5K Donation In 2019

This year looking for sponsors to help us donate 5K (Five Thousand dollars) to St. Jude when I participate in the 5K run this September.

We participated last year and had a blast, this year will only be better. We even have a team ready to run with us.

All proceeds from the book sales will be used towards reaching our goal.

This is a great resource that so many people need to assist them with navigating through the emotional side of any type of diagnosis. So if not for you, grab a few for friends.

Click on the link and purchase your copy today. We will even deliver it to the charity/person of your choice, just provide the address.

Thank you in advance for your support!


Help For The Holidays

Help me bring a smile to ​families this holiday season. No cost to you, just help me spread the word and/or email me the name of a family that I can cheer up. Thanks in advance for your help!  



What a week it has been for me! While I have enjoyed inspiring all of you through blogs, encouraging text, and social media status’ I have had some challenges of my own to deal with. I have had many things to grab my attention from several different directions.
Even through my challenges, I try to find a way to be thankful!

Here are 3 things that I am thankful this week.

1- Seeing my mom sit in a chair
My mom has been in the hospital for the last 93 days. Yesterday, for the first time the nurse and medical assistant got my mom out of bed and allowed her to sit in a chair. Talk about clicking heels and stomping with praise! On many of my previous visits at best they would sit the bed up high, but yesterday as my mom sat in the chair I talked with her and even got a little smile out of her. Its HUGE to me! I felt like she was out of bed just for me!

2- Employment or better employment
On a weekly basis we make this declaration during our time of giving at Vibe Church. As I left work Thursday evening, I began to really thank God for a place to call work. In a time when many are looking for jobs and having major struggles, Im so thankful that I am gainfully employed. I am a giver and have a clear understanding that one has to have in order to give.

3- A healthy family
My children and the best and the worst all at the same time. lol But seriously, when you have buried one of your children it changes how you view them. Im so thankful that my children are healthy, focused and working hard at accomplishing their own goals that they have set for themselves. In a time when marriage is not taken very seriously, Im so thankFUL that my wife and I are about to celebrate our 20th wedding Anniversary. Its pretty cool to have someone to do “life” with. We have had all kinds of days; great, good, bad, broke, days of plenty, sad times, happy, exciting, fun but most off all we have made it through the test of times and preparing for the greatest days ahead.

I have honestly noticed that being thankful really helps lift some stress out of our situations.
Think about it, review your week and see how many things you can come up with that you are thankful for and make your way to a church tomorrow and rejoice with other brothers and sisters.

The Health Benefits Of Having A Thankful Outlook


What is today? “Hump Day” We are almost to the weekend! I pray that you have been enjoying the blog post so far. Check out my third installment on why we should be thankFULL.

3) The Health Benefits Of Having A Thankful Outlook

What would happen if you stretched out your tradition of thanksgiving beyond the holiday season? Studies show that you would be rewarded with better health! Research shows that the positive emotion of thanksgiving promotes a healthy mind, body and spirit, in the following ways:

Bolsters self-esteem and self-worth; boosts the immune system; maintains a healthy heart by reducing stress and high blood pressure; cope better with stress and daily challenges; feel happier and more optimistic; have improved mental alertness; diminishes negative feelings; better sleep



There are so many wonderful things happening at VIBE CHURCH and I just wanted to take a few moments of your time today and share just a few of the many things that I am excited about.

1- “Showtime” at Vibe Church this Wednesday Night at 7PM
Whatever walk of life you are in, one thing that is constant with everyone is challenge. I feel a strong press in my spirit to encourage my brothers and sisters in the faith. This Wednesday we will take a dive into the scriptures about one simple challenge in the bible that turned into what seemed like a “showtime” event for all that were present.

2- Power Couples fellowship this Friday night in Brier Creek at 7PM
Its that time again for First and I to host our Power Couples Fellowship. I believe this is a very appropriate time to host this fellowship without our children while we are teaching the family series entitled “Blended”. This evening promises to be filled with Laughter, Encouragement, Empowerment and Inspiration. This event is free and open to the public. We just ask that you register by emailing pastortyrus@gmail.com and we will respond with all of the event details.

3- Conclusion of the “Blended” family series this weekend
This series has been nothing short of amazing and definitely a joy for me to teach. Sermon topics like; The Family Foundation, Can I trust you and Can I ask you a question. This weekend I will wrap it all up. Bring the entire family!
If you are seeking a place where everyone can enjoy the Sunday experience and receive at every life stage, visit http://www.vibechurchnc.com this weekend. It will be 90 unforgettable minutes!

4- CD’s from the “Flip Flops” and “Blended” series will be available this weekend
We have had some very powerful teaching at the Vibe Church this entire year! More specifically this last two months we have focused on relationships and families. This weekend, you will be able to purchase copies of the most recent teaching series in the hospitality center at Vibe. There are just some things that you want to be a part of your media library.

You are invited to join us for the entire month of October as Vibe Church goes pink in recognition of breast cancer awareness month.
We will have our pink life t-shirts available for onsite purchase every weekend. I will kick off the “POWER” series. You should come and bring some of your closest family and friends. I want you to wear your wildest and wackiest pink outfits this month. It promises to be great!
