The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International was founded by Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. in 1994 and it has become one of the largest African-American church organizations in the world. Some of today’s greatest gospel vocalists were born from the organization such as Tasha Cobbs Leonard, William Murphy and JJ Hairston, among others. The Full Gospel Ministry of Worship is an offspring from the organization. It released its first album, Embracing the Next Generation, in 2008 and its sophomore set, One Sound, produced the Billboard Top 20 Hot Gospel Songs radio hit “Big” in 2013. Over the last decade, those projects have heavily contributed to the shape of the sound of praise and worship music in the African-American church with the popularization of anthems such as “For Your Glory” and “How Great Is Our God.” Bishop Joseph W. Walker III currently serves as FGBCF’s International Presiding Bishop.
