Why did we choose the name “We Would Rather Have Jesus?”
In this clip above, you hear the story behind how the song “I’d Rather Have Jesus” by George Beverly Shea came to be.
The preacher weeps as the choir sings.
This song also causes us to weep when we hear it. When we began sharing our story of coming out of the prosperity gospel movement, this song was very heavy on our hearts because it is our testimony. We would rather have Jesus than anything the world could offer us.
