  • by the partners and friends of Creflo Dollar Ministries.
  • 00:00:02.210 --> 00:00:04.030
  • Creflo Dollar: All of these heroes of faith were not
  • 00:00:06.270 --> 00:00:09.270
  • of the law, and the revelation that showed up that was really
  • 00:00:09.280 --> 00:00:15.210
  • radical, that most Christians were of the law and not
  • 00:00:15.220 --> 00:00:20.110
  • of faith, and that just simply meant we spent most of our time
  • 00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:24.060
  • trying to earn something, trying to do something
  • 00:00:24.070 --> 00:00:27.070
  • to get something.
  • 00:00:27.080 --> 00:00:29.030
  • And so, what stood out to me this past Grace Life Convention
  • 00:00:29.040 --> 00:00:31.170
  • was the fact that a religion of performance-based Christianity
  • 00:00:31.180 --> 00:00:36.110
  • has been created by church folks.
  • 00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:38.170

  • This is your world
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:13.160
  • so let's vow to make it a better place
  • 00:01:13.170 --> 00:01:18.080
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:18.090 --> 00:01:23.150
  • your love is here to stay
  • 00:01:23.160 --> 00:01:26.110
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life
  • 00:01:26.120 --> 00:01:30.030
  • Oh, let his love shine bright in you
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:34.140
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:37.180
  • so we embrace your love today
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:41.030
  • We are changed
  • 00:01:41.040 --> 00:01:45.040
  • Vic Bolton: Now Creflo, you are in Africa so much that when we
  • 00:01:48.100 --> 00:01:50.200
  • don't see you on a Sunday, we assume he's in Africa somewhere.
  • 00:01:50.210 --> 00:01:53.290
  • Talk about your connection to the African continent
  • 00:01:54.000 --> 00:01:56.210
  • and why you feel so driven to be active in that space.
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:02:00.150
  • Creflo: Well, it started off with a word from the Lord.
  • 00:02:00.160 --> 00:02:03.000
  • God told me, "I want you to spend a lot of time on the
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:08.010
  • continent of Africa, but don't open up any doors for yourself,
  • 00:02:08.020 --> 00:02:11.240
  • I'll open the doors up and let you know
  • 00:02:11.250 --> 00:02:13.220
  • where I want you to go."
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.210
  • And that began to happen, and, you know,
  • 00:02:15.220 --> 00:02:20.000
  • to be able for them to see somebody that looks like them
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:25.020
  • bringing the gospel, that's the reports I get
  • 00:02:25.030 --> 00:02:28.090
  • from a lot of guys.
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:29.240
  • Why is that so important for me to be there?
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:33.010
  • Because we can see something in you that gives us hope
  • 00:02:33.020 --> 00:02:36.200
  • that we can have the same thing.
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:39.170
  • But the bottom--the root of the whole thing is that
  • 00:02:39.180 --> 00:02:43.140
  • it was God's plan, and it was God's idea.
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:47.140
  • Vic: And how has the African continent received
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:49.180
  • the message of grace?
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:51.100
  • Creflo: You know, I didn't know what was gonna happen
  • 00:02:51.110 --> 00:02:54.040
  • when I first started it.
  • 00:02:54.050 --> 00:02:55.200
  • I thought, "Oh, my God, you know,
  • 00:02:55.210 --> 00:02:57.150
  • this is probably gonna be the roughest place
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:58.280
  • in the world to preach it," but I mean to tell you,
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:02.170
  • they grabbed a hold of that with tears,
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:06.290
  • with repentance, with joy, with excitement.
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:12.100
  • But it's been a great joy to me to see how they've received
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:18.060
  • this message of grace.
  • 00:03:18.070 --> 00:03:19.280
  • With hunger, with intensity, and with great excitement,
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:24.020
  • and that's the tagline.
  • 00:03:24.030 --> 00:03:26.180
  • They're understanding grace, they're being empowered
  • 00:03:26.190 --> 00:03:29.080
  • to change.
  • 00:03:29.090 --> 00:03:30.270
  • Taffi and I were in the nation of Nigeria and we did a question
  • 00:03:30.280 --> 00:03:35.150
  • and answer with relationships, and she taught
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:39.230
  • on Biblical equality, and that evening we had questions.
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:42.290
  • And I mean to tell you, it was the most
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:46.140
  • radical session I've ever been a part of.
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:50.020
  • We would answer questions, then people would break out
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:52.120
  • in cheers, it was really action and response to everything
  • 00:03:52.130 --> 00:03:55.070
  • that happened.
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:57.000
  • And to see that decision made, I choose Christ over my culture,
  • 00:03:57.010 --> 00:04:03.090
  • and it seems like sometimes it's a little harder for the men,
  • 00:04:03.100 --> 00:04:06.120
  • based on what country you're in, a little harder for the men
  • 00:04:06.130 --> 00:04:09.000
  • than the women, but we see something happening now.
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:13.090
  • Zimbabwe, Nigeria, South Africa, these places,
  • 00:04:13.100 --> 00:04:20.030
  • you see a really strong move, even in the political realm,
  • 00:04:20.040 --> 00:04:24.190
  • of making adjustments where women are now having more rights
  • 00:04:24.200 --> 00:04:29.030
  • to a whole lot more things than they used to,
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:32.080
  • and I believe it's because of that seed of Biblical equality.
  • 00:04:32.090 --> 00:04:36.180
  • Taffi Dollar: Praise God.
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:38.080
  • Vic: Sounds like Africa is gonna continue
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:39.250
  • to see you in 2020.
  • 00:04:39.260 --> 00:04:41.080
  • Creflo: Yes, sir, yep.
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:42.190
  • Taffi: Yes, me too.
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:44.020
  • Vic: Now, in the summer of 2019,
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:45.230
  • we had our Grace Life Conference where we came together as
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:48.190
  • a family for all the things that we do in terms of equipping
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:51.290
  • one another, and fellowshipping, and all of that.
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:54.170
  • Talk a bit about how the Grace Life Conference
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:56.020
  • went this past year.
  • 00:04:56.030 --> 00:04:57.240
  • Creflo: Whoo, it went to another level.
  • 00:04:57.250 --> 00:04:59.290
  • This is amazing grace
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:04.130
  • This is unfailing love
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:09.070
  • That you would take my place
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:14.060
  • That you would bear my cross
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:18.170
  • Creflo: Each year it goes to another level.
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:21.000
  • It's so revelatory that we are finally unveiling Jesus
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:27.240
  • and removing that filter of who we thought Jesus was.
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:32.160
  • As we unveil Jesus and people begin to see Jesus,
  • 00:05:32.170 --> 00:05:37.140
  • this unveiling of Jesus, they become more like him.
  • 00:05:37.150 --> 00:05:41.050
  • Religion kept us stuck and we never grew,
  • 00:05:41.060 --> 00:05:44.050
  • we never made any progress.
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:46.130
  • But the Grace Life Conference is simply an opportunity to immerse
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:49.270
  • in 25 sessions, to get you so into God's Word on grace,
  • 00:05:49.280 --> 00:05:55.260
  • because that's what it's gonna take to attack religion.
  • 00:05:55.270 --> 00:06:00.170
  • And we believe that's exactly what's going on.
  • 00:06:00.180 --> 00:06:03.280
  • It was a great, great, great time.
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:06.010
  • Vic: So, what was it like for you to actually hit
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:08.130
  • the 100th session of Grace Life Conferences?
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:11.120
  • Creflo: It was fast. It went fast.
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:14.280
  • I mean, 100 sessions of Grace Life Conference.
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:20.110
  • In other words, what it said to me was we have available
  • 00:06:20.120 --> 00:06:23.110
  • 100 sessions to help your world, your children,
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:28.000
  • and their children's children to be able to access information
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:31.090
  • that's now in the earth.
  • 00:06:31.100 --> 00:06:33.270
  • What it always means to me, every time we do a teaching,
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:37.080
  • every time we write a book, every time we do things like
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:40.040
  • this, we are making available for present and future use,
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:46.140
  • information that's in the earth that wasn't clearly in the earth
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:53.080
  • and with the impact that it has today,
  • 00:06:53.090 --> 00:06:56.170
  • 30 years ago, 20 years ago.
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:59.150
  • And now it's available, so that younger ministers,
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:03.100
  • or Christians won't have to go and reinvent the wheel,
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:07.150
  • that if they'll access this information that has come
  • 00:07:07.160 --> 00:07:11.060
  • through our ministry, instead of having to go
  • 00:07:11.070 --> 00:07:14.030
  • and rediscover it again.
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:15.210
  • I think the worst thing a person can do is ignore all
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:18.140
  • of the things that God has done through people's lives and try
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:22.060
  • to reinvent it all by yourself when he's already spoken.
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:25.110
  • Gregory Dickow: He said we gotta activate this stuff.
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:27.250
  • We gotta give--Jesus did it all, but we gotta give him
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:31.030
  • something to work with.
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:32.290
  • Vic: Were there any highlights that stood out for you
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:34.260
  • from the 2019 Grace Life Conference?
  • 00:07:34.270 --> 00:07:37.200
  • Creflo: Yeah, I think it was the night where we realized that
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:44.270
  • in Hebrews chapter 11, all of these heroes of faith
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:49.200
  • were not of the law.
  • 00:07:49.210 --> 00:07:52.000
  • And the revelation that showed up that was really radical,
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:56.110
  • that most Christians were of the law and not of faith.
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:08:02.020
  • And that just simply meant we spent most of our time trying
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:04.180
  • to earn something, trying to do something to get something.
  • 00:08:04.190 --> 00:08:08.130
  • And so, what stood out to me this past Grace Life Convention
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:11.240
  • was the fact that a religion of performance-based Christianity
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:16.230
  • has been created by church folks,
  • 00:08:16.240 --> 00:08:19.290
  • and it was the thing that was keeping people out of the
  • 00:08:20.000 --> 00:08:23.140
  • finished works of Jesus, keeping people from operating in the
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:26.180
  • finished works of Jesus, because we were so busy trying to work
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:29.130
  • to earn it versus believing to receive what Jesus has already
  • 00:08:29.140 --> 00:08:34.190
  • done, so that was life-changing.
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:36.210
  • Vic: So, what can we expect from this year's
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:38.140
  • Grace Life Conference?
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:40.010
  • I assume we're having one, yes?
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:41.110
  • Creflo: We are.
  • 00:08:41.120 --> 00:08:42.250
  • Taffi: We are, I mean, we're excited because
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:44.280
  • I've thought about the worship, too.
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:46.240
  • We had Karen Clark Sheard, and Brian Courtney Wilson,
  • 00:08:46.250 --> 00:08:51.110
  • right?
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:52.210
  • Creflo: Yeah, that was good.
  • 00:08:52.220 --> 00:08:54.080
  • Taffi: And so, the music is always just so impactful
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:57.190
  • and powerful.
  • 00:08:57.200 --> 00:08:59.250
  • I always look forward to that in all of our conferences,
  • 00:08:59.260 --> 00:09:03.080
  • so yeah, more of the same.
  • 00:09:03.090 --> 00:09:05.100
  • Creflo: Well, it's gonna be more of those great artists
  • 00:09:05.110 --> 00:09:08.220
  • that are gonna be there sharing in their gift,
  • 00:09:08.230 --> 00:09:12.270
  • and, you know, every year we're expected to go deeper.
  • 00:09:12.280 --> 00:09:16.170
  • Here's the thing with expecting, whatever level we were at
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:19.060
  • last year, it's gonna be a whole 'nother level this year.
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:21.290
  • It has gone--the 100 sessions have gone from revelation,
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:26.210
  • to revelation, to revelation, and now we're attempting
  • 00:09:26.220 --> 00:09:31.000
  • to see how deep, how high, and how wide this thing really is.
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:36.010
  • Vic: Well, you know, we wanna share some
  • 00:09:36.020 --> 00:09:38.010
  • of the other things that go on around here.
  • 00:09:38.020 --> 00:09:40.180
  • With a church this large, with the scope that we have,
  • 00:09:40.190 --> 00:09:43.290
  • a lot goes on that folks may or may not be familiar with.
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:47.150
  • One of those things are our back-to-school events,
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:49.110
  • which we have not just in College Park,
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:51.090
  • but at churches all over the country,
  • 00:09:51.100 --> 00:09:53.080
  • and indeed other parts of the world.
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:55.000
  • Talk a bit about why you're so committed
  • 00:09:55.010 --> 00:09:56.220
  • to those back-to-school events.
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:59.020
  • Taffi: I mean, it's expensive to have to get
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:03.190
  • all those supplies every year, particularly if you have
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:07.010
  • multiple children.
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:09.020
  • The school list is super long, and calculators,
  • 00:10:09.030 --> 00:10:12.280
  • and all kinds of things, so it's a blessing that we can be able
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:17.100
  • to help support families in our community to give their kids the
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:21.090
  • tools that they need, so they can just focus on learning.
  • 00:10:21.100 --> 00:10:24.240
  • male: Amen, it's good that y'all doing this
  • 00:10:26.030 --> 00:10:27.210
  • for the community.
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:29.010
  • Like, it's good to see this.
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:30.110
  • female: Where I'm from down there,
  • 00:10:30.120 --> 00:10:31.210
  • we don't have things like this, programs like this.
  • 00:10:31.220 --> 00:10:33.240
  • male: And I think that this is just something
  • 00:10:33.250 --> 00:10:35.230
  • that the kids really need.
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:37.090
  • male: It's very important for us to give back
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:40.290
  • to the community, man.
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:42.090
  • Each one teach one, and this is what I wanna do with the kids,
  • 00:10:42.100 --> 00:10:44.090
  • so I just wanted to give back to the community and to the church,
  • 00:10:44.100 --> 00:10:46.140
  • because you are all world changers.
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:47.240
  • Creflo: I remember a friend of ours, Ray McCauley,
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:49.230
  • years ago said, "If your church closes and the
  • 00:10:49.240 --> 00:10:52.140
  • people don't miss you, then you didn't have any impact anyway."
  • 00:10:52.150 --> 00:10:57.030
  • And, you know, Taffi taught a series of sermons on influence,
  • 00:10:57.040 --> 00:11:02.030
  • and I believe that every church should have influence
  • 00:11:02.040 --> 00:11:04.070
  • in their community.
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:06.040
  • You know, we can't be accused of ministering to people overseas
  • 00:11:06.050 --> 00:11:11.030
  • and ignoring people right in our backyard.
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:14.190
  • We do both of them.
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:16.100
  • We minister to people in our community,
  • 00:11:16.110 --> 00:11:18.100
  • and here's what this looks like.
  • 00:11:18.110 --> 00:11:21.020
  • They come in and they get food.
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:22.200
  • They come in and they get medical examinations,
  • 00:11:22.210 --> 00:11:25.270
  • eyes checked, screening.
  • 00:11:25.280 --> 00:11:29.070
  • They get the book bags, they get haircuts,
  • 00:11:29.080 --> 00:11:32.180
  • they get all kinds of help.
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:34.280
  • There's free legal counsel that we give people.
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:38.080
  • Taffi: Immunizations, all kinds of things.
  • 00:11:38.090 --> 00:11:39.220
  • Creflo: All kinds of stuff that we make available
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:41.210
  • in the churches here in Georgia, in the churches in New York,
  • 00:11:41.220 --> 00:11:46.040
  • in the churches, so when we have impact,
  • 00:11:46.050 --> 00:11:48.020
  • we have impact in 30-something different cities and a couple
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:51.230
  • of nations at the same time.
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:53.150
  • Taffi: We do, and continents.
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:55.040
  • Creflo: Yeah, well, we go clean up.
  • 00:11:55.050 --> 00:11:56.240
  • And somebody says, "Well, why do you all go
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:11:58.040
  • clean up the community?"
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:11:59.140
  • Because I think a cleaner community sometimes
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:01.010
  • translates to a safer community.
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:03.090
  • We, in New York, paint over the graffiti,
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:05.160
  • and yeah, they come back, but we continue to paint over it,
  • 00:12:05.170 --> 00:12:08.130
  • to do what needs to be done.
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:10.030
  • And I think what happens is, sometimes,
  • 00:12:10.040 --> 00:12:12.010
  • you know, we probably need to do a better job in telling
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:15.240
  • our story, so that people can realize that no,
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:20.040
  • we're not just having church, and we don't just have Bible
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:22.150
  • studies, doing work time, but we're actually trying
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:27.000
  • to reach out to make a mark in the lives of people
  • 00:12:27.010 --> 00:12:28.240
  • that can never be erased.
  • 00:12:28.250 --> 00:12:30.130
  • And yes, it costs money.
  • 00:12:30.140 --> 00:12:32.150
  • It costs money to do everything that we do,
  • 00:12:32.160 --> 00:12:36.150
  • and especially us not doing it just here in College Park,
  • 00:12:36.160 --> 00:12:39.170
  • but when we do something, it's worldwide.
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:42.130
  • Vic: Well, and I hear a passion from the both of you
  • 00:12:42.140 --> 00:12:45.170
  • regarding giving back to the community.
  • 00:12:45.180 --> 00:12:47.200
  • So, why is giving back in our various communities
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:49.200
  • that we serve so important to you?
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:51.170
  • Taffi: Well, I think it's a way that you can minister
  • 00:12:51.180 --> 00:12:52.270
  • to people, too.
  • 00:12:52.280 --> 00:12:54.070
  • I mean, what better way to feed, and to give school supplies,
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:58.290
  • and to give turkeys?
  • 00:12:59.000 --> 00:13:01.030
  • It just shows people that you care,
  • 00:13:01.040 --> 00:13:03.100
  • that you're concerned, that you want them to have the tools in
  • 00:13:03.110 --> 00:13:06.210
  • their family to be able to have a good experience in school,
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:11.050
  • and to have a Thanksgiving that they can enjoy.
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:13.270
  • male: And there are testimonies born out
  • 00:13:13.280 --> 00:13:15.090
  • of those events, are there not?
  • 00:13:15.100 --> 00:13:16.210
  • Taffi: Absolutely.
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:18.060
  • Creflo: And we don't give just on Thanksgiving, even.
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:19.270
  • We feed people every day. We clothe people every day.
  • 00:13:19.280 --> 00:13:23.200
  • This is something that goes on every day.
  • 00:13:23.210 --> 00:13:25.280
  • I mean, Taffi's pulling ladies off poles and putting them
  • 00:13:25.290 --> 00:13:29.080
  • in places to stay.
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:30.270
  • And we have to be equipped to do this all the time, every day.
  • 00:13:30.280 --> 00:13:35.000
  • Vic: Shifting gears real quick,
  • 00:13:35.010 --> 00:13:36.290
  • let's talk about more than ten years ago,
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:40.160
  • the Lord called you to minister to women who were
  • 00:13:40.170 --> 00:13:44.240
  • sort of trapped in the adult-entertainment
  • 00:13:44.250 --> 00:13:47.220
  • and various other adult industries.
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:50.120
  • And I know that was quite the challenge,
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:52.200
  • and it took a great deal of courage to pull a bunch of women
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:55.260
  • together and go out into the streets of Atlanta at night,
  • 00:13:55.270 --> 00:13:59.130
  • and pop into clubs, and deal with the bouncers
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:02.130
  • and all the negativity.
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:04.030
  • Talk a little bit about Prestige and how it has impacted
  • 00:14:04.040 --> 00:14:06.200
  • the community.
  • 00:14:06.210 --> 00:14:08.060
  • Taffi: Oh, we're seeing great testimonies.
  • 00:14:08.070 --> 00:14:11.130
  • We just, on last month, the last outreach that we had,
  • 00:14:11.140 --> 00:14:15.180
  • we had two ladies who were rescued,
  • 00:14:15.190 --> 00:14:18.030
  • who came into the ministry.
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:21.280
  • In fact, the outreach team was on the street,
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:24.240
  • and apparently, this individual was being kicked out of a car.
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:31.160
  • The car was moving, or something of that nature,
  • 00:14:31.170 --> 00:14:34.030
  • and just wanted to leave the situation,
  • 00:14:34.040 --> 00:14:36.270
  • so we have situations where our volunteers,
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:40.150
  • on the spot, women will want to up and leave,
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:44.100
  • and thank God for security, and additional vehicles where
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:48.060
  • we can make sure that our volunteers are safe,
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:50.130
  • but they can come back to the ministry and be assessed
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:53.090
  • and have the resources to house them for a night
  • 00:14:53.100 --> 00:14:56.220
  • or get 'em to a safehouse.
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:14:59.000
  • female: My interest in Prestige is because I saw a
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:01.060
  • ministry that was reaching young ladies who might not necessarily
  • 00:15:01.070 --> 00:15:05.110
  • have been thought about, and they're going
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.130
  • into the place where they are.
  • 00:15:07.140 --> 00:15:08.270
  • They're not waiting for 'em to come to the church.
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:11.130
  • Just from the orientation that we've gone through,
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:14.090
  • it kind of opened my eyes about some things I don't think I was
  • 00:15:14.100 --> 00:15:16.160
  • really expecting, but knowing that I need to be prepared.
  • 00:15:16.170 --> 00:15:21.020
  • That we may see some things that we're not necessarily used to
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:24.060
  • seeing, but we have to make sure that we remain non-judgmental.
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:29.070
  • female: So, tonight we're very,
  • 00:15:31.270 --> 00:15:33.060
  • very excited about the seeds that have been sown tonight.
  • 00:15:33.070 --> 00:15:36.160
  • Some have been watered, some have been planted,
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:38.160
  • but only God gives the increase.
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:40.040
  • We're very, very excited.
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:41.140
  • We had a great night tonight.
  • 00:15:41.150 --> 00:15:43.190
  • We had great volunteers, and we're just looking
  • 00:15:43.200 --> 00:15:46.180
  • to do it again next month.
  • 00:15:46.190 --> 00:15:48.100
  • So, we just thank you, bye-bye.
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:50.110
  • male: Go Prestige.
  • 00:15:50.240 --> 00:15:52.040
  • Taffi: Two of them got employed recently as a result
  • 00:15:55.050 --> 00:15:58.260
  • of just making the decision to turn their life around
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:16:02.020
  • and come off the pole, come off the street corner,
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:05.050
  • leave the hotel room.
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:06.170
  • And this lady, she was just in the middle of just getting ready
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:11.200
  • to go out and sell herself, but she said, "You know what?
  • 00:16:11.210 --> 00:16:13.260
  • I don't wanna do it anymore.
  • 00:16:13.270 --> 00:16:15.060
  • I'm leaving everything in the room, and I'm out."
  • 00:16:15.070 --> 00:16:18.260
  • Vic: Well, you know, you've seen the grace of God
  • 00:16:18.270 --> 00:16:20.220
  • at work in that world.
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:22.080
  • You know, the way that you were received when you first went out
  • 00:16:22.090 --> 00:16:25.290
  • there by the owners, and the bouncers,
  • 00:16:26.000 --> 00:16:28.020
  • and folks, versus the--talk about the evolution over time
  • 00:16:28.030 --> 00:16:31.050
  • of how you are welcomed into the environment now
  • 00:16:31.060 --> 00:16:33.200
  • when they really pushed back at first.
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:35.110
  • Taffi: They did in the beginning.
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:36.210
  • It really was more of the ladies who were pushing back.
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:40.020
  • A little skeptical about why we were in the clubs,
  • 00:16:40.030 --> 00:16:43.130
  • what are we doing there, you know.
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:45.070
  • The church ladies are here to try to, you know,
  • 00:16:45.080 --> 00:16:47.220
  • shame us into coming to church, and,
  • 00:16:47.230 --> 00:16:49.200
  • "Put your clothes on.
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:51.000
  • You know your mama wouldn't want you looking like that,"
  • 00:16:51.010 --> 00:16:53.000
  • kind of thing, but now, it's where they're seeing
  • 00:16:53.010 --> 00:16:57.130
  • that our motive is to love them, to show them the love of God,
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:17:02.020
  • and to help them realize that you can't do this all your life.
  • 00:17:02.030 --> 00:17:05.180
  • Your body's gonna change, the economy is changing,
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:09.020
  • you're getting older, and so you've gotta
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:10.240
  • start thinking about your future.
  • 00:17:10.250 --> 00:17:13.200
  • And so, that's what Prestige is there for,
  • 00:17:13.210 --> 00:17:15.230
  • to help them to identify with the Christ that's on the inside
  • 00:17:15.240 --> 00:17:20.030
  • of them and to elevate their thinking and where they are.
  • 00:17:20.040 --> 00:17:23.210
  • Vic: And as the ministry has grown and evolved,
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:27.030
  • it's been recognized and come to the front in government
  • 00:17:27.040 --> 00:17:31.160
  • and other environments where you've bene given awards
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:34.180
  • and things for that.
  • 00:17:34.190 --> 00:17:35.280
  • What's it like to have that thing that you birthed
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:38.250
  • way back when rise to a level of visibility?
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:42.120
  • Taffi: Oh, it's so fulfilling.
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:43.260
  • I mean, I just get excited when we get the calls
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:46.040
  • where the ladies just show up at the church office and we get
  • 00:17:46.050 --> 00:17:49.250
  • the call from Pastor Ken's office, and they say,
  • 00:17:49.260 --> 00:17:52.020
  • "Hey, we got somebody down here who says they,
  • 00:17:52.030 --> 00:17:54.250
  • you know, had a Prestige card and want help."
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:57.290
  • So, and along with that, the accolades that come along
  • 00:17:58.000 --> 00:18:01.050
  • to validate that what you're doing is meaningful
  • 00:18:01.060 --> 00:18:04.230
  • and helping people is certainly a cherry on the top.
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:07.230
  • Vic: Well, go ahead and share real quick,
  • 00:18:07.240 --> 00:18:09.030
  • for those that don't know, when Prestige does ministry,
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:12.150
  • and then what you see coming in the future.
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:14.290
  • Taffi: We minister one Friday out of every month,
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:17.290
  • and we've been doing that for 12 years now.
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:20.020
  • And it's primarily in the streets of Atlanta.
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:23.000
  • We go to areas that are predominately prostitute-driven,
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:26.280
  • prostituted women, and areas where
  • 00:18:26.290 --> 00:18:28.270
  • there's suspected human trafficking going on.
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:31.170
  • So, we partner with law enforcement.
  • 00:18:31.180 --> 00:18:33.290
  • We are involved with Governor Kemp.
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:36.250
  • You've introduced me to Marti.
  • 00:18:36.260 --> 00:18:38.280
  • She has an initiative called Grace Commission,
  • 00:18:38.290 --> 00:18:41.020
  • so we're doing a roundtable with her on human trafficking.
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:43.270
  • Mayor Keisha Bottoms, things that are going on
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:46.070
  • in the mayor's office, so Prestige is involved
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:48.170
  • on not just the foot-traffic level,
  • 00:18:48.180 --> 00:18:51.150
  • but we're on the legislative level,
  • 00:18:51.160 --> 00:18:53.170
  • educational level to create awareness.
  • 00:18:53.180 --> 00:18:55.240
  • Vic: And if people are looking for a place
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:57.060
  • they can have impact, what a wonderful ministry to volunteer.
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:19:00.170
  • Taffi: Yes, they can.
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:01.270
  • They can volunteer by sowing their seeds and helping us
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:04.000
  • to get the women off the poles, and get 'em
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:06.210
  • into establishing a reputable, dignified lifestyle.
  • 00:19:06.220 --> 00:19:13.280
  • Vic: Just how has this been a year of the supernatural
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:15.280
  • for the two of you?
  • 00:19:15.290 --> 00:19:18.010
  • Taffi: Oh, my gosh, it's been, what would you say?
  • 00:19:18.020 --> 00:19:23.030
  • Creflo: I mean--
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:24.130
  • Taffi: It's been a lot.
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:25.280
  • Creflo: There's no part of this past year
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:27.150
  • that we can really take credit for.
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:29.170
  • I don't know how we do it.
  • 00:19:29.180 --> 00:19:31.010
  • I really don't, physically, financially, emotionally.
  • 00:19:31.020 --> 00:19:40.050
  • It was a lot of brokenness, and hurts, and pains,
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:46.160
  • and ignorance, and the whole deal.
  • 00:19:46.170 --> 00:19:50.110
  • And, you know, it just felt like we were going, and going,
  • 00:19:50.120 --> 00:19:54.070
  • and going, and going, and going, and going.
  • 00:19:54.080 --> 00:19:57.040
  • You know, we enjoyed ourselves.
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:59.040
  • You know, every now and then, we paused, you know,
  • 00:19:59.050 --> 00:20:01.130
  • and ate a gyro or something like that.
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:03.030
  • We literally ate a gyro.
  • 00:20:03.040 --> 00:20:06.040
  • Taffi: So, it's been a lot of that, too.
  • 00:20:07.070 --> 00:20:10.130
  • Where it's been the natural things,
  • 00:20:10.140 --> 00:20:12.070
  • but it's also been God showing up.
  • 00:20:12.080 --> 00:20:14.200
  • Creflo: Very rewarding, very rewarding.
  • 00:20:14.210 --> 00:20:17.030
  • Taffi: In our family, in our marriage,
  • 00:20:17.040 --> 00:20:18.290
  • in relationships, and in our church, churches.
  • 00:20:19.000 --> 00:20:23.130
  • Creflo: So, supernatural because I'm saying you live
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:27.260
  • in a fool's paradise if you think it was
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:29.170
  • by your own efforts that you did it.
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:33.040
  • And at the end of the year, we have to pause and say,
  • 00:20:33.050 --> 00:20:38.160
  • "How great thou art."
  • 00:20:38.170 --> 00:20:41.090
  • Vic: Then sings my soul.
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.190
  • Creflo: Yes, sir, yes, sir.
  • 00:20:42.200 --> 00:20:44.040
  • Them Baptists still got the hymns that can say it
  • 00:20:44.050 --> 00:20:46.090
  • all in one line, huh?
  • 00:20:46.100 --> 00:20:48.040
  • Vic: And, you know, every time you do that on a Sunday,
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:50.090
  • you know, it's like goose-bump city.
  • 00:20:50.100 --> 00:20:52.180
  • That simple, old, basic song, there's just something about it
  • 00:20:52.190 --> 00:20:56.170
  • that moves you to a whole other place.
  • 00:20:56.180 --> 00:20:58.240
  • So, what are some things you're looking forward to
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:00.160
  • moving into the year 2020?
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:04.030
  • Creflo: I'm looking forward to stepping away from
  • 00:21:04.040 --> 00:21:08.120
  • the position of CEO, and finally stepping into a full-time call
  • 00:21:08.130 --> 00:21:15.250
  • as pastoring our church and our pastors and other churches.
  • 00:21:15.260 --> 00:21:22.090
  • That's what I'm looking forward to.
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:24.170
  • I'm looking forward to seeing new leaders blossom,
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:30.070
  • and I'm looking forward to our ministry moving
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:34.230
  • from the tape age to the digital age, and things changing.
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:40.180
  • You know, if it was left up to me, if it ain't broke,
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:43.220
  • don't fix it, but I realize things
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:46.070
  • don't have to break in order to be fixed.
  • 00:21:46.080 --> 00:21:48.250
  • Sometimes it's just time for renovation around here,
  • 00:21:48.260 --> 00:21:52.180
  • you know.
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:53.290
  • The little globe that's been in the dome for I don't know
  • 00:21:54.000 --> 00:21:55.280
  • how long here, it's time for it to go.
  • 00:21:55.290 --> 00:21:57.100
  • They get it, that's a world, it's time to put
  • 00:21:57.110 --> 00:21:59.280
  • something else up there.
  • 00:21:59.290 --> 00:22:01.170
  • So, I'm looking forward to being able to come up with new
  • 00:22:01.180 --> 00:22:03.280
  • and innovative ways of getting the gospel into the lives
  • 00:22:03.290 --> 00:22:08.160
  • of people thorough technology, social media.
  • 00:22:08.170 --> 00:22:11.180
  • I'll do what they tell me to do.
  • 00:22:11.190 --> 00:22:13.180
  • I don't understand a whole lot about the technology
  • 00:22:13.190 --> 00:22:15.260
  • that exists, but I do know that as a church and as a ministry
  • 00:22:15.270 --> 00:22:20.110
  • who's involved in trying to get the gospel
  • 00:22:20.120 --> 00:22:22.220
  • into the lives of people, I've got to learn
  • 00:22:22.230 --> 00:22:26.070
  • and to continue to learn to submit to the things
  • 00:22:26.080 --> 00:22:29.160
  • that are available today.
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:31.020
  • So, I'm really looking forward to doing what I feel like
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:34.280
  • I am really graced to do, and that is to pastor people,
  • 00:22:34.290 --> 00:22:39.200
  • and I'm looking forward to that.
  • 00:22:39.210 --> 00:22:41.270
  • I'm looking forward to moving out of my office
  • 00:22:41.280 --> 00:22:44.050
  • that I've been in for a long time.
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:48.130
  • My wife and several others don't think it's gonna really happen,
  • 00:22:48.140 --> 00:22:51.260
  • but I've already booked the truck and I am moving out,
  • 00:22:51.270 --> 00:22:55.070
  • and I'll leave a bye-bye card on the wall.
  • 00:22:55.080 --> 00:22:57.170
  • But yeah, I'm looking forward to this.
  • 00:22:57.180 --> 00:22:59.030
  • This is gonna be probably, in my opinion,
  • 00:22:59.040 --> 00:23:01.220
  • I think it's gonna be 2020, the year of clarity.
  • 00:23:01.230 --> 00:23:05.170
  • And not only clarity in our lives,
  • 00:23:05.180 --> 00:23:07.170
  • but we believe that people are going to be able to see
  • 00:23:07.180 --> 00:23:11.020
  • and understand with 20/20 vision what they need to be doing
  • 00:23:11.030 --> 00:23:14.260
  • for the kingdom.
  • 00:23:14.270 --> 00:23:16.110
  • Vic: And Taffi, when he was speaking,
  • 00:23:16.120 --> 00:23:18.160
  • I thought about the influence that you've had on him, and us,
  • 00:23:18.170 --> 00:23:21.200
  • and our church from a digital aspect, social media.
  • 00:23:21.210 --> 00:23:24.270
  • You drove a lot of the change that we've seen in terms
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:28.130
  • of you guys now being regulars on Instagram and things
  • 00:23:28.140 --> 00:23:32.050
  • that probably wouldn't have been his first choice.
  • 00:23:32.060 --> 00:23:35.050
  • What are you looking forward to moving ahead?
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:37.000
  • Taffi: Yes, I am looking forward to connecting
  • 00:23:37.010 --> 00:23:38.210
  • more with people.
  • 00:23:38.220 --> 00:23:40.010
  • I think that's why we are here and doing
  • 00:23:40.020 --> 00:23:42.050
  • what we're doing, going on 34 years.
  • 00:23:42.060 --> 00:23:46.110
  • It's because we have such great relationships that we can
  • 00:23:46.120 --> 00:23:51.020
  • discover and have with sharing with people what we know,
  • 00:23:51.030 --> 00:23:57.180
  • and the fact, like Creflo was saying,
  • 00:23:57.190 --> 00:24:00.100
  • that this is a year of clarity, and I'm just believing
  • 00:24:00.110 --> 00:24:03.090
  • that we'll have more stories, more testimonies,
  • 00:24:03.100 --> 00:24:05.290
  • that people will begin to see God in their families,
  • 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:09.070
  • seeing God's plan for their individual lives
  • 00:24:09.080 --> 00:24:12.110
  • in a way that they've never seen him before.
  • 00:24:12.120 --> 00:24:16.090
  • For us, as pastors, to really know specifically things that
  • 00:24:16.100 --> 00:24:21.080
