About Jelani

A Pacific Northwest native, Jelani Greenidge is a dynamic communicator with a drive to inform, inflame, and inspire. When he’s not doing freelance work, he’s also learning on the job as co-pastor of Sunset Covenant Church in Portland, Ore.

Whether in print, in song, or in person, Jelani engages people with a stylized blend of urban intellect, incisive commentary, and practical theology. He tackles a variety of subjects, but his sweet spot is right at the three-way intersection of nerd culture, hip-hop culture, and evangelical culture. He is a speaker, writer, arranger, producer, hip-hop emcee/lyricist, stand-up comic, and the founder of Motif Worship, a resource for keyboard-driven worship leaders.

Plus he dabbles in comedy now.

Jelani resides with his lovely bride Holly alongside several resilient plants, an XBOX One, and no pets.
