Donnie McClurkin and Nicole C. Mullen are engaged and are tying the knot!
The couple had known each other for 15 years, and the first time they really had a chance to talk was when they were seated next to each other on a flight to the Ivory Coast, during which they spoke for eight hours.
The engagement news was published on Christian Post and here is what Donnie McClurkin says about settling down…
“Well praise God,” McClurkin responded. “Honestly, the only thing in my life that is missing is marriage. The only thing that is missing in my life that can cause real family, is marriage. Financially, I’m there. Spiritually, I’m almost there. Emotionally, I’m getting it together. But the only thing that’s missing out of everything that I’m doing locally, cross country and globally is that aspect that makes family, family — is that wife that would make man whole, that element that brings favor to man.”
The pastor went on to quote Proverbs 18:22. The verse says “he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” And that is what McClurkin says he’s looking forward to in this season of his life.
“I have a lot of great things, but I don’t have a good thing, and there’s favor that can only come through marriage to a man,” he continued.
The New York-based minister talked about spending his nights watching Cartoon Network until 2 a.m. and confessed that he has come to realize the missing part of his existence is to have a help mate.
“To have someone that I can love. I’m not saying to love me, ’cause there’s a lot of people that love me. I want someone that I can love, heal and comfort, protect and secure. That’s what I want,” he said.
