Former NFL Linebacker Plants Church…Makes it Transformational

Fox Charlotte ran a story this Sunday on the launch of a new church in the Charlotte area, called Transformation Church.

“This is an incredible day. Several months ago we had no building, no money, no anything, and now transformation church has been launched,”
Gray says. After serving as co-pastor at a church in South Charlotte, Gray is branching out, bringing his own style of ministry to Transformation Church.“That’s what we stand for, the multi-ethnic, multi-generational thing that Derwin has been preaching,” says parishioner Sonny Smith.

I have heard Derwin speak as a part of the Dare2Share Conference several times, and I pray that his fellowship will do much to build the Kingdom of God in the Charlotte area. There is a need to reach people using new methods to tell an old, old story.
