"Pastoral Reference Letter"

This is a letter of reference for the group "Divine Rootz" whose members are Ivan Gonzalez and Alex Martinez. They have performed in many churches including ours several times. Their message is true and they have great talent!

Ivan Gonzalez has been a member at our church for 11 years. We have watched him grow up and make incredible changes in his life! It has truly been a pleasure to have him. He has been, for many years, a valuable leader in our ministry as well as a part of our Praise & Worship Team. He has shown discipline, commitment, and great maturity. He has a wonderful stable marriage and demonstrates great responsibility. We are grateful for him and proud of him.

Alex Martinez AKA "L.E.X" has been a member of our church for 3 years. He has been faithful to the ministry here as well as been involved in our outreaches. He is an upstanding young man and we are honored to have him with us. His personality is friendly and extremely evangelistic. To say the least he is a blessing.

Together they make a great team to minister and spread the gospel. You will not be disappointed! They are both respectful and humble yet talented and anointed. Your group will truly be blessed. After twenty years of full ministry they have my total and complete endorsement.

Should you have any further questions or needs, please do not hesitate to contact me at

"Grace Community Church"

In December of two thousand and three we were given the opportunity of hosting Divine Rootz who ministered to our young people by way of Christian hip-hop music. It was an awesome event that our youth appreciated and definately related to. It was evident within the crowd participation, the response to the personal testimonies of Alex and Ivan, as well as in response to a final alter call at the end of the concert. Since that time I have personally seen a change in the lives of our young people who responded to the alter call. They are more involved and active in our youth ministry.

Divine Rootz bring a live concert, with an energetic delivery, conveying the clear message of Jesus Christ in the language of today's urban youth.

These young men are not just hip-hop artists but are needed ministers of the gospel for this generation. - Pastor Keith Barreto

Divine Rootz consists of 3 emcees: David Blade, Sam Simeon & Vyze Vision. The group name was inspired by Jeremiah 17:7-8, "But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." David, Sam & Vyze come from many different walks of life with similar backgrounds and all grew up listening to hip-hop.

David, Sam & Vyze all attend the same non-denominational Christ-centered church called House of Mercy in West Palm Beach, Florida and serve under Pastor Tim Bumgardener. They believe that it’s very important to get involved in a local church that preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fullness. It is even more important to develop a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through worship, prayer, and studying scripture. As they grow in Christ they realize it’s not about them but about glorifying God in everything they do, committing their work to the Lord. Why not glorify Christ through hip-hop music?

Divine Rootz use the gifts and talents that God has so graciously given them to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ with life experiences over beats and rhymes through this relevant form of expression called hip-hop. The debut album entitled, “Destroy & Rebuild” with productions from Tony Stone, Teddy P., G-Styles, David Blade of Spark Fire Productions and many more, encourages both believers and unbelievers to kill (destroy) the plague of sin in their lives and allow our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ to transform (rebuild) them with a renewed mind. The official release date is TBA.
