In addition to his ministry achievements, Pastor Winans is a multiple GRAMMY®, Stellar, and Dove winning recording artist, as well as one-fourth of the legendary gospel quartet, The Winans, with whom he recorded such beloved hits as “Tomorrow”, “Ain’t No Need to Worry” and “It’s Time.” His background in music has been put to good use at Perfecting Church, where his songs are sung weekly and have appeared in various recording projects featuring the church’s praise band and choir, including the church’s 2012’s The Praise & Worship Experience, which Pastor Winans produced.
Of his milestones and legacy in ministry, Pastor Marvin L.
