Christian Hip-Hop Artist Lecrae Tells His Own Story Of Personal Struggle And Hope Found In Christ

According to our source, Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae has sent another message out to his fans: significance is found not in oneself but in God. In the latest video featured on, a website devoted to sharing the powerful testimonies of lives transformed through the Gospel, Lecrae Moore tells his own story of personal struggle and hope found in Christ.

All his life, Lecrae Moore wanted to feel a sense of significance. Growing up in a single parent home without a father, whom he never met, and a mother who was constantly working, he wrestled to find a sense of worth whether through his rapping or other activities.

To him, being a “well-manicured, good, all around student and person” was not going to help him find what he was looking for. So he chose a life of criminal and gang activity, drugs, theft, and alcohol instead.

“The people I looked up to were gangsters,” he described on the site. “I wanted to be doing criminal activity so I kept rebelling and I kept doing worse.”

But pretty soon after he was arrested for stealing in high school and put on a gang list, he wondered, “What am I doing with my life?” He felt like he didn’t fit anywhere and was just a “misfit of a person.”

As time passed on, he began feeling emptier, filling the void with more drugs and more women. Moore knew he was in a really dark place and he wasn’t sure how to get out of it.

When he was 19 years old, he was invited to attend a Christian conference by a friend. Though he was more excited about going to a big city and meeting girls, what he found was what he had been looking for all of his life.

During the conference, rappers also spoke about God in a way that he had never heard before. Moore had no idea who the God behind the lyrics were. Then when a speaker got up and asked, “Do you know you have been bought with a price?” he began to find what he was looking for – significance.

Having spent a long time searching for a father figure to replace his own, the now 32-year-old artist shared that God ultimately showed him thereafter that he was his father.
