C3 is an innovative movement born out of a desire to serve an ever-evolving generation of youth. “At one time the Urban and Suburban experiences were uniquely different…what youth are exposed to, is not limited by their location,” says Pastor Jamaal. This belief led Pastor Jamaal to coin the phrase “Surban,” because “Technology has created a blending of the urban and suburban cultures.” C3 has grown from the dream of a judgment-free youth environment to a culturally relevant entity. Over the 5 years that C3 has existed, they have ministered in places such as Texas, New Orleans, Guatemala, Singapore and Jamaica just to name a few. Setting their eyes on a new endeavor, C3 created the C3 Music Group (C3MG). C3MG seeks to produce groundbreaking music that promotes the values of progressive Believers. From this visio comes “Release Me,” a compilation of music representing C3’s multicultural membership and influences. The album features rock, pop and hip-hop sounds providing a well rounded musical experience.
