Steven Furtick, pastor of Elevation Church, and popular radio host Charlamagne Tha God, whose real name is Lenard McKelvey, returned to their roots in South Carolina for a very important video discussion on race and religion.
“I thought, ‘We came from the same town and went to the same school and we never even talked to each other,’” Furtick said of the “Breakfast Club” nationally-syndicated host. “I wondered what would happen if we talked.
The 30-minute interview, titled “Come Out of Corner,” shows the two men from the same neighborhood and different backgrounds visiting several locations, including old homes, schools and churches in their hometown, Moncks Corner.
