2017 speaker/Hip-Hop Artist
Trip Lee is an author, teacher, hip-hop artist, and thought leader whose deepest desire in his writing, teaching, and performing is to declare the goodness and glory of Jesus Christ. A pastor in Atlanta, he regularly preaches and teaches at Christian conferences and events, and has performed his music for thousands of listeners around the world.
In his first book, The Good Life, Lee points to the abundant life available only in Christ – a life beyond anything the world can offer. His second book, Rise, calls a younger generation not to wait to follow God, but to get up and live now.
As a hip-hop artist, Lee’s music has received critical acclaim, while reaching a large and growing audience. He’s won a Stellar award and been nominated for several Dove Awards. His last three albums have debuted at #1 on the Billboard Gospel charts, and his most recent album, Rise, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Rap charts and #16 on the Billboard 200.
Trip was amazing to have with us for Oasis 2017! Through teaching and rapping, students were strengthened and challenged to live lives that point to the Truth of Jesus.

Jordan Howerton Band
The Jordan Howerton Band has led thousands of students and adults closer to Jesus through engaging and high energy worship music. They not only bring excellence in their music, but teach students what a heart seeking Jesus looks like as they lead students. They love to take time to meet students outside of worship sessions, and have a rare way of connecting with students from a variety of walks of life.
In addition to work with JHB, Jordan is currently on staff with Christ's Church of the Valley in Phoenix, AZ.
The Jordan Howerton Band has played for various conferences including CIY, PlanetWisdom, and Simply Youth Conference. We've worked with the Jordan Howerton Band for several years, and it was an honor to worship with them again in 2017!
