MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Josh Atkinson is probably not what you expect when you think of a hip-hop artist, or a teacher of religion. But the 6'6" Milwaukee Lutheran High School teacher is the kind of person who defies expectations.
Atkinson is showing success in preparing students for a lifelong relationship with Jesus by speaking their language, using the musical genre of hip hop to engage teenagers and to teach them positive, Christ-centered lessons.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Winnie Dortch put Atkinson, his non-profit ATK Ministry, and his students in the Sunday Morning Spotlight.
