Marvin Sapp . . . in a nutshell

From Marvin Sapp Ministries / website:

  • “Marvin Sapp was introduced to the gospel community by Fred Hammond as a six year member of the vocal group Commissioned.   “I am a preacher – called by God – who happens to sing,” is the way he defines his ministry – which was given its official blessing upon his receiving of the Doctor of Divinity Degree from Aenon Bible College and the Doctor of Ministry Degree from Friends International Christian University . . .”
  • “When he isn’t spreading the word of God through over 200 preaching and speaking engagements a year, Sapp ministers [in Michigan] at The Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids, where he is senior pastor.”

  • His song “My Testimony” was fueled my the passing of his 43-year old wife MaLinda in 2010 – after a bout with cancer.   A testament to his faith after losing his wife, the widower (and father of three children) also wrote “I Win” during this faith-testing time in his life.
  • As one 2012 article notes:  “He took time to share his testimony about what he has been going through since his wife passed and how things seemed at times like he was out of control but he knew God was still in control.” [Emphasis added]

O come, let us sing unto the LORD:

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

Psalm 95:1
