Marvin L. Winans, born to David and Delores Winans on March 5, 1958, the youngest of twins, and the fourth of ten children. Marvin’s musical genius was displayed at age four. From that time to the present, the musical ministry God entrusted to Marvin’s care has impacted the lives of several generations of people around the world. An exemplary lyricist and composer, Marvin’s songs reach and touch the soul and have earned him many awards. The birth of Perfecting Church occurred in the basement of Pastor Winans home, seven persons committed themselves to follow him as he followed Christ, and there the ministry was born. May 27, 1989 Perfecting Church held it’s first official service with the original eight (and a few guests), since that humble beginning, the membership has increased to over 3,000 members.
