This word takes so many meanings in today's society. We represent clothing brands, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, lifestyles, cities, streets, blocks, neighborhoods, gangs, sets; there is a practically infinite number of tangible and intangible options we are given to represent, and it seems like we have to pick something. What most of us fail to realize is what we represent can define who we are. But what happens when we forsake the vanity that this world offers and take the true definition of the word represent to heart? Rep Tha King Ministries, headed by Ryan Vestal a.k.a. "Gritty", is a non-profit organization dedicated to showing people what it means to represent a higher purpose. In actuality, it's not even us who represent this purpose. It's the purpose that represents us. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of love and redemption that teaches us that in order to represent the kingdom of God, we must allow Him to represent us. Through His grace, through our faith, we are made anew, transformed according to the standards of a holy, perfect, and righteous God, and re-presented to the world as cities on a hill (Matt. 5:14), commissioned to present and re-present this powerful, life-saving message to the world by any and all means possible, from music, to outreach, to simple evangelism. More simply, we are commissioned to Rep Tha King.
ABOUT REP THE KING MINISTRIES:
Rep Tha King Ministries is a Killeen, TX-based non-profit organization (501 C3) founded by Ryan Vestal a.k.a. "Gritty" charged to bring change to every venue they encounter, from stages to pulpits to sidewalks. Although Gritty and our team carry the title and appearances of rappers, we are infinitely more than that. The music that carries the Rep Tha King stamp is simply a reflection, an interpretation of the lives we live and the message we bring on a day to day basis through every available medium. You can find us engaging lives and challenging fallacies around the nation, preaching on streets and in churches, giving to those in need, advocating what the Word of God advocates, and of course, making and performing the soundtrack to our movement.
