dc.description.abstract<p>This project was designed to provide a working model of bridging the African American community and the Reformed faith. The gap between the community and church has grown wider because churches are using models of worship that are outdated and paternalistic for the Hip Hop generation. Some churches have refused to enter into fresh ways to draw young people into a worshiping body because it means a significant shift in their own thinking about culture and worship. The thrust of a Christian Hip Hop service is to integrate Hip Hop culture, multimedia, and hospitality into a working model that attracts and retains African American young people into a Reformed church.</p><p>Chapter 1 will provide a biblical and theological basis of "witness"as the prevailing symbol of being the people of God, who were saved to be a light to the nations. The metaphor is a picture of what the people of God were meant to be in God' s salvation plan.</p><p>Chapter 2 reports the history of Roosevelt Park Community Christian Reformed Church. I will give attention from the great beginnings of two churches to their eventual deaths, and their resurrection into Roosevelt Park Community CRC.</p><p>Chapter 3 records my own spiritual journey. My story will provide spiritual markers that has lead me from the Black Baptist church into becoming a minister in the Christian Reformed church.</p><p>Chapter 4 provides an analysis of the Hip Hop culture and its hold on the young urban generation today. What are the held values of Hip Hop culture? Can the Reformed faith provide answers to their questions about life, God and spirituality? The Reformed faith can speak to the heart, soul, and spirit of the Hip Hop generation.</p><p>Chapter 5 presents a preaching model that can reach the Hip Hop generation. Preaching is more than a single event, but part of the larger context of worship which seeks a multi-dimensional approach to preaching to the young people of the Hip Hop culture.</p><p>Chapter 6 sketches the "Keep It Real" service from an idea to the first worship service.</p><p>Chapter 7 reflects on what I learned in starting this service, with its mistakes and triumphs and what can others learn from this project for other urban Reformed churches.</p>en_US
