Preston Perry is a spoken word poet, performing artist, and teacher from the Southside of Chicago. Preston heard the gospel for the first time in a church in Decatur, Georgia at the age of sixteen, and understood why people needed to be saved. That truth was the first constant for the young man who spent his upbringing moving from state-to-state in a single-parent household. He lived in public housing, nice neighborhoods with family and friends gaining a plethora of experiences. Survival and adaptation were a central part of Preston’s reality. Anger was another. His uncle’s murder and a harsh childhood left Preston with a heart full of hatred. When he grew older, he lived as he wanted: running the streets, getting money, and doing whatever he found pleasing.
God in his mercy moved Preston away from that life after he watched one of his closest friends die. Man’s depravity was evident again in the lifestyle he witnessed and lived. He moved back home to Chicago and God pursued him. A young believer named Gary Brown took Preston under his wing and discipled him. Through Gary’s life Preston saw the weight of his sin. Preston sought help from the scriptures because He wanted to change, but doubted that he could. But God showed him, and a new-found zeal for truth replaced anger and became central. That truth, found only in the gospel of Jesus Christ, has become the foundation of Preston’s life. Preston uses his gifts to spread the good news and witness more radical change through God’s redeeming grace. He is known for his previous work with P4CM, and his vlogs on YouTube. He hopes to live a life worthy of the gospel and is passionate about spoken word poetry, discipleship, urban ministry, and teaching. Preston currently serves with Legacy Fellowship and lives in Chicago with his beautiful wife Jackie and their daughter Eden.
