Biography

Called not to entertain but to minister. Goodside is a team of believers who are dedicated to delivering the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people, from all walks of life. They met and began casually recording songs in 1998. Shortly after, they began to build the foundation of a life changing hip-hop/worship ministry. In 2003, they released their first album "Where Yo Cross" independently as a strategic evangelism tool that would provide them the opportunity to share the gospel. They performed the CD at hundreds of engagements in Georgia and Alabama with the song "For Us", a lyrical picture of Jesus from the praetorium to the resurrection, being the climax. It was during this time they realized worship was a major part of their live ministry. On July 16, 2004, in the midst of approximately 1,000 supporters, they released their second independent album "Anonymous", beginning their crusade efforts to make Jesus known while they remain unknown. The worship atmosphere and outreach evangelism is a major component of their ministry as they go forth to represent God, who has delivered them from the power of darkness, and has translated them into the kingdom of His dear Son (Colossians 1:13)

L the bondservant - Instructed by God to put the basketball down and take up his cross, "L" turned down opportunities to play professional basketball to pursue God's will for his life. He desires to see lives impacted by the gospel of Jesus Christ and emphasizes the importance of a transforming faith in Christ as God and Savior.

Scent - is the music producer of the group. From singing to rapping, he is willing to do whatever it takes to spread the gospel. Before giving his life to the Lord, he was a high school and college basketball player who fell into a life of drugs and violence. He accepted Jesus in 1995 and began seeking the will of God for his life.
