History

CALLED TO LEAD

Transformed Life Church (TLC) is a vibrant, rapidly growing church led by Senior Pastors, Reverend Dwight Fletcher, J.P. and Reverend Joan Fletcher, J.P..

The ministry began in September 2011 with once-monthly preview services and a congregation of 58 persons. On Sunday January 8, 2012, TLC’s first weekly Sunday service was held at the Police Officers’ Club main hall at 34 Hope Road, Kingston 6, Jamaica. The Church office was installed at Suite 15, Shortwood Professional Complex in Kingston 8.

The milestones in our history are our memorial of the goodness of the Lord (Psalm 27:13).
