John Lanier

John Lanier is an inspiring and anointed man of God known for his dynamic preaching and singing. Since 1989, he has traveled throughout the US and abroad proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through word and song.

The oldest of four siblings, John Lanier was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. At an early age, he became a Christian and soon after, gospel music became his passion. He began singing in his church, leading the worship with his parents who taught him the importance of spirit-filled ministry.

Following high school graduation in 1983, John worked as a radio personality in Christian broadcasting for several years. John began his singing career in 1989 as a vocalist with the legendary Naomi & The Segos. In 1993, he relocated to Alabama and joined friends Tony Gore and Calvin Thornton to form the new trio, Tony Gore & Majesty. God continued to broaden his territory when John pursued a solo ministry beginning in 1996. Since that time, John has been blessed with opportunities to present the Gospel through television, radio, revivals and crusades, the distribution of various teaching resources, anointed music and the world-wide web.

In Charleston, WV on New Year’s Eve, 2004, Tony, John and Calvin reunited for a special ‘reunion appearance’ of the original Tony Gore & Majesty. The response was immediate and emphatic. The trio came to an agreement and a decision was made. While each would continue their separate careers, a limited number of dates would be scheduled for reunion appearances. The “Tony Gore & Majesty ENCORE Tour” launched in June 2005 and continues to bless audiences everywhere.

As a singer, John exuberates the joy of serving Jesus and encourages believers to worship freely, inviting the Holy Spirit to work in their lives. As an evangelist, John’s passion is to win the lost to Jesus Christ and to rekindle the fires of revival in the church. The central message is the cross – Christ crucified and resurrected. John Lanier is committed to preaching the truth of God’s Word without fear or compromise.

Audio and video combined, John has 24 recordings to his credit, including two of the nationally televised ‘Gaither Homecoming’ video series. In 1999, John hosted the ‘Millennium Tour of the Holy Land’, where his performance of the hit song, “Jerusalem” was filmed on location and broadcast in Europe. John is also a featured performer on the annual SGM FanFair and Victory Voyage Christian cruise.

John has received multiple top ten and top five nominations for various awards as presented by The Singing News Fan Awards, The SGM Fan Awards and The Diamond Awards. Recently, the 2007 SGM Fan Awards honored John as “Favorite Soloist” as voted by gospel music fans and readers of The Christian Voice Magazine.

Through God-ordained preaching and singing, John is able to effectively communicate the message of the Gospel. For more than 17 years John has led thousands of people into heartfelt worship through concerts, revivals, crusades and conventions across the US and abroad. Through the outreach of John Lanier Ministries, many people have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, bodies have been healed, marriages restored and many Christians have been able to grow spiritually and make positive life changing decisions.
