Reverend John Morris

A native of Huntington, West Virginia, Rev. Morris began his singing and writing career at age six. At age fifteen, he started playing the piano, the bass and lead guitar. On June 15th, 1963, he received his call to the ministry. Being young and saved at such an early age, brought him very close to God and dedicated his life even more to the Church. He credits God for bringing him through those turbulent times by singing in the "Templaires".

After moving to Columbus, Ohio, he joined Grace Temple A.O.H. where he was promoted to Assistant Pastor at age nineteen. He formed the "Morris Specials" and began to write song after song. Traveling from city to city, he became more involved in evangelistic work. At age twenty, he was called to Pastor at the Sixteenth Street A.O.H. Church of God in Bessemer, Alabama.

After 34 years of ministry of music, Morris can see a history of appearances with such greats as Dorothy Norwood, Albertina Walker, Shirley Caesar, Rev. James Cleveland, Tramaine Hawkins, Keith Pringle, Commissioned, Williams Brothers, Rev. James Moore, Ruby Terry, Anthony Hill and many more. Rev. John F. Morris's musical career took an upward swing after being discovered by Dorothy Norwood in 1995. Her influence and guidance has caused Rev. Morris's release on Malaco Records called "God Reversed The Curse". He considers this a move of God to launch his music into every part of the earth. Truly, where much is given, much is required! It is a true saying; "Your gift will make room for you". We have heard great things from this talented writer, but we all believe that the best is yet to come.
