    The We Rise Movement

    The “We Rise” Movement consists of 5 incredible artists who have over thirty two years experience in recovery from addiction, overcoming homelessness and poverty, performing, public speaking, youth leadership and reaching out to the lost. In May of this year, these five artists will be departing New York and taking a trip to Africa to fulfill a ministry of hope.

    What is the We Rise Movement?

    "WE RISE" MOVEMENT is a move of truth. From ashes to beauty, the spirit rises within us to go out and spread the message of freedom, healing, restoration, prosperity and victory . The WRM has experienced the mighty promises of truth and we are equipped  to go out into the dark places and shine light. This is a global movement in places like streets, jails, ghettos, rehabs, tours, stadiums, clubs, churches, open mics and so much more. The WRM takes on the form of water which can go where other objects cannot, while we share our light and this message through our gifts, talents, abilities and willingness to serve. This is made possible by the strengthening and guidance of Spirit.

    Tell us about the mission trip to Africa; what is the purpose?

    The “We Rise" Movements’ mission is three fold. We are going first and foremost to bring the message of Truth. We are going to put on 2 major concerts (approximately 2500 people per show) featuring The “We Rise” Movement. We will be sharing our personal experiences, testimonies and how “we rise” above our circumstances with truth.  

    What are you hoping to accomplish?

    We are hoping to leave them with abundant hope and faith, with truth that all things are possible! Also, we are bringing them supplies like medical, sandals and shirts. 

    Will this be a yearly event?

    No, but we will travel the world doing this type of service.

    What are your biggest challenges right now planning this trip?

    Raising the finances of $22,630.00 for five people, but we believe "when truth guides it provides.”

    Who is going with you?
