Bishop O. Kenneth Wells has been a driving force in Gospel music and in ministry as a paster, radio announcer, musician, and Gospel music industry leader and advocate. He has served as pastor of The Spirit of Love Church, San Bernardino, CA for over 25 years and is the founder and chairman of The Gospel Industry Network. He has now authored a candid and powerful book WHEN PERFECT IS NOT!: The Process Of Healing From Infidelity.
WHEN PERFECT IS NOT! is about the process of overcoming infidelity or cheating in marriages. Bishop Wells desires this book to be used as a manual for those who have unfortunately been chosen for the test of going through the process of healing from unfaithfulness in marriage. He shares wisdom with passion giving an account of his unfortunate experience so others might find strength and healing.
“I wrote this book to touch on some issues that are happening in the body of Christ that most people dare not talk about,” states Bishop Wells. “However, many people are experiencing the same thing. It is the enemy’s job to make us believe we are the only ones going through certain things. Therefore, we keep the pain inside and we live our lives in misery, but it is time to TALK, especially when you are a leader in the church.”
WHEN PERFECT IS NOT! encourages readers to unlock the guilt and shame of past mistakes or struggles or turn from the need to portray perfection in the sight of man. Additionally, Bishop Wells candidly addresses the essentialness of humility for ministry leaders and the astounding grace the sovereign God provides if we allow Him to.
“I thought we were the perfect couple but my perfect world would change in a matter of minutes from the tragedy of a confession,” Bishop Wells explains. “We as leaders in ministry need to stop acting as we have never been hurt and that it is easy to bounce back,” says Bishop Wells. “Tell your story and testimony so that you can help the next person.” (And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the Word of their testimony. Rev. 12:11)
While Bishop Wells is the recipient of many honors and awards and is a national icon among preachers and pastors, he remains a genuine tell-it-like-it-is preacher as evident in his book. His heart for serving God’s people remains the same as he focuses on service and not fame and prosperity, a rarity for a pastor and preacher of his caliber who holds two honorary doctorate degrees from Solomon Theological Seminary and Next Dimension University.
Bishop Wells is married to the beautiful and quintessential gospel vocalist Shervonne Wells. They have been married for 35 years and are blessed with four children.
WHEN PERFECT IS NOT! is available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
