ANOINTED is a word that I would use to describe myself, Cedrick Woods, because without God’s anointing, what I do would mean nothing! I am a 16 year old Christ-centered, young man on the move for God! I am a member of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Carrollton, GA under the leadership of Pastor Samuel T. Mercer. There I previously served as Vice-President of the Youth Ministry as well as a leader in youth sports. I also serve on the Youth praise team, choir and previously a member of Alternative Praise Mime ministries at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church. God has blessed me with the gift to rap which transcends all generations; but touches the youth in a special way. My purpose is to win souls for Christ, no matter the age, letting everyone know that it is cool to live for Christ! God gave me this vision when I was 12 years old and showed me how he would use me as His instrument to reconcile others back to Him; as a result I began writing and rapping scriptural based lyrics.
As I accepted this anointing and embraced this gift BICF ministry was birthed, which stands for Believer in Christ Forever.
BICF has been blessed to have been called to minister around the Carroll County area. Some of the churches and venues include but are not limited to; my home church, Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church; Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Pastor Ricks; New Vision Miracle and Deliverance Center, Pastor Rodney Freeland; Mt. Zion of Sargent, Pastor DeAndre Green; as well as Boys and Girls Club of America, Carrollton, GA Georgia World Congress Center, Crunk for Christ Radio, Hosea Feed the Hungry, Times-Georgian Newspaper, International House of Prayer, Carrollton Middle School, and a host of other venues.
Yung Swagga has ministered on the stage with some of the top artist in the Gospel industry including Donnie McClurkin, Vickie Yohue, and Canton Jones. Yung Swagga is currently apart of Canton Jones “CaJo U” University for artist. Yung Swagga is currently an international artist and has been nominated for the 2012 Best Holy Hip Hop Artist, Best Youth Holy Hip Hop Artist, Best Male Holy Hip Hop Artist, Best Album, and Best Callabo. At this award show August 11, 2012 I won the best Youth Holy Hip Hop Artist.
I humbly proclaim and declare that BICF through Christ’s anointing will change the lives of whomever embraces its’ messages! My ministry through Christ will help deliver and bring both youth and mature people back in fellowship with Christ. God has embedded in me to give back to my community where I gave a percentages of my record sales to children for Christmas. I love God and I have kingdom business on my mind. After embracing my gift I asked God how to implement him into the name that was giving to me by him and it comes from Ephesians 2:8-9 S aved With Amazing Grace.
Blessings to you,
Cedrick Woods known as Yung Swagga
