Rapper J Vessel Launches ImAVessel Charity To Help Urban Youth
On the back of a year which saw him headline Big Church Day Out, Rocknations and premiere on BBC Radio 1Xtra. MOBO Award nominated London rapper and vocalist J VESSEL is proud to unveil a brand-new charity titled ‘IMAVESSEL’, which launched in April 2020.
ImAVessel is an online media platform, dedicated to exploring how practical biblical truths apply to issues affecting young people in the UK today. The charity, launched in April 2020, creates and delivers resources for young people and their youth workers in urban communities across the United Kingdom. Their aim is to see a generation dare to be different, go against the grain and be all God created them to be.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘ImAVessel’, J Vessel says, “Many young people living in urban communities across the UK are being brought up in households of faith. However, In the last ten years, Sunday service attendance has dropped by 75% for 15 -19-year olds. Some are disengaged with the Christian faith of their parents/carers as they feel a disconnect between the culture of Church and the teachings and person of Jesus Christ. ImAVessel is an online media platform, dedicated to exploring how practical biblical truths apply to issues affecting young people in the UK today. Our job is not to make Jesus relevant, he does that all by himself, our job is to translate the deep principles of God into simple, modern forms of teachings, through daily devotional videos and lesson plan resources, that help young people on their journey of faith.
