For those who are concerned/curious, Min. Hanq Neal did have a heart attack last night. His current status is one that requires much prayer. There will likely not be any further updates until tomorrow at the earliest. What we do know is that Hanq is a fighter and God is faithful!

Hanq Neal joined a group known as the Pentecostal Ambassadors during the 70s, which signed to a recording contract by gospel legend James Cleveland. He also recorded GMWA Mass Choir’s 1989 version of The Good Shepherd.

In 1984, he became minister of music at Windsor Village United Methodist Church.
