Energetic, Exciting, dynamic, a blessing to the Body Of Christ, ministers to your soul, are just a few words to describe this minister/ artist. 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 / Pastor Short-Tee. He now resides in Birmingham, AL with his wife Paula, daughter Imani (6)and son Ishod (2)where they are active members of More Than Conquerors Faith Church, Stephen Green Sr., Pastor. He is the newly ordained 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. Many have labeled him the "LL Cool J" of Gospel Hip Hop due to his crossover, energetic, hard hitting style. 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. He was called to the ministry and accepted in April of 2000 through the scripture 1Tim.1:12-17. As an apostle of hip hop he uses transparency similar to the Apostle Paul to reach the lost, to restore the fallen saints, revive churches, and ministers of the gospel. The peculiar mission God has commissioned this vessel to bridge the gap between the church, hip hop culture, the streets, all races, and political areas. He speaks and performs in housing projects, schools, youth detention centers, churches, drug rehabilitation centers, college campuses, festivals, or where ever God leads him. He served his country in the U.S. Navy in "Operation Desert Storm" and in the U.S. Army (reservist activated after 9/11) Operation Noble Eagle (United States) and Operation Enduring Freedom (Bagram, Afghanistan). While on active duty with the 310th Chemical Co. he served as chaplain, since the unit did not have one. He touched many hearts and souls, plus was the first minister through gospel hip hop as part of a Gospel Extravaganza (June 22, 2002) at Bargram, Afghanistan Air Force Base. This young man brings rap, dancing, singing, and ministry straight to you! Here is someone who is bringing Gods Uncompromised WORD to the industry and community by storm! He is on Hells Most Wanted List because of the thousands of souls that have been saved and stopping ain't even an option! He may be vertically challenged, but he is hitting the devil with knees, and elbows! Don't' Sleep On This Brother! One thing is for sure, he is not Taking No Shorts!!!!
