Energetic, Exciting, dynamic, a blessing to the Body Of Christ, ministers to your soul, are just a few words to describe this preacher, artist, & motivational speaker. Let me introduce you to a young man by the name of Short-Tee (Some How Our Race Triumphs Through Endless Efforts) a.k.a. Pastor U. Torrence Sims.
He resides in Birmingham, AL with his wife Paula, daughter Imani (9)and son Ishod (5)where they are active members and he’s Associate Pastor of Solid Rock Church(Pinson, AL) Larry Ragland, Pastor. He is the former Pastor of “The Alternative Hip Hop Church” in Birmingham, AL (A Branch of More Than Conquerors) opened July 16, 2006 at 5:00pm with over four hundred in attendance and over one hundred received salvation and prayer. Short-Tee is a born again Christian with a high impact flavor that appeals to different ages, races, and music listeners.
This young brother has taken the negative influences of a single parent home, drugs, gangs, death, and teen pregnancy to name a few, and turned it into a positive. He is determined to minister the message that the odds can be against you but with Jesus Christ you can beat the statistics.
His stage show gets your blood pumping with a blend of current hip hop beats and samples, traditional gospel songs, dancing, crowd participation, and skits mixed with original lyrics like a chef in a kitchen. In this kitchen everyone will find something they can eat on and the desert will have you worshiping our Lord & Savior and the angels in heaven rejoicing about the souls that were saved. Many have labeled him the “LL Cool J” of Gospel Hip Hop due to his crossover, high energy, hard hitting style.
