Nashville, TN (March 16, 2015) – Esteemed worship leader, author and recording artist Bishop Paul S. Morton has an inspiring musical extravaganza in store when he hosts a live recording this summer, to create his final full record. Performing live with the Greater Change Mass Choir, the award-winning artist will also welcome a host of guest stars to the stage, as they come together on this special concert celebration that caps his prolific career in ministry and over 30 years as a gospel recording artist. Taking place on Monday, July 13, 2015 in New Orleans at the Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church.
As he prepares to retire from an historic career in international ministry as the founder of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (FGBCFI), the outgoing presiding bishop’s global influence on gospel will be recognized with several milestones this year, including Bishop Morton being honored as the 2015 recipient of the James Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming 30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards on March 28th, and as an honoree by the Gospel Music Association’s upcoming GMA Honors 2015 on May 5th.

Filling the evening with invigorating ministry and powerful music, Bishop Morton’s live recording will be backed by the incredible sound of the Greater Change Mass Choir – a 100 person choir bringing together the acclaimed Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir and the Changing A Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir – for a culmination of the faith-infused vital ministry and musical talents that have fueled the Grammy®, Stellar and Dove nominated/winning artist’s ongoing growth and success. Bishop Morton’s live recording will kick off a full week of celebration of Bishop Morton’s career, including a special white tie gala honoring Bishop Morton presented by the FGBCFI, and this year’s Full Gospel Conference 2015.
Since its inception by Bishop Paul S. Morton, the FGBCFI has grown nationally and internationally, celebrating over 20 years of change and impactful ministry in 2014, with thousands of locations.
