Bishop Marvin Sapp Retires From Michigan Church To Lead Church In Texas

By Posted on

Bishop Marvin Sapp is the latest Pastor to announce a God move.

Marvin Sapp announced to his congregation on Sunday that he is retiring as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

He has accepted the personal request of Bishop Richard E. Young to assume the role of Senior Pastor of Chosen Vessel Cathedral in Fort Worth, Texas. Bishop Young is a close family friend who is like an Uncle to Marvin Sapp, according to Eurweb.

“Transition and change isn’t easy after a certain age, it also isn’t easy for churches. I need God to release a spirit of peace that settles GR and Ft Worth during this time of major change,” Sapp shared on Instagram.

The Gospel singer’s last service in Grand Rapids will be in September. He will remain as chairman of the board of directors at Lighthouse Full Life Center.
