PROBLEM STATEMENT

Today’s young people as well as adults across the world are constantly bombarded with messages that have their roots in the hiphop culture*(explanation at bottom of page). Most of these messages carry sexual undertones and innuendos that consciously and sub-consciously incite people to pursue a lifestyle of materialism, pride and greed. From music lyrics, commercials, radio adverts to music videos and movies young people are unwittingly seduced into worldliness** and often times find themselves drifting away from the fundamental principles of the Christian faith. “To our knowledge, this is the first study to test longitudinal associations between exposure to sexual content in music lyrics and changes in sexual behavior. Our results provide evidence that such exposure is related to advances in a range of sexual activities among adolescents, including intercourse and noncoital behavior. These associations were evident among male and female listeners and among whites and nonwhites and held even after accounting for a wide variety of other personal and social factors correlated with adolescent sexual behavior and with exposure to sexual lyrics. These findings contribute to the emerging body of evidence of the role of a variety of media in the sexual socialization of youth.****”

MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY The ministry operates on the 3 E’s;   

Evangelise Equip Expose

Evangelise 

All our activities are founded on the Great Commission – Matthew 28:19 – aiming at giving people an opportunity to receive and accept Christ as their personal Lord and saviour, in a package that will be most relevant to them.

Equip 

Once we have introduced people to Christ, our next assignment is to connect them to individuals and Churches that will help them get grounded in the word of God and provide them with a family and supportive environment for them to nurture their calling and gifting in readiness to start serving in their family, local Church and community at large

Expose 

When an individual has fully matured and is cognisant of their gifting as well as responsible enough to manage the challenges that come with it, Triple H Clique will carefully and gradually avail them a platform where they can put their skills to use. This helps individuals who have since been established in their local Church to gain exposure, attain growth, gain ministry experience and connect with ministry networks outside the four walls of the Church.

This music is known to have originated from the streets of the United States of America, predominantly in the Black community; carrying messages about appearing cool, tough and being an object of envy/desire in society. This music has since been an avenue/platform for expression for a lot of young people. It’s also popular for being a conduit for airing out matters that one would otherwise not be comfortable doing on other platforms. ii) **Worldliness: Living in conformity to worldy standards and not according to biblical principles Download the membership form here: http://bit.ly/1bqwmr4
