George Furlow

I was born in the town of Grafton, WV. I moved from Grafton to Washington DC and on to Cumberland, MD and then on to Baltimore, MD. Our family finally settled in Pittsburgh, PA where I have lived for the past thirty five years. I attended Duquesne University and got a B.S.M.E of Music and a Master of Music in Saxophone. Since graduation of college, I’ve been a band director, teacher and Music Director/Associate Pastor at Covenant Church of Pittsburgh. In 1995, I felt God’s call to move in the area of full-time music ministry to share with the Body Of Christ in a broader way. Having been a music director and raised in a church that was full of worship, it was God’s plan to take those kinds of talents and experience into “All Nations”. In 2001 I returned to Covenant Church Of Pittsburgh where I am once again the Music Director/ Worship Pastor serving with Bishop Garlington, Denise Graves, Clarence Grant, Alton Merrel and Toni Turner.
