MICHAEL WEAR IN THE TGC AND & CAMPAIGN.
How long will Christians accept any of the TGC’s work or people at face value? How long will they continue to SUCCESSFULLY USE minorities and minority culture and even “Christian Hip Hop” to appeal to and corral young hearts and minds to enable their own vision?
If you are in the WOKE, then you need to awaken. You are being used by plantation owners of a slightly different sort, yet all to the same self serving ends for those who wish to traffic you, your life, your dreams and your faith. Eternity is hanging in the balances while TGC leaders court nickels and noses in a political sell out.
Do not eat the bread of a miser, Nor desire his delicacies; For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you. The morsel you have eaten, you will vomit up, And waste your pleasant words.
