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.

Roy Exum: Five Straight Days Of Football

If I covered my first high school football game as a fledging sports when I was 16 years old, and I am now 66, I figure that’s darn near about a half-century of passes and punts. The mystifying part is that I still get as big of a kick hovering around the game as I did on my very first time so as we usher in the start of the college season with five straight days of games, here ...
