      A Chicago pastor named Phil Jackson (not that Phil Jackson) may have found an effective—albeit controversial—method of connecting teens to biblical teachings: a hip-hop church. Sounds like a crazy idea to many, but to Pastor Jackson “it’s respectful, it’s relevant and it’s real.”

Jackson, a 43-year old associate pastor at Lawndale Community Church and author of the The Hip-Hop Church, says: “We don’t believe in Christian music, we believe in Christian lyrics.”

      The minister told the Medill Reports that his own personal battles with the temptations of street life at an early age made him eager to create a comfortable environment for teens to learn the Word of God. Preach
