“Ministry is my passion and livelihood,” says composer, worship leader and licensed minister Rashad McPherson. Rashad has served in music ministry leadership for over 10 years and is currently Minister of Music at Bethel A.M.E. Church (Boston, MA). There he serves under the leadership of Rev. Dr’s Ray and Gloria Hammond.
In 2006, Rashad founded “DivinePURPOSE”: a group of singers and musicians poised and purposed to spread the message of the gospel through music. Since its inception, DivinePURPOSE has shared the stage with several of Gospel music’s most anointed and recognizable voices. This includes Darwin Hobbs, JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise, Benita Washington, James Hall and the Voices of Citadel, Tye Tribbett, Marvin Sapp, Donnie McClurkin, Leandria Johnson, Richard Smallwood, Kim Burrell, Jonathan Nelson and many more!
Sometime this fall, Rashad and DivinePURPOSE will release their highly anticipated sophomore release, titled: “Better Things, Brighter Days.” This record follows their debut record “More than I ever Had” which was very well received amongst gospel artists, announcers, bloggers, and aficionados. Their latest single “Reign in Majesty” was released to radio and digital outlets in February of this year. To date, “Reign in Majesty” has been played on radio stations across the country as well as abroad. Fans as near as Canada yet as far as India have supported the release.
“Better Things, Brighter Days” (to be released fall 2013) marks the continuation of an anointed and powerful music ministry. This record will feature guest appearances from Pastor J.P. Morgan, Jerome Kyles, Benita Washington, Nikki Ross, as well as Light Records Recording Artist: JJ Hairston.
Though Rashad is well seasoned in the ministry of gospel music, he has also accepted the call to minister the preached word. Rashad preached his first sermon November 27, 2011 and began work on his Masters of Divinity at Boston University School of Theology last fall.
