MISSION STATEMENT: "To uplift and encourage others through my gift(s) that GOD, the father of my lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST(CRISTO DE JESUS), gave me". About J.O.T. aka GRANDE GATO aka JAMES O. TERRY jr, Cancer Survivor, North Carolina State University College graduate, Book author, Clothing line designer/owner, Record Label CEO, Rapper/MC, FCC licensed. MISSION STATEMENT: "To uplift and encourage others through my gift(s) that GOD gave me (The father of my lord and Savior Jesus Christ or Cristo de Jesus.)"
J.O.T. aka GRANDE GATO aka JAMES O. TERRY JR. wants to encourage and give both young and old people in the world hope, and let them know that with faith and perseverance the impossible can become possible (J.O.T. knows what he is talking about because he was able to complete a CD album immediately after his Cancer went into remission). J.O.T. started writing what GOD had done because he held on to his faith (J.O.T. praised GOD even when he thought he was going to die and believed that is why he was healed just as JOB in the bible was healed because JOB praised GOD too when he thought he was might die). This soon led J.O.T. to write his testimony in the form of song lyrics and put it to music (As he does with all of his trials and tribulations he has overcome through the power of the LORD). 1996 was the year that J.O.T. turned his life over to Christ and decided he wanted that to reflect in his music. That same year J.O.T. officially started up his Christian based company, SOUL-FULL PRODUCTIONS (The reason he spelled the company name with a hyphen in the middle and the letter L twice at the end of the name was to let the world know that his "SOUL" was "FULL" because he displayed the WORD OF GOD through what he did.) With three different subsidiary branches to SOUL-FULL PRODUCTIONS (Clothing line, Literature, and Record label branch) J.O.T. always believed it was important not to get comfortable in the ministry and continue to grind and work hard for CHRIST. As the first artist to come out on his independent record label, J.O.T. RECORDS, J.O.T. put out nineteen CD albums, four CD singles, and eleven 12” vinyl records (entitled NORTH CAROLINA STREET HEAT Presents…volumes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; SOUL-FULL presents the vinyl album; BUENA VIDA the spanish vinyl; BUENA VIDA 2021 remix vinyl record; & SOUL-FULL pt8). J.O.T. also has a music video which was shot on film near the college university, NC STATE, he attended(“PRESS ON”, which it is titled, even aired once on BET Sunday morning gospel music video segment). Today J.O.T. has been heard on major FM radio stations, SIRIUS satellite radio, and has appeared on major television news stations. J.O.T. has performed live in both Miami, Florida (2003 at UMOJA FESTIVAL; 2006 at I/O ENTERTAINMENT LOUNGE; 2014 COAST 2 COAST music showcase hosted by DJ DNA from SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO at the HOLIDAY INN MIAMI BEACH OCEANFRONT location in the FANTASY BALLROOM); MIAMI LIVE NIGHTCLUB for 2017 MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND; 2018 overseas in HAVANA, CUBA at the MADRIGAL NIGHTCLUB & also in North Carolina(In 2002 at BENTON CONVENTION CENTER NEW YEAR’S EVE CONCERT hosted by 97.1 FM’s A.C.

Previously was the release of “NUEVA MUSICA”(“NEW MUSIC”) for 2013, which has songs like track#1 “GOOD vs EVIL”(remix) which talks of the war between the flesh vs. the HOLY SPIRIT & how praying to GOD to give us the strength to choose good can give us the victory over the enemy!!!!

J.O.T. knows that, through CHRIST, his ministry will encourage people with and without cancer and let them know that focusing on CHRIST will help them with whatever they are going through. J.O.T. knows because he is a living testimony and so he stays SOUL-FULL. GOD BLESS or in SPANISH "DIOS TE BENDIGA"!!!!
Quote from JAMES O. TERRY JR. aka J.O.T. aka GRANDE GATO: "GOD delivered me from Cancer so I could help spread the ministry of CHRIST or CRISTO through my works (Music/Books/Clothing) and spread the good news of faith through my testimonies(Live Performances/Public Speaking/Visiting sick, incarcerated, etc.). J.O.T. aka GRANDE GATO wants to bring people from different cultures together, especially Blacks from his AFRICAN AMERICAN culture and Hispanics from the LATINO culture. After viewing the SOUL-FULL productions website, if you feel moved to do so, please help support this ministry. Thank You (Gracias)." SOUL-FULL MINISTRY STATEMENT Soul-full productions purpose is to provide a positive, encouraging atmosphere to both youth and young adults so to utilize their individual minds, bodies, and talents/gifts in a way that will make these youth and young adults productive males and females in society. The principle focus is that through Jesus Christ you can achieve success in a manner, which is neither destructive nor degrading to themselves or others. Soul-Full Productions helps youth and young adults to develop good, sound, decision-making skills which prepares them for challenges they will face in life. Thank you for taking the time and consideration to review this ministry material. Proposal for SOUL-FULL Ministry The problem: Many of youth and young adults today are using their GOD given talents/gifts in destructive ways instead of constructive ways due to poor decision making and having too much idle time in life. Thus violence, sexually explicit behavior, and drugs start to influence our youth and young adults lives (Music, Music Videos, Clothes, and Literature youth are bombarded with imply that the way to handle life problems and challenges is through violence, sexually explicit behavior, and drugs). Hip Hop/Rap is the most influential music among youth and young adults. Many of the songs have violent lyrics and suggest that killing is the way to survive. The majority of the music videos aired on television have women either naked or half-naked (private parts are blurred out), and soliciting themselves for money. Last, our youth and young male adult culture has lowered their standards to gang affiliations and drug dealing (In their minds this is the only way to make decent money & be a real man). The solution: Through my experience as a former BED schoolteacher I not only taught violent males and females, but also turned around those whom the educational system had given up on. I noticed that the youth and young adults spent the majority of their time after school watching negative music videos, listening to negative hip hop/rap, reading books that perverted GOD given talents/gifts and glorified making a living by being a gangster, gang member, or pimp. These youth and young adults also wore baseball caps and T-shirts that, although were stylish, displayed pictures of either guns or drugs on the clothing. I successfully achieved changing those youth and young adults through my positive and educational hiphop/rap CD, my easy to read book published on how you can survive and make a living using your GOD given talents/gifts without perversion, and my stylish inspirational SOUL-FULL WEAR clothing line which constantly reminds youth and young adults to include Christ in daily decision making. I was able to reach both youth and young adults and change their lives. The SOUL-FULL PRODUCTIONS ministry offers a realistic way for youth and young adults to survive and deal with life challenges through a Christian mindset that promotes non-violence and high self-esteem/self worth. What is needed: As you know it takes money to fund any worthwhile program. There are basic essentials that every ministry needs: a building/meeting place, and a reasonable operating budget to keep the operating ministry in existence. A consistent meeting place for the ministry is crucial. As we know, once you start up something it has to be a known â€œroutineâ€ that youth and young adults can always go to the same location (no moving from one place one week and a different place the next). An internet web-site for SOUL-FULL ministry has been created but needs continual funds to support the monthly fee. Due to fact I am the only financial source for the SOUL-FULL PRODUCTIONS, I come before you now and ask that you assist in help keeping youth and young on a positive SOUL-FULL path in life. Youth and young adults are able to relate to the SOUL-FULL ministry because it combines Christ with everyday things that influence their decision making and survival. I know with your help youth and young adults can be brought to Christ. Any money (dinero) contributions you decide to give will help support this ministry with will undoubtedly change lives!!!! Please make any checks or money orders out to SOUL-FULL or if you would like to donate by credit or debit card we are equipped to accept that to with our SQUARE card reader. GRACIAS & GOD BLESS!!!!
