"James (Jpoetic) has been a great fit at regional and national Youth for Christ Staff Conferences. James has a unique and interesting style that can connect well with any audience. James has a huge heart for lost and broken people in need of a relationship with Jesus, and his heart is evident in every performance." 

-Cory Huffman, Program Leadership Specialist, Youth For Christ

 

“James is a minister of the gospel and talented hip hop performer. He has a boldness for Jesus 
and passion for our urban community in Portland, Oregon. He regularly communicates the 
gospel through hip hop culture/spoken word and demonstrates his faith by living an authentic 
life for Christ.” 

-Raymond De Silva. Portland Soundcheck Founder

 

“I have seen James dynamically impact urban youth with the love of God through his hip-hop 
performances. James is excellent at getting large and small crowds of students involved with 
music and performance. I have witnessed tough-minded hardened youth relax and open up 
their minds to listen to James when he performs.”

-Jesse Richards, Associate Pastor at Door of Hope
