Tyler Perry Studios to Host Bishop Neil C. Ellis at Press Gala on Thursday, March 18th at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta

March 17, 2010

ATLANTA, March 17 /PRNewswire/ — Tyler Perry Studios makes plans to host Bishop Neil C. Ellis and some 50 members of the US Media, at a special press gala and luncheon on Thursday, March 18th at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. This event marks the national release of Ellis’ latest book, Pursuing the Glory, published by Pneuma Life Publishing. Neil C. Ellis is founder and senior minister of the 8,000 member Mount Tabor Full Gospel Baptist Church, based in Nassau, Bahamas; a chain of islands near the Florida Coast. He also serves as 2nd Presiding Bishop of the 500,000 member Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International, the second largest predominately African-American Christian denomination in the United States; founded by Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr.; and only second to the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) — founded in 1907 by Bishop Charles Harrison Mason.

In 2007, Ellis noticed complications related to what was then perceived to be a throat infection, which prompted him to seek the help of his Primary Care Physician. It was soon determined that he had severally damaged his right vocal cord, and was in desperate need of immediate repair; otherwise he would risk permanently losing his ability to speak and preach, if went untreated. Ellis agreed to surgery, and within a few weeks of voice rest from his first round in a series of surgeries; he began compiling sermon notes, which later became the book, Pursuing the Glory, and has become the central message of a new mandate he believes God has called him to. Joining Mr. Ellis in promoting this new message is colleague, and mega-church minister, Pastor Paula White, of Without Walls International Church, based in Tampa, Florida. “The body of Christ is in crucial times; we are in an age where we cannot afford to miss any opportunity to hear God — even when we experience test and trials. While many times our first instinct is to react to stressful, challenging, or difficult situations with fear and panic, Pursuing the Glory encourage believers to recognize how unforeseen trials can offer us periods of reflections…,” says White, who also wrote the book’s Foreword.

Among those offering personal endorsements and support is film director and producer Tyler Perry; actors David and Tamela Mann of Meet the Browns; Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr.; Pastor John K. Jenkins, Sr.; Bishop Walter S. Thomas; Bishop Joby Brady; Bishop Kenneth Ulmer, and Ellis’ longtime friend and popular televangelist Bishop Eddie L. Long, of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, near Atlanta. Bishop Ellis says he is extremely grateful for the encouragement, input and tremendous support of the friends and colleagues across America, who has already participated in the promotional tour of the pre-release edition of the book — which has sold over 10,000 copies. It is predicted by both critics and supporters alike that Pursuing the Glory is slated to appear on Amazon.com’s top 100 Best Selling Books over the next few weeks. Books will be available in April at retailers nationwide.
