April 05, 2012

Agape (Uh-Gah-Pay) will perform on Sunday, May 27 at 8 p.m., at First United Methodist Church of Reno, 209 W. First St., Reno, NV 89501.

Agape – Dave Scherer – is a hip-hop artist who electrified audiences in Sacramento at the Youth 2011 event last summer with his dancing, rap, and storytelling that combines to spread the message of God's love through Christ.
He has been touring full time for 10 years, performing for hundreds of thousands of youth across the U.S. 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.
Agape has recorded five CDs and has recorded with critically acclaimed producer Ant (Atmosphere, Brother Ali). On his recent CD, he had the privilege of working with Chris Brown's producer, Ra Charm and Grammy-award winning singer Billy Steele (Sounds of Blackness, The Steeles). Agape has shared the stage with the likes of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Toby Mac, David Crowder, Tony Campolo, and Gospel giant Kirk Franklin. And in 2001, he co-founded "JUMP" (Joint Urban Ministries in Praise), a ministry dedicated to helping urban youth unleash their leadership skills through the arts. Agape recently received the Tom Hunstad Award for excellence in youth ministry and for his contribution to the lives of young people.
