I have a confession!
“I love God and I love people, passionately!”
“Yes, it’s true! After experiencing the unrelenting love and breakthrough of God in my life, I have been changed forever!”
I was raised Catholic, and came into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and the overwhelming love of the Father, in 1997 while battling alcohol and drug addiction. My life was a mess…until l came to know “The healer of the broken hearted!” Thus began my journey of being “Wholly His…Spirit, Soul and Body.” His grace and mercy overwhelm me to this day! He opened my eyes to his Word, and l have been a student of The Word and The Spirit ever since!
“I met my precious husband, Alan, just a few short years after I came to Christ, and we have been on this amazing adventure ever since!”
Through the highs and lows, Jesus has turned our mess into a ministry, and our tests into a testimony that we share to equip others on their mountain-climb.
Our God is The God of breakthrough! His desire is for you to live free – indeed through Jesus Christ!
The Lord has graciously given me a platform to write and speak about my journey of faith. Not a day goes by that I am not floored by that fact. I do not present with any preconceived notions that He has given me this privilege because I am qualified for the task at hand. It is quite the contrary…
“I am nothing more than a poster-child for God’s grace and mercy. I am a work in progress. It is my prayer that when we meet online, at a conference, in the local church, or on the streets of the city, that the Lord will allow me to present His message to point, not to me, but to His grace, truth, and life-giving power!”
I am honored to serve The Body of Christ as Founder of One Voice Mississippi, a non-denomination, multi-racial, cross-generational call to intercession for the region and nation. I also serve as State Leader for Reformation Prayer Network (RPN) under Dr. Cindy Jacobs. My heart for women and the family compelled me to establish the ministry of RefresHER, a ministry to Gods leading ladies, Thrive, a ministry that encourages Mothers and their preteen and teenage daughters to growing closer to God and to one another. It is my honor to serve along side other women in the Body of Christ in the efforts of gatHER, a faith based initiative to establish community and passionate relationships with other women and together with relationship with Christ! And finally, where would we be if we didn’t live out our faith in every area of life, in doing so I have also served on Christian Employee Resource groups during my tenor in the marketplace.
“I believe in the transforming power of unified prayer and declaration, in that, His Kingdom would come on earth as it is in Heaven.”
- My passion is fulfilled by seeing The Great Commission activated, and “The captives set free.”
- My calling is to lay firm foundations for people to follow Jesus with passion, to arise with courage, and to become an agent of change on the Earth.
Alan and I are Co-Founders of R3, The Movement; A ministry to Reach, Rescue, Redeem…those who have been affected by the modern-day plague of human-trafficking. We currently serve on Governor Bryant of Mississippi’s Taskforce for Human-trafficking as a part of the awareness committee, and believe that we can, and will, see the captives set free.
A peek into His grace within my personal life is the fact that I simply adore being a wife to my amazing husband, Alan, Mom to my fabulous daughter, Faith Marie, and grown son Kyle LaRue who now resides in Buffalo, NY.
Alan and I invested eight years into a Pastorate position, and were partners in planting The Summit Church, in Hernando, MS.
Our overall ministry is to…
- Establish people in their identity through Jesus Christ.
- To encounter His life-changing presence.
- To challenge all generations to become more courageous.
- To be a voice of hope that inspires a positive message of change.
Our core values are…
- To live whole-heartedly for Jesus Christ.
- To teach and demonstrate The Kingdom by preaching the uncompromised Word of God.
- To steward our own hearts daily.
- To cultivate His presence in our lives and others.
- To stir hunger in our fellow-man for God.
- To share the good news with all who will listen. To spread The Gospel to the local church, on the streets, and around many nations!
I know the best is yet to come!
“Tina’s ministry is best described as imparting power and purpose. She has a God-given ability to help those she ministers to realize their identity and destiny through Jesus Christ. Her whole-hearted passion for her family, and those that God has placed within her path, is second only to her passion for the things of God.” Alan Tatum
May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and He will do it. (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24)
