J4J Music Ministries was started in 2006. Our goal is to help Empower, Encourage, and Teach Bible Principles to people everywhere. Today, most of the rap music lovers listen to rap music but the lyrics are not positive at all. Rap artist “J4J” (Pastor Reginald Blanchard) used to be one of those hardcore gangsta rappers (The Mad Mobster) and was well on his way of becoming the next big star. With a recording deal worth $500,000 on the table, he decided to dedicate his life to Christ and turn down the deal because he was tired of living a destructive life. He has a powerful testimony and he delivers the word of God through rap music in a powerful way. It has the same feel, sound, and music as other rap songs have but the lyrics are positive. .

But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
