After the interview ROCK sent me this link to the article:
a movement to redefine musical styles often associated with drugs and violence, and bring the word of God to youth.Looks like rapping for Jesus is here to stay...and coming to a town near you!

Stephan Wright, whose stage name is R.O.C.K. (Representative of Christ the King) is a youth pastor at Bramalea Christian Fellowship Church, and uses hip hop in almost every service. He's practical and knows that most young people aren't interested in listening to earnest sermons early on Sunday morning – so youth services are in the evenings, often on Fridays.
"Events like this are entertaining and fun, but there is a message behind it," says Wright. One of the messages is that God is in everything. "After the music stops they are encouraged to live a life for Jesus, instead of day to day."
