Muskegon Community College’s Center for Experiential Learning is proud to present Rev. Stephon Ferguson. From the pulpit of historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia to Madrid, Spain, Rev. Ferguson has traveled the globe performing as one of the greatest leaders in the history of the world. He breathes life into the words of Dr. King, captivating people of all ages.

When you listen to the strong and powerful words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. performed through Stephon Ferguson you may think you’re listening to Dr. King himself. That’s just how close Ferguson sounds to the late minister and civil rights leader. Many who have experienced Fergusons’ performances describe his King renditions as “unbelievable” and “pitch perfect“.

Rev. Ferguson will bring the spirit of Dr. King when he joins us in Muskegon.
