Hi I’m Jerry Gunnells -Baritone/Lead from Anniston, AL. My family and I are excited to become a part of Promised Land Ministry. Lisa and I are proud parents of 4 children-3 daughters with 3 amazing son-in laws and 1 son who will add a wonderful daughter in-law sometime after college. We also have one precious Granddaughter, our pride and joy. I am the son of a Baptist preacher, my Mom and Dad brought me and my 2 brothers up in the church and at one time we were all a part of the ministry together. I felt the call of God leading me into the singing ministry at an early age. During this ministry I have been a part of many groups which God has blessed beyond measure. We have been blessed to see lives change, lives healed, lives saved and rededicated. We have been praying and feel that God has led us to this ministry to continue His work. Please continue to pray for me and my family on this continued journey as we join Promised Land.
Virgil Williams - Lead / Baritone
Virgil started singing at a young age while singing with family at various get-togethers. After accepting the Lord in 1987 he desired to sing for Jesus. Him and his sisters formed a local group The Rejoicers where they shared the gospel in song to local churches. In 2002 he briefly had a solo ministry at which time he wrote and recorded 2 songs. After running from this calling for several years he finally decided to allow God to have complete control of his life and that’s when God laid Promised Land on his heart and he is now doing whatever God leads him to do. Virgil is married to Stacy Williams and they have 2 children. Colby and Lauren Richardson. Together they serve God in their home church of Mount Olive Baptist in Coker Al . They reside in Fosters Al . They love Alabama sports but more than that they love Jesus and serving Him.
