You may know the music of Dennis Jernigan before you know his name. Having penned songs that are sung in churches and worship gatherings over the entire world like, You Are My All In All, Thank You, Who Can Satisfy My Soul (There Is A Fountain), I Belong to Jesus, We Will Worship the Lamb of Glory, and many others, Dennis Jernigan is a worship leader, song receiver, and author, but more importantly, he is a husband and father. Married for 31 years to Melinda, they have nine children and make their home in Muskogee, Oklahoma where they are now welcoming grandchildren. Having been walking in freedom from his former homosexual identity since November 7, 1981, Jernigan takes great joy in sharing the grace and love of God with any who desire freedom in their own lives. Known for his worship songs, his gift for singing God’s heart over hurting people, as well as his ability to lead people into a deeper, freeing awareness of Father’s love in their lives, DJ spends a great deal of time encouraging others to embrace their true identity in Christ.
The life message of Dennis Jernigan can be summed up in one word. Freedom. That freedom has come with a price. Jernigan was born again through his faith in Jesus Christ…but the reality is that the battle for freedom from the lies of the enemy regarding his past identity has been ongoing. His greatest joy has come in seeking intimacy with Jesus Christ – and in the process, discovering greater depths of freedom than he ever realized. And he wants everyone else to know about the possibility of freedom in their own lives. Just check out his new testimony autobiography, Sing Over Me and you’ll see what we mean. Every song, every blog, every video, and every book he has written are all interlaced with the theme and hope and possibility
“Days of Awe” is his latest CD, a collection of 13 songs of worship and ministry. Dennis says, " I knew I wanted it to reflect the epic-ness of God Almighty...and I knew I wanted to create something the younger generations would be drawn to, yet not scare away my generation, timeless.”
If you lead people to freedom, they WILL worship.
