DR. EARNEST PUGH IS ANSWERING THE CALL!
Gospel music’s leading man is starting a church in his hometown of Memphis, TN. Beginning March 3rd, Dr. Pugh will present WORD, WORSHIP and COMMUNION every first Sunday from 5-7PM at The Holiday Inn Suites, 5090 Copper Creed Rd, Millington, TN.
“I have fought this calling/assignment since I was 8 years old,” Pugh explains. “My great grandmother spoke over my future often saying: God is going to raise up a prophet in this region and son, it’s going to be you. You can run but you can’t hide. God is going to have his way.”
Pugh continues, “I rejected, denied, and even turned down a full music scholarship at Memphis State University to join the US Army (at 18 years old) to secure my unavailability in fulfilling the assignment there in my hometown. Recently, I reluctantly boarded a flight to Memphis for a concert and I heard the Lord clearly say: Why be a public success and private failure? I did not have full understanding on what that meant until my family members cornered me one day and said ‘Your gift is shared and appreciated globally, but we, as your family, feel neglected and left behind.’ That day I felt convicted and instantly began to seek the Lord for ways to pour into my own family, friends and community.”
