Lee U-Church Series Continues With KB And Lee On Sunday

Monday, October 16, 2017
KB

Lee University’s fall U-Church series will welcome KB and Trip Lee on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

KB, also known as Kevin Burgess, has released a mixtape and three albums. His album, “Tomorrow We Live,” debuted at #1 on Billboards Christian Album chart. KB’s passion for hip-hop and his strong faith led him away from his early dream of being an international missionary. Now he does missions through his music. 

KB has toured nationally with Tenth Avenue North and Trip Lee and has collaborated with Andy Mineo and Lecrae. 

Mr. Lee, who has spoken several times for the Lee chapel services, is a rapper and pastor. He has released five albums, including “The Waiting Room” and “20/20,” and authored “Rise: Get Up and Live in God’s Great Story” and “The Good Life.” 

Mr. Lee’s music has been nominated for several Dove awards and three of his albums have debuted at #1 on Billboard Gospel charts. He aims to declare the goodness and glory of Jesus Christ through his writing, teaching, and performing. 

He has also started Built to Brag, an organization that seeks to engage a young, multicultural audience with biblical truths in powerful ways. Mr. Lee currently serves as a pastor at Cornerstone Church in Atlanta, Georgia, where he lives with his wife Jessica and their two children. 

Both artists are members of the 116 Clique, which is a Christian rap group signed to Reach Records. 

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is first come, first served. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Anna Anderson at aanderson@leeuniversity.edu for more information on childcare.

Dr. Doug Fairbanks Enjoyed 48 Years In Ministry

With his soft and friendly Southern drawl typical of someone raised in Chattanooga in the mid-20th century, Dr. Doug Fairbanks gives no hint during a quick exchange of all his worldly – and almost contrasting -- experiences and interests. But he was exposed to entirely different Christian denominations growing up, served in Vietnam but dislikes war, decided on his own as a ... (click for more)

Am I Alone?

 Am I alone seems to be quite apt as I begin to form sentences, thoughts and concerns regarding the state of this country. I feel like I am alone trying, somehow, to justify Trump and understand why he is constantly in the middle of chaos.  Now coined as the Liar-in-Chief, Chief Foreign Affairs Coordinator acting for his pal Russian Dictator, Putin.  The silence ...

Six Things We Can Do About Mass Shootings - And Response (3)

All politics aside, the recent shooting in Florida, and every other shooting in a public place, is a senseless and, possibly, preventable tragedy. It is absurd that we can’t gather in a free society without the fear of some nut job or terrorist using us as targets.   And then the cries of “do something!” from every quarter. But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
