Rapper Mase is returning to the pulpit. The Harlem, New York native has been named pastor of Atlanta’s Gathering Oasis Church. He shared the news on Instagram earlier this week writing:
“THANK YOU … Also tag someone who is expecting something great from God and let them know that God has already started answering prayers in 2021. Tag someone looking a new church family and remember “ALL PEOPLE ARE WELCOMED” at @thegochurch”

Mase, real name Mason Durell Betha, famously retired from hip-hop to pursue a calling from God. He then became an ordained minister as well as enrolled at Clark Atlanta University. He briefly served as pastor at El Elyon International Church in Atlanta.
Over the years he’s straddled between his career as a rapper and life as one of God’s chosen. He said in a video for Gathering Oasis that he’s excited to bring young people back to the church.
“I really see this generation being turned back to God’s hands I think there’s been a major challenge with the city like being able to direct people back to God and I really welcome the challenge,” he said.
