*A pastor at a megachurch in Texas has turned to hip hop music to help raise money toward building an orphanage in Southern Sudan.
Adam Thomason, associate pastor of The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, co-founded Collision Records over a year ago with the purpose of redeeming consumerism and putting out great Gospel-centered music.
He saw that vision become a reality this week with the Christian record label’s latest release “Actions Speak Louder” on iTunes.
Collision Records plans to donate 100 percent of the proceeds to His Voice Global, which needs $250,000 to build a fourth orphanage in Southern Sudan.
“I figured that if iTunes receives 10 million downloads daily and we need $250,000 to build the orphanage then we as a church can make that happen,” Thomason told The Christian Post on Wednesday.
The hip hop song, which speaks about plight of people in the war-torn country of Southern Sudan, debuted at No. 1 on the Christian and Gospel Music chart on iTunes. The single track is by Swoope and features music artists Lecrae, Tedashii and Jai.
