While many are embarking upon new ideas, new innovations, new books, new wardrobes, and new attitudes, one person is looking at his future through new lens. Elder Brandon Tucker, who is now Pastor Brandon Tucker, has set his sails to expand upon a vision that the Lord gave him for unchurched people in the city. It's a NEW LAUNCH!
August 31st was a new beginning for Pastor Brandon and Lady Tia. You see Elder Brandon had served at Greater New Psalmist in several roles prior to the Lord speaking to him about starting a new work. He stated that he was a very young man who was blessed to have served for 15 years under the tutelage of Bishop Dr. Brehon Hall who licensed him as a Minister in March, 2006. He reported that he received many meaningful elevations while at New Psalmist and am so grateful to have been called to preach, become ordained, and serve as Youth Minister, Youth Pastor, and Executive Pastor during his tenure there.
The launching of Transformation Church was not just a word to him but he needed confirmation after God had spoken, stating that it was time for him to branch out and go. Two days later, his wife confirmed through words that she had heard God speak to her: " Honey, I don't know what this means but God said that we are suppose to start a work ". He knew that this was the confirmation that he needed to move out in the things of God in his new role.
He stated that he never felt that he would be in a role other than being second. And now that he is determined to serve God's people, he believes that this church, Transformation Church, will meet people where they are. He sees the church as being viable, targeted, and relevant to meet the needs of the people.
Transformation Church's Vision is to assist the congregants, which Elder Brandon intends to be children and families, to grow in God, providing the best tools for them to do just that, as well as to impact and influence the community. He believes that where the church will meet is strategic. Jones Leadership Academy Of Business is where The Transformation Church will hold its services. Pastor Brandon states that this location is definitely germane to the mission of the church. Because Jones Academy has undergone relevant changes for the betterment of the students and families in the area, the school has goals that Pastor Brandon believes will be enhanced by the presence of Transformation Church.
Pastor Tucker states that he wants the church to be an asset to the school. It is the goal of the church to network, collaborate with and partner in many initiatives that will be created to empower the students and enrich the lives of those who are connected to the school and the church. One Outreach effort that he is excited about is that of making sure that each family/child receives a Christmas gift from Transformation Church. He also will enable the school to began its Gospel Choir, along with a Mentorship program.
The first service that Transformation Church will hold is scheduled for November 4, 2018 at 11:30 A.M. Services will take place in the auditorium of the school located at 430 Nebraska Avenue, Toledo, Oh. 43604. For more information, you may visit the website at www.transformationc.com
