Pastor Donnie McClurkin is Senior Pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY. He may be best known as an anointed 3-time Grammy Award-winning gospel singer who has sold over 10 million albums worldwide. Pastor McClurkin has also been presented with several other accolades including 10 Stellar Awards and an NAACP Image Award.
Formerly an assistant to Pastor Marvin L. Winans at Perfecting Church in Detroit, MI for over 11 years, McClurkin was ordained in 2001 and established the New York church under Pastor Winans. The church started with approximately two hundred members and has since grown to a membership of nearly 3,000.
Pastor McClurkin’s life, however, has not always been one of celebration and triumph. At 8 years old he experienced tragedy and trauma early in life when the 2-year-old brother in his care was killed by a speeding driver. Then, on the day of his brother’s funeral, he was abused by an uncle. He found solace in the church and in singing, under the tutelage of an aunt who sang with Pastor Andraé Crouch.
In his teens, he formed the McClurkin Singers with his sisters, and later, the New York Restoration Choir. He now shares his heartfelt testimony of overcoming his battles with sin as a result of this childhood trauma as his ministry reaches out to those who are lost and hurt.
THE SPIRIT OF EVANGELISM
Evangelism is close to Pastor McClurkin’s heart. At the Church Of God In Christ’s 2016 AIM Convention in Cincinnati, OH, he urged attendees to see evangelism in a new way. “Missions start right across the street,” said McClurkin. “We are all called to do the work of the evangelist. It is not a title: it is a way.”
To reach the community’s most vulnerable citizens, Perfecting Church spearheads the annual Church Without Walls (CWOW) crusade. The crusade takes the evangelism to the streets and also conducts community health fairs and clothing drives for the homeless.
Pastor McClurkin is also the Founder and President of “The New York Call,” a coalition of over 100 pastors throughout the Tri-State area. The coalition reaches across denominational, ethnic, and social barriers to bring the body of Christ together in unity and peace. The annual event draws 15,000 – 17,000 attendees.
