Renowned gospel singer, Donnie McClurkin, has more to share than just a song. He will soon be seen on television on a weekly basis sharing the spoken word. The New York based pastor/singer has inked a deal with RNN (Regional News Network) to air “Perfecting Your Faith” on WRNN-TV on Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. (ET).
The broadcast premiered May 17 and those in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut areas can check their local listings for exact channel and tune in for worship, inspiration and empowering messages.
The broadcast will launch regionally then expand to a national audience. The networks’ total basic cable and DBS Homes reaches over 5 million TV households. “Its my privilege to bring Perfecting Faith to the masses through our new television ministry. These practical messages and prudent instructions from the living Word of God will help you understand the will of God for your life. So get ready…as every bit of this television ministry helps you in Perfecting Your Faith!” Says McClurkin.
The weekly broadcast will feature sermons delivered by McClurkin from Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY where he is the senior pastor. The 2,700 member church opened its’ doors in 2001 and continues to grow as it increases its community outreach with annual events such as: Church Without Walls – summer services that are held outdoors at a municipal parking lot in Roosevelt, NY, Youth Explosions and the-ever popular New York Call (nycall.org).
The launching of New York Call, a coalition of pastors and churches throughout the tri-state area, was birthed in 2004. Families come together for a day of fun and activities highlighted by a fellowship in the park. Long Island’s Eisenhower Park has served as host to 17,000 plus people at the all day affair.
“We All Are One (Live in Detroit)” is a boldly eclectic collection from McClurkin, moving from the powerfully opener “Trusting in You” and the lilting call and response vibe of “You Are My God and King” (featuring a playful battle of the choir sections on the reprise) to the soul-soothing “Let the River Flow” and a duet with the ever-amazing Karen Clark-Sheard for “Wait on The Lord.”
