by Melody K. Smith | Presbyterian News Service

LOUISVILLE – The Synod of Mid-America executive and stated clerk, Landon Whitsitt, has put his creative talents to work in a YouTube rap expounding on General Assembly culture.

“No Sleep Till Portland” showcases verses like “I do what I do best because I am decent and in order” and “working for the church because it’s worth our while.”

Whitsitt is encouraging the use of the hashtag #nosleeptillportland for all those going to and supporting the work being done at the biennial event. In the midst of a busy time for all those involved with the 222nd General Assembly, Whitsitt offers an opportunity to laugh before the event begins.

The General Assembly begins on June 18 and ends on June 25. It is being held in Portland, Oregon. You can follow along with business on PC-Biz and news at
