Our Pastors

Church for The City was founded as Calvary Temple of Christ in July of 1993. The
purpose is to help people far from God find life in Christ. Pastor Tyrone and Virginia love
the city of Yuma and desire to connect people to Christ, the church and their divine
purpose in life.
Pastor Tyrone and Virginia serve locally and globally, teaching, preaching and
strengthening leaders and pastors. Pastor Tyrone is part of The Apostolic Leadership
Team (ALT) of Ministry Fellowship International (MFI) that oversees and supports
church leaders worldwide. His teaching and leadership gift has produced church plants,
leadership schools and global missions throughout The Kingdom of God. Along with
CTC in Yuma, AZ, locations have been launched in San Luis, MX, Chandigarh, India,
and Giyani, South Africa. However, their greatest passion is the local church.
Pastor Tyrone and Virginia have eight children. Liana (Alex), Tyrone (Karina), Eli
(Laura), Obed (Natalie), and Tecia reside in Yuma. Jermaine (Joanna) lives in Mesa,
AZ; Tiffany in Scottsdale, AZ; and Malachi in Phoenix, AZ. They are also blessed with
nine grandchildren.
