Good News: Conversion to Christianity Following Prison

Rapper Ja Rule described his recent conversion to Christianity in a radio interview last week, revealing how he embraced the faith after serving two years in prison — and admitting that he’s still figuring out how his newfound beliefs will impact his career. In the interview, listeners learned that he reconnected with God after he was offered a role in the film “I’m in Love With a Church Girl.” Ja Rule said that Carl Lentz, a pastor with an uncommon image and approach, resonated with him. Lentz has helped the rapper on his spiritual journey, encouraging him to take baby steps in his newfound faith. While he’s not planning to start making gospel records, the rapper is considering how his faith will transform his music. Click here to see the interview where Ja Rule tells all!

He created a Facebook event and encouraged his friends to join him in listening to the elementary-schooler tickle the ivories. Click here to see the turn out for this young pianist’s show!
