Lee University U-Church To Host Jonathan Ernstly Etienne

Friday, February 8, 2013 - by Tyler Beckett, Lee University

The Lee University U-Church series will continue this spring with a performance by Lee alum Jonathan Ernstly Etienne on Sunday, Feb. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.

Mr. Etienne is a favorite musician of Lee students, known for his years in the chapel worship band and his talent with multiple musical styles. The young performer has his own selection of Christian music that can sound in one song like Hillsong and in the next like Lil Wayne, all written to display his love for the gospel. In all his music, he is intent on encouraging real-life change in his listeners.

"Make it count or don't do it at all," says Mr. Etienne, a maxim he tries to enact in his life as much as in his music. He works closely with the Far Flung Tin Can foundation in order to support missionaries by promoting the work they do across the globe. Mr. Etienne traveled to Ecuador with FFTC to a feeding ministry called “Pan de Vida.” Due to his personal experience he now donates 50 percent of all music proceeds back to the Christian ministry.

“Welcome to the (Re)” is the newest of Mr. Etienne’s albums, released last month. It is a quick turn-around from his album “There You Are,” released in the middle of last year, with “Freedom Song (The Honesty Project)” being his first album released in 2011.

Welcome The Bike Lanes

In just the last week, I’ve driven from North Chattanooga to downtown using North Market numerous times.  I’ve timed it and it has added no extra time to my commute.  In fact, cutting North Market down to one lane slowed folks down and made me feel safer while driving, which is actually the point of the road project. On top of that, I saw an adorable family biking ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: How We Learned To Play

A couple of years ago I was reading a fascinating story that asserted the “Little Rascals” taught generations of children how to play with each other. When the comedy show about children in a poor neighborhood originated in 1922, there were just silent movies but in 1929, when the “talkies” were introduced, children and adults alike were mesmerized by the wonderful humor that producer ...
