We are excited to announce our partnership with ATWL.LA and Emmanuel Reformed Church to bring you the Chopping Block Conference on March 18th, 2017. Featuring music and teaching from Lamp Mode artists shai linne, S.O., Timothy Brindle and Json. Also featuring poetry performances from local artists Antonio Appling, NIQ, Janet Jun, and Jacqulyn Whang.
This event is a fundraiser and ALL proceeds will go to help plant/ support existing churches into Compton and inner-city Los Angeles.
"I certainly don’t want to reduce great preaching to cadence, but I do think this is an area where many preachers can benefit from hearing sermonic rhythm from artists like Shai Linne or the Ambassador."
"Listen to Json’s album No Filter for a view of Christian life from the trenches of the lived experience. Christian rap can help us think deeply about the way our message might sound on the other side of the lectern."
Much more than an emcee, Brian Davis also served as the administrator for Lamp Mode working with other artists on the label.
“Brian is not only a brother and a friend, but a herald of the gospel,” Lamp Mode president Jason “Json” Watson said. “We had great chemistry and great debates. What he brought to the team behind the scenes and as an artist will be missed. This is not the loss of a brother but a send-off. His heartbeat to shepherd the people of God carries a far greater weight in our eyes, and we are excited to see and support what God does in and through him as well as Risen Christ Fellowship.”
A church plant established in Philadelphia in 2015, Risen Christ Fellowship is pastored by Davis, Shai Linne and Frank Lettko.
“I absolutely love my job now as a pastor,” Davis said of his position with the church. “I feel like I have the best job in the world.”
Welcome to the new lampmode.com. Over the last year or so, Lamp Mode has been in a place of transition.
As we've tried to discern answers to questions like "How do we stay true to the mission that God originally called us to in 2003?" and "How do we continue to serve our loyal audience?" our team has had to both simultaneously look back at our roots, while trying to be faithful to God's calling in 2016. We appreciate everyone who has continued to support us through prayers, buying music and merch, and sharing our content online.
While we may not have the perfect answer to the questions we continue to ask, this new website represents a new chapter. We thank you for your patience as we continue to "revamp" our look and find new and exciting ways to serve you, our supporters.
Be on the look out for lots of exciting news and content from us in the upcoming weeks. We're just getting started.
