Vernon Gordon can be described as transparent, practical, passionate, textual, and humorous just to name a few. He believes, “The best sermon preached is the one lived!” Using the avenues of words, lyrics, melodies and harmonies, Vernon paints the world with emotions and life’s revelations through his walk. As an Osteogenic Sarcoma (bone cancer) survivor from a single parent home, Vernon channeled his own insecurities in to fuel for more faith and molded the outcome into his present ministries. His unique tone resonates beyond the microphone on Sunday with an impact that last far beyond any altar call.
With a heart for youth and young adults, Vernon joined the ministerial staffs at Spring Creek Baptist Church as the Youth Pastor and Minister of Music in Midlothian, VA, and Virginia Commonwealth University as Campus Pastor in Richmond, VA, in 2010. Both positions were obtained while studying for his Masters in Divinity from Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University, where he graduated in May of 2013. In harmony with his vocal group Vernon Gordon and Elevated Worship (affectionately known as VG&EW) in 2012, Vernon birthed his first musical project entitled “Independence Day.” This debut album release garnered national attention with singles such as: “I Am,” “Forward,” “Be Still and Know,” “Free,” and the worship anthem “Let the Rain Pour,” featuring JoJo Martin.
