Street Revival Ministries
Who We Are
Street Revival is a label/ministry comprised of Sebastian “Sebass” Pettes, Justin “Justmix’n” Johnson and other artists. As a duo, Sebass and Justin travel throughout the city of Houston and beyond, performing at various churches and prisons. They’ve been blessed with opportunities to share the Gospel message at local neighborhood events, drug-and-alcohol rehabilitation centers, and musical events.
Justin came to know the Lord in 2003. He married in 2004 and has served in several ministry roles within the local church for over 10 years. He is currently seeking to further his spiritual growth through ministry training and education.
Sebass has been writing and recording music for 12 years. His music once glorified things of the world, but he now uses his talents to glorify Christ. He uses his past experiences to minister to the lost — particularly the younger generation.
What We Are
Street Revival Ministries was founded on Isaiah 61:1-4:
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning,The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” And they shall rebuild the old ruins, They shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations. (NKJV)
Sebass and Justin strive to make music that will impact the lost and edify the church. Their music is a representation of who they are and the lives they seek to live. Street Revival has a two-fold mission: to worship with the Body by bringing their style of praise (gospel rap) into the Sanctuary, and to take their music outside the church’s four walls and into the streets. No matter the venue or audience, Street Revival’s message is always the same: to musically proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sebass and Justin met in 2011 at a church fellowship. They were united through a common love of music and a heart for the lost. Both brought their own unique style and talent to the group. And while their musical abilities may differ, there is no denying their love to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. it is what created the bond, and it is their love for Jesus that allows them to keep making music together.
Sebass and Justin understand that Street Revival Ministries cannot do what it does without the help of others. Their family and close friends are their biggest supporters and encouragers. Living Word Fellowship Church (their home church) has played a big role in their music ministry. Sebass and Justin appreciate the church’s financial support and prayers.
Street Revival Ministries use their music and ministry as a means to tell the world about God’s amazing love and grace. They continually pray that the Lord will keep using them as a channel, to reach a generation of people, drawing them closer to Him, through the musical notes of gospel rap.
