Inspired People and EMI/Christian Music Group recently signed an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement. Jenkins, the senior pastor of the legendary Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, continues a long musical tradition at Fellowship, which released 25 albums under the leadership of Jenkins’ predecessor, Reverend Clay Evans.
Jenkins believes that music can be the basis of an urban Christian movement that attracts people in ways that many traditional mediums cannot. “There are opportunities to create amazing music and to create a meaningful movement around that music,” he says. “For us, this is not just a CD; it is a movement for God.”
