Pastor TJ is married to his wife and partner in ministry Shunnae McBride and together they have three awesome children; Ashli, Andrew and Alexis. Pastor TJ and his wife, Shunnae McBride are great examples of faithfulness and teamwork. They work together in making sure that the church is successful and productive. Since 2005, the church has become a buzz in McDonough, GA. God is using T.O.P. in the city to feed people physically and spiritually, clothe the naked and minister to the whole man. Our Pastors have such a hunger for souls and the youth. They have established ministries to win the lost at any cost. We thank God that our Pastors don’t just preach the Word, but they live the Word. To God be the glory for the things he has done. topci.org @TOPChurchLive Click listen to the interview with Pastor McBride with host Hersey Coles
