Transformation Church (TC) was started in 2010 and is led by Pastor Derwin L. Gray. We want to join God in His mission by embodying our vision to be a multi-ethnic, multi-generational, mission-shaped community that loves God completely (Upward), ourselves correctly (Inward), and our neighbors compassionately (Outward). We hope this podcast will be a tool in which the life-transforming love of Jesus Christ reaches the lives of many!
Beneath the Surface: Workaholism
In this sermon, Pastor Derwin and Vicki Gray unpack the topic of workaholism. Hard work is a gift from God but can be dangerous when it becomes a god. How can we shift our mindset and allow work to become worship? As we press into Christ, we can work for the Lord instead of working for ourselves.
Beneath the Surface: People-Pleasing
It may be tempting to constantly try to please those around us, but people-pleasing can never provide our heart’s satisfaction. When we rest in Christ, we are met and sustained by His unfailing love.
Beneath the Surface: Misdirected Ambition
Ambition is a gift when it’s Jesus-centered, but what happens when it isn’t? In this sermon, Pastor Derwin unpacks the dangerous idolatry of ambition and how we can topple this idol with the Spirit’s power.
A Paradox of Hope: The Poor King
Pastor Derwin Gray teaches on how Jesus is the poor King. Throughout Scripture, we are reminded that material wealth is fleeting and that true wealth is found in the person of Jesus. As we follow Him, we become rich in Christ.
A Paradox of Hope: The Rule-Breaking King
In this sermon, Pastor Derwin Gray teaches us how Jesus is the rule-breaking King. Following Jesus will often mean deviating from the norm and behaving counter-culturally. Jesus is not hindered by ethnic, gender, or class barriers, and He invites us to embody His mission as we follow Him.
A Paradox of Hope: The Friendly King
Pastor Derwin Gray brings a message on how King Jesus befriends the friendless and cares for outcasts and sinners. In His kindness, Jesus invites the unqualified to live on mission with Him and embody His Kingdom.
