THE CHAMPION CENTER
SERVING A COMMUNITY OF CHAMPIONS
Our Lead Pastor
(In his own words)
My name is Tobaise and I am a passionate lover of all things God, who loves people, and cares about my community. I am the superhappy husband of Antionette and the ecstatic dad to three beautiful girls, Essence, Kira, and Tai. Uh oh! I am also the crazy excited grandfather of Mr. Karter-sauce. I have been an educator for over 21 years serving as a teacher, resource specialist, and administrator. Antionette is a LMFT and serves the community through her own practice called Destination.Hope.
I am a worshiper at heart and know how the power of God can change your life. I am originally from Los Angeles county and was impacted by the love of my grandparents who raised me. My mentor Bishop Henry L. Johnson, founder of Bethesda, asked me to come to Fresno to be the senior pastor of Bethesda. After much prayer, I moved to this beautiful San Joaquin Valley and have enjoyed seeing the power of God change people's lives. I planted two works in 2014 called Bethesda Southeast and Bethesda River Park. The Lord truly impressed on my heart that there was a need for a spirit-filled church in Northwest Fresno that had a culture of love and worship. A space that invited the presence of God for salvation, healing and empowerment. This led me to start a small life group of just 6 people. After our first 10 week teaching series on "the Christ Life" it became clear that it was time to launch out into the deep. Welcome to my launch. Welcome to The Champion Center
The Champions Center's dream is to see all people, no matter where they are from experience a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe God has a plan for everyone and we just need to get out of the way and allow him to show people their destiny. Thus, our dream is grounded in the hope that everyone falls in love with Jesus.
Further, our dream is to be a thriving multi-ethnic, multi-geographic Jesus resource center committed to Making, Developing and Deploying Champions for Jesus Christ to meet the holistic needs of people in their societal context.
Bethesda will educate its local communities and world partners through multiple early learning centers, a K-12 private school, a secondary charter school, and an accredited University.
Bethesda will meet the social needs of at-risk and impoverished communities through transitional homes, empowerment centers, work-force vocational training centers, and in-kind donation centers.
The vision is clear...You will become a Champion in every aspect of your life; living out the promises and provisions given by Jesus Christ. Besides, who doesn't want to be a champion? So we believe by emphasizing 4 key areas, God's vision for us will be realized.
1. Worship: We become champions as we worship Jesus Christ in all aspects of our life
2. Growing: We become champions as we study together in life groups and learn what God says about Himself and our destiny.
3. Serving: We become champions as we serve on ministry teams to bless our community.
4. Go: We become champions as we seek undiscovered and fallen champions and restore them to championship status.
Hopefully, you can envision yourself being a part of this move to make Champions for Jesus Christ.
