Apostle Herman L. Murray

Apostle Herman L. Murray, Jr., is the pastor of the Full Gospel Holy Temple Church Headquarters of Dallas, and the Overseer of the Full Gospel Holy Temple Churches, Incorporated. He carries a powerful mandate of God in this 21st Century to boldly win souls for Christ. Millions have been captivated by the intensity of his anointed preaching and soothing heavenly voice under the power of the Holy Ghost. He is truly a man after God’s own heart. Apostle Murray began fulfilling his call into the ministry in 1993. From his youth, he became a recognized servant of the Lord and an anointed force who humbly yielded himself for service. Leading by example, he often placed himself willingly before God as an available vessel and an obedient servant to his leaders.

Apostle Murray received his honorary doctorate in 2008 from Victory Theological Seminary. In 2009, he was ordained Bishop, and joined the FGHT Council of Bishops during the Annual Holy Convocation. In 2011, following the passing of his legendary grandfather, the late Apostle Dr. Lobias Murray, founder of FGHT, Apostle Herman Murray was appointed Presiding Prelate and General Overseer. In April of 2014, through word of prophecy, God proclaimed him to be no more Bishop Murray, but Apostle Herman Murray, Jr.
