Called to Lead
Transformed Life Church (TLC) is led by Senior Pastors, Reverend Dwight Fletcher, J.P. and Reverend Joan Fletcher, J.P.. They have over 17 years of experience in church leadership and a heart for people from all walks of life. This journey began when Dwight and Joan committed their lives to God in 1995. As Dwight matured in the faith he felt a strong calling to teach and preach the Word of God.
In the summer of 1996 while reading his Bible, he was drawn to, and impressed by, Joshua 1:6 – “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them” (NIV). Over time as he read and meditated on the significance of this verse he realized that the Lord was directing him to a leadership role within the Church community. He left his job as a successful Sales & Marketing Manager to serve on staff at Swallowfield Chapel for approximately twelve years in various leadership capacities. During this period it became progressively clear that his call to ministry would involve starting and leading a church. As the years progressed this was confirmed in several ways – directly to Dwight and his wife, Joan, and prophetically through other Christians, including local and overseas ministers. Consequently, in submission to the call, and with the release and blessings of the elders of Swallowfield Chapel, in the summer of 2011, Transformed Life Church (TLC) was born. Dwight and Joan Fletcher were then ordained in Kingston, Jamaica, by Pastor R. Paul Earle of Life Network of Churches based in California, USA.
Pastors Dwight and Joan have a passion to see persons fulﬁl their potential. So TLC’s vision statement is “Transforming Lives, Transforming Love, Transforming Community”. Our goal is to change people’s lives to reflect the love of God in the church family, the wider community and the nations.
