b. 1959, Supple, Oklahoma, USA. This Christian singer-songwriter has been recording albums since the early 90s, but his ministry work dates back even further. Long resident in Oklahoma, the driving force behind Jerniganâ€™s work is the â€˜conversionâ€™ from homosexuality that occurred in his early twenties. Professing his love for Jesus apparently broke his desire for same sex relationships, and by 1983 Jernigan had married a woman and was on his way to siring a large family. He was inspired to start a ministry by his personal experience, and has preached all over the world about his deliverance from his past sins. Whatever the non-Christian population thought of Jerniganâ€™s views on homosexuality, and the notion that a person can be cured of his sexual preferences, he has also enjoyed a popular recording career that has included some crossover success on the mainstream American charts. Making his recording debut in 1991 with Thereâ€™s Coming A Day, Jernigan has continued to release a steady stream of well-produced singer-songwriter albums based around his piano playing and sermonising vocals.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
