    In 1998 a question was posed... "If your GOD is so real and relevant why is He not being represented in the Hip-Hop Culture?" Eddie Cortes (RizCiphis) was left in awe and was speechless.

    Hoping to disprove his peer's philosophy he went home and wrote his first rap song. Eddie realized that there were many more of his peers who questioned God's triune existence and searched for the answers within what they found to define them, what they related to; the Hip-Hop Culture. Soon after the word of God spoke to Mr. Cortes during a sermon where his Pastor, Rev. Jose L. Castro, referred to Matthews 10:38; "anyone who does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me." Searching to find a way to be worthy and reach his peers Eddie picked up his cross and the Carriers were born.

    In 1998, Mr. Cortes, with the direction of the Holy Spirit began to break some of the traditional barriers in his conservative Baptist Church. After much controversy and criticism from the congregation and a week of prayer by his Pastor, Rev. Jose L Castro, Eddie was granted permission to go forth and host an indoor Youth Hip-Hop Concert. Hearts were convicted, souls were won, and a new breed of ministry was setting forth. The critics were silenced. (In fact some our strongest critics are now our biggest supporters.)

    God continued to strategically piece the Carriers ministry together. The Hip-Hop group was formed in Oct. 1998 with the additions of Remy Basuri and Jeremiah Smaha; weeks later they were invited to minister at Nyack College where they received a standing ovation. Since then the Carriers have been invited out across the country to, colleges, schools, churches, youth groups, outreach programs, camps, coffee houses and festivals such as Rap Fest, Flavor Fest, Generacion Nueva, Worship Fest City Fest, to minister God's message of reconciliation.

    In 2001 the Carriers were officially incorporated as a non-profit status 501 (c)(3) organization. They also independently released their first full-length album entitled "Carriers."

    Lives are being changed and souls are being won... In the scriptures it states in Acts 2:17 (also Joel 2:28) that "in the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams." God is breeding a new generation of young thirsty soldiers willing to serve with a tactic that is new to the human eye; the Carriers are on the front line ready to serve...
