The Disciples are a group of passionate young men from PAATC, who are on fire for Christ. Our desire is to spread the Gospel to the urban community, youth and young adults through Christian Rap (Holy Hip Hop). In today’s society they are faced with difficult choices, temptations and tolerance of things that are immoral. Our goal is to embrace, strengthen, teach, reassure, foster, inspire impact and encourage them to make the right choice.
