There's ministry, and there's The Ministry. We always knew that. 

Now we're learning it again....

October 12, 2017—a Thursday—a network of peers, mentors and sages gather to tell stories, ask questions, and connect with others who are redeeming, reclaiming, and reframing the M word.

Fred Lynch has been engaged in youth and family ministry for more than a quarter of a century,  as a rap artist, youth pastor, evangelist, lead pastor, mentor and spiritual coach.  Currently, Fred speaks in public schools in San Diego and nation-wide for Rachel’s Challenge, informing and inspiring students to live a life of care and compassion while resisting bullying.

When he was 18, Fred Lynch was a founding member of one of world's first gospel rap acts,  P.I.D. P.I.D. who recorded six albums, stood for Preachers in Disguise—though the evangelical apologist, Josh McDowell, once cautioned Fred that the initials also signify pelvic inflammatory disease, so...there's that. 

Whether it’s speaking in public schools, speaking or performing in churches and camps, or mentoring others, Fred engages leaders for greater focus and effectiveness through discipleship, coaching and leadership development.

Fred lives in San Diego and is currently working on a documentary called Mic Drop: The Culture of Christian Hip Hop. Fred is the author of The Script (Harper Collins), an artistic treatment of the Gospel of John in rap.
