In his younger years, he was the youth choir director at his father's church and the founder of a vocal group known as the Junior Progressives.
Bishop Morton graduated from the J. C. Patterson Collegiate Institute, then attended St. Clair College, where he excelled in music. In 1972 Morton moved to New Orleans, Louisiana and to the Greater St. Stephen Missionary Baptist Church (now known as Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church) under the pastorate of Reverend Percy Simpson, where he became an assistant pastor. Soon after arriving in New Orleans, Morton attended and graduated from Union Baptist College and Theological Seminary.
In December 1974, Pastor Simpson died and the then Assistant Pastor Morton was installed as senior pastor in January 1975. Upon becoming the church's new pastor, Morton began to commit to a mission to "help people reach their ultimate potential spiritually" in their relationships with Jesus Christ by teaching them to operate in "spirit over mind." Under Morton's leadership, both the financial growth and the growth of the congregation would increase dramatically.
Shortly after his appointment as senior pastor of St. Stephen MBC, Morton married the former Debra Brown, in December 1977. Together they have three children: Jasmine, Paul Jr., and Christiann. Later, his son Paul Jr. became a musician, called PJ Morton.
In 1980, Greater St. Stephen MBC had begun its initial move from their original 600 seat sanctuary facility to a 2000-seat facility adjacent to the original edifice. During this period the church began to grow from 647 members to over 20,000 members presently, expanding to three church locations in the Greater New Orleans area. Collectively Greater St. Stephen FGBC offered eight worship services per week. five services on Sunday, and two Word Explosion services on Wednesday, and a Friday night Deliverance Service.
In 1992, Bishop Morton helped to co-found the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, a movement to lead and teach born-again Christians primarily in the Baptist denomination, how to operate in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, while becoming more strongly grounded in their faith in Jesus.
In 1997, the ministry purchased an Army Naval Base and renamed it St. Stephen City. This new development provides affordable housing to more than 75 families, also an apartment complex, St. Stephen Manor which provides housing to over 50 families. Also in 1997, the ministry purchased an office building which now houses the new corporate headquarters, home to the ministry's daily operations, and to several other community businesses.
In addition to being a preacher and educator, Bishop Morton is a singer. In 1999, Bishop Morton released his solo CD (album) entitled Crescent City Fire.
In 2002, Bishop Morton became the CEO of Tehiliah Music Group, with Pastor Jerry Q. Parries, pastor of Christian Family Worship Center in Orlando, Florida, serving as its president. Tehillah Magazine is a lifestyle publication aligned with Tehillah Music Group.
In 2003 Morton recorded the single "Let It Rain", then in 2006, following the Hurricane Katrina disaster, and after surviving a battle with cancer, he recorded the song "I'm Still Standing". Included among his other musical accomplishments are five albums with the Greater St. Stephen Mass Choir and two recordings with the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship Mass Choir. He was also featured on the all-star recording of the hit song, "Something Inside So Strong" a tribute to Rosa Parks.
The son of Matilda Morton and Church of God in Christ bishop C.L. Morton, he later married Debra Brown, with whom he had three children.
