Over the past few decades there’s been a growing trend of gospel artists taking to the pulpit. Business savvy gospel artists have expanded their brands and become astute entrepreneurs whilst others have planted churches, guaranteeing them a steadier source of income.

Here are 7 of our favorite gospel artists who literally practice what they preach:

  1. Tasha Cobbs – No stranger to ministry, Tasha was thrust into the spotlight during her tenure at the dReam Center Church of Atlanta under the leadership of Bishop William Murphy III. After serving for 14 years there, she took up a position as Senior Worship Pastor at John Gray’s Relentless Church in 2018. 2020 saw Cobbs and her husband launch into the deep and plant their own church – The Purpose Place.
  2. Marvin Winans – Pastor Marvin L. Winans is the founder and pastor of Perfecting Church, one of Detroit, Michigan’s foremost congregations and a growing ministry family that extends far beyond its active local campus. Since heeding the call, Pastor Winans’ ministry has grown exponentially, from a humble gathering of eight in his own basement on May 28, 1989 to a membership of more than 4,500 faithful who congregate weekly in Perfecting’s expansive, 165,000 square foot site facility.
  3. Erica Campbell – Everyone’s favourite Mary is a pastor. She and husband Warryn oversee California Worship Center, a church called to Inspire, Love and Ignite Good. Campbell has since fully embraced her call to preach and can regularly be seen behind the pulpit at California Worship Center.
  4. Travis Greene – The “Made a way” hit maker founded Forward City Church in 2015 after receiving a call from God in 2013. Greene’s passion for college ministry dates back to his college years and this is the bedrock of Forward City which exists to engage and redefine culture.
  5. Deitrick Haddon – The “Preachers of L.A star” became a bonafide lead pastor in 2016 when he launched Hill City Church, with a mission to win 1 million souls in the LA and surrounding cities. Growing up as a preacher’s kid, Deitrick Haddon first sensed God’s call to preach at the tender age of 10. After serving as youth pastor at a church in Detroit, followed by a stint as worship leader at Paula and Randy Whites former church – Without Walls, Haddon has come full circle and is walking in his calling.
  6. Shirley Caesar – Pastor Shirley Ann Caesar Williams is an American Gospel music singer, songwriter, recording artist, author, and Pastor whose career has spanned six decades. Born in Durham, North Carolina, Pastor Caesar has served on the City Council in Durham. For more than 38 years, she has run an Outreach Ministry. Her Outreach Ministry serves the neglected and those in need in the community. Pastor Caesar has been the Pastor of Mt. Calvary Word of Faith Church in Raleigh, NC for more than 20 years, along with her husband and Co-Pastor Bishop Harold I Williams, Sr., to whom she has been married to for 26 years.
