Worship artist, songwriter and author, Dennis Jernigan, will be in concert on Sunday, March 1, at 6:00 pm at Westside’s Dodge Road campus. The community-wide praise and worship event is open to the public.
You may not know his name or recognize his face, but the songs of Dennis Jernigan, such as "You Are My All in All," "Nobody Fills My Heart Like Jesus," "Thank You," "We Will Worship the Lamb of Glory," as well as hundreds of others, are sung literally all over the world.
Jernigan has released over 20 full-length CDs, multiple songbooks and folios, and has authored more than five books including his most recent, What Every Boy Should Know...What Every Man Wishes His Dad Had Told Him. His newest full-length CD is titled, Days of Awe.
A film documentary of Jernigan’s life was released in 2014. The film documents his journey of freedom from same sex attraction. Called Sing Over Me, the film is Jernigan’s personal detailing of how he became convinced he was gay...and how God, in turn, revealed to Him the Truth...and freedom. Jernigan has also penned his autobiography, also called Sing Over Me, which will be published in paperback and audiobook by Innovo Publishing.
Dennis and his wife, Melinda, have nine children (you read correctly...NINE), and make their home in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Celebrating 30 years of marriage, the Jernigans are now welcoming grandchildren into the clan!
