Bishop Carlton Pearson, from the Netflix movie ‘Come Sunday,’ is the special guest tonight. He will address our country’s unrest and powerful transition towards equality and justice.
Carlton Pearson is a native of San Diego California, where he spent the first 18 years of his life with his parents and five siblings. After studying at the Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he majored in Bible Literature English Bible, he served as Associate evangelist for the Oral Roberts Association and the ORU Board of Regents for 15 years on its Board of Regents. He has received several honorary doctoral degrees. In 1977, Pearson founded Higher Dimensions Inc, and in 1981 a church in Tulsa, which grew to a 5,000 membership that met weekly. It operated a home for single mothers, one for ex-offenders returning to society, a full service licensed Counseling Center, prison and nursing home outreaches, a national Purity With Purpose Discipleship Program for men and women, with graduates nationally and internationally, a 645-acre horse Ranch for troubled Youth and Teens.
His annual Azusa conference, held on the Campus of the Oral Roberts University, saw attendance swell as high as some 50,000 during the week-long event. The popular conference helped give exposure to numerous now well-known and highly successful leaders, musicians, singers and public speakers who now enjoy an international platform and worldwide recognition.
A Stellar Award winning vocalist, Pearson has sold into the millions of CDs and videos with his recording contracts with Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, and Tommy Boy and has also been nominated for the Dove Award. Pearson’s frank and often controversial take on a number of different subjects has earned him appearances on television programs.
