Traveling the country while speaking and performing in front of thousands, Devin Turner is a pastor and hip-hop artist who is making major headway. His latest album, Luminary, debuted at #122 on the top 200 hip-hop/rap albums on iTunes. He has also shared the stage with Billboard Chart topping artists as well as Grammy, Dove and Stellar Award winners including Lecrae, Fred Hammond, Flame, Da’ T.R.U.T.H. and Trip Lee just to name a few. Although he has a passion for Christ and a talent for sharing his faith in creative ways through his music, Devin hasn’t always been the Christ-centered speaker and lyricist that he is today.
As a freshman in high school, Devin was confronted with obstacles that many teenagers face which caused him to question God's existence. As a result, he began affiliations with known drug dealers in his school. Tupac Shakur and his big brother were the two people he looked up to the most. But, when Tupac was murdered and his big brother got into serious trouble with the police, it didn’t take long for Devin to realize that the results of living a life outside of the will of God were not the answer.
Soon after, Devin started reading the Bible consistently and making Christ-centered music. He also led a daily Bible study in his high school during his junior and senior year. After graduating high school, he attended Bowie State University (BSU), where he led a Bible study as a leader of Campus Crusade for Christ's Impact Movement. Once he graduated from BSU, Devin was hired as a Youth Minister and was later ordained as a youth pastor at Zion Church in Largo, Maryland.
Now as Lead Pastor of Revolution Church in Washington, DC and CEO of Disciples Thru Media, Devin has found a way to make a difference in this world. Every week he ministers to hundreds of people through his messages and music, giving them the assurance that hope and purpose can only be found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Devin and his wife Lenneil Turner reside in Washington, DC with their two sons, Justus and Jairus.
