Rev. Jamal Bryant, the pastor of the mega-church New Missionary Baptist Church in suburban Atlanta, announced he is getting married. The ex-husband of “The Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant made the announcement about his fiancé Karri Turner to an explosion of cheers from the vast congregation in Lithonia, Georgia, on Sunday, May 26.

“Sometimes your blessing will be right in front of your eyes and you don’t even know. You don’t even know what God’s got for you… an amazingly beautiful woman, amazingly brilliant woman,” he said.

Bryant also announced that his soon-to-be wife, Karri Turner, recently procured her doctorate degree. As she walked across the stage to receive her diploma, Bryant said he had a divinely inspired epiphany. 

“The Lord said to me, ‘You big dummy, what are you waiting on?’ And I am so grateful to God that she has consented to be my wife.”

The former Baltimore pastor also shared the momentous occasion with his Instagram for his three-quarters of a million followers.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am, how happy my family is, how happy my children are and I hope my church is happy for me.”  

Bryant was married to Gizelle Bryant, 53, from 2002-2009, and they share three daughters: Grace, 19, and twins Angel and Adore, 18.

The two famously tried to reconcile after their divorce in 2019, but they called it quits for good during the coronavirus pandemic.
