Granger Smith has announced that he is giving up touring to focus on gospel ministry.
The Texas-based country singer, who has been touring for more than two decades, revealed his decision in a video posted on social media.
“This summer is my last ever tour. I have felt a strong desire to pursue ministry,” Smith said. “This doesn’t mean I’m going to start a church or a crusade, or a revival. This means me and my family are going to serve our local church.”
“We’re going to pour into that church as members and have my pastors and elders pour into me and disciple me and teach me as I sit under their wise teaching,” he continued. “Then Lord willing, one day they can affirm me into the next steps of what that might look like to glorify God best from my platform.”
Smith said he has been spending a lot time pursuing his master’s degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
He also announced that his new memoir, “Like A River,” will be published on August 1.
The book revolves around the death of his son River by drowning in 2019, and the birth of his youngest child Maverick in 2021, among other things.
