Rapid Fire Ministries with Rocky & Mandy Thomas
There is much to say about Rapid Fire Ministries. It’s really hard to know exactly where to begin and where to end but it all started in 1989 in Conway, Arkansas, when Rocky Thomas teamed up with two others to form a Christian music group. They would take popular songs and change the words to Christian songs. This group grew in to Freedom Force. Freedom Force went to over 80 schools and provided a drug free program. The first of these schools was in Leslie, Arkansas. This is where Rocky met Mandy Collins, who had a beautiful voice, and joined Freedom Force. Later on Freedom Force split up but Rocky and Mandy wanted to continue with ministry.
In 2000 Rapid Fire Ministries was formed and that same year Rocky and Mandy were married. It is said to be one of the most innovative and rounded ministries of today. Innovative in that it reaches the youth culture outside the walls of the church with their performance and message grounded in Jesus Christ.
Rocky, also known as T-Rock, is a Youth Pastor and Associate Pastor at Botkinburg Four Square Church and a Christian Rapper, and known to be on the cutting edge of a high energy ministry focused on the hip hop generation. He currently wrote a children’s book that include five short stories that were inspired by he and Mandy’s two year old son Blaze. He is also interpreting and recording the Hip Hop Bible. This audio version is being done with the books of the Bible set to music and the words in rap. Rocky says this version will reach kids that might not read the Word. Thomas Nelson Publishers is currently looking at this project.
Mandy has an amazing voice and sings country gospel and contemporary Christian music in her part of the ministry. She recently recorded a song in Nashville, Tennessee - ‘Oasis,’ which is scheduled to be released very soon. She and Rocky recorded their song ‘Country and Rap’ that combined the two styles of music. Mandy is very involved in the ministry and has a very important role. They are very proud of their son. According to Rocky, he is a miracle child. He survived some pretty serious health problems early on and is very healthy now. This little guy raps with dad, dances and is apparently going to have the talents of his parents. He already likes playing the drums, and has the rhythm for it. They say faith has been the key for them.
They have just released a new CD which is Rapid Fire: Tried By Fire: The Compilation. A copy of the CD may be purchased at The Good Book, in Clinton, Arkansas. They also performed at the Holy Hip Hop awards in Atlanta, Georgia. They have seen over 4,000 salvations in 4 years through their ministry!
Rapid Fire combines gospel rap, Holy Hip Hop, martial arts, drama and the Word of God, in order to reach this generation for Christ. Rocky says there are four facets of Rapid Fire Ministries (1) high energy concerts, (2) children’s crusades and events, (3) teach hip hop dance workshops to kids who want to go out and do their own ministry and (4) the drug free program. The drug free programs will be back in the schools this fall. Elementary, middle and junior high school will be the focus.
A group of five to seven members of a martial arts team do demonstrations, led by Rocky. They combine fighting, board breaking, and weapons in their presentation and share their message. For information about the demonstration or to have them perform contact Ayers Taekwondo at (501)745-8531 or Rocky Thomas at (501)745-3891.
