Bishop Paul S. Morton
Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. was born in Windsor Ontario, Canada but was destined to move to the United States. God had a special calling on his life that extended far beyond the Canadian borders. In 1972, he moved to New Orleans, Louisiana. Not long after, he became the Senior Pastor of the Greater Saint Stephen Missionary Baptist Church where he has served faithfully for over thirty years. In the early 90's, he became the founder and leader of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International.
After hurricane Katrina, at God’s command, he passed the mantle to his wife, Debra B. Morton, who now serves as Senior Pastor of the mother church in New Orleans. Bishop Morton now serves as Senior Pastor of the "baby" church, G.S.S. Changing A Generation, in Atlanta, Georgia. Bishop Paul S. Morton and Pastor Debra Morton now serve as each other’s Co-Pastor. Now "One Church in Two States", their slogan is "Changing The Way We Do Church!"
As an apostle, he has birthed many churches out of Greater Saint Stephen, New Orleans. Bishop Morton is also an international television preacher who, for over twenty-five years, reaches thousands of souls for the Lord on a weekly basis. Morton is also a gifted author and an anointed singer, having received five Stellar Awards. His life in Christ is evidenced by his love and compassion for his family, the brethren and those who are lost. Many esteem him as a Pastor’s Pastor; a Leader’s Leader; His wife and children revere him as a loving husband and role model father. Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. who strives to exemplify the heart of God, is truly God’s Man!
In 2013 after 20 years as the International Presiding Bishop, Bishop Morton announced that Bishop Joseph W. Walker, III will succeed him as Presiding Bishop of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International. The succession occured in 2015 at which point Bishop Morton retired from the position.
