Agape (Dave Scherer) is a hip-hop artist who electrified audiences at the Youth 2011 events last summer with his dancing, rap, and storytelling that combines to spread the message of God's love through Christ.
Agape has been touring full time for 10 years, performing for hundreds of thousands of youth across the US and in six different countries, "Spreading God's love through hip-hop." He has a passion for young people and for helping them to realize their worth and to see themselves through Jesus' eyes.
