Earnest Pugh scores #1 album & new Minister of Music position at Houston church


Earnest Pugh scored a #1 with the release of ‘The WIN (Worship In Nassau)’ on the Billboard gospel chart this week. The project was recorded live in the Bahamas, a part of the ‘One Love Gospel Cruise.’ Pugh also reportedly began working as the minister of music of Lighthouse Church in Houston, TX, where Keion Henderson is the pastor.

His relationship with the church is not new; he was a guest at Lighthouse in 2012 during their Easter worship service, and recently held an album release concert there. Well-wishers, including members and Pastor Henderson, congratulated him on his Billboard success.

The gospel star has served as minister of music of another Houston-area church, Silverlake, since August 2012. Stay tuned for further details.
