Led by Pastor Derwin L. Gray, Transformation Church (TC) began with a group of 178 people who believed in God’s vision to be a multiethnic, multigenerational, mission-shaped community. God provided and transformed a warehouse with green Astroturf, batting cages, and no parking lot, into a worship space. Prior to our first Sunday, on February 7, 2010, Pastor Derwin prayed for 700 people to come. 701 showed up. Since then, TC has welcome thousands of people from diverse backgrounds to form one family.
TC was recognized as the 2nd fastest-growing church by percentage in America for 2010 by Outreach Magazine. It was also recognized in 2011-2012.
Started an extension campus at Kershaw Correctional Institution. Since then God has opened the doors for another campus at Lee Correctional Institution as well as outreach opportunities at Camille Correctional Institution, and Catawba Pre-Release Center. Launched Icono, a church plant in Madrid, Spain, led by Pastor Joel Maceiras.
The semi-annual High-Definition Leader Roundtable (based on Pastor Derwin’s book of the same name) was launched in October 2015. This Roundtable encourages and equips church leaders in how to develop and lead multiethnic churches.
Relaunched the HD Leader Roundtable as the Multiethnic Church Roundtable.
