They were entrusted with Transformation Church by the founding Pastor, Gary McIntosh after 15 years of operation. Their personal philosophy and driving passion is re- presenting God to the lost and found for transformation in Christ. Their mission is to place Christ in the center of culture to impact their community, city and world with the gospel presented in a relevant and progressive way.
In 2016, because of their obedience and the viral impact of the sermon series “Relationship Goals” they gained influence and the ability to reach millions of people all over the world.
