Meet Aquila Tyson of Champions Global in North (Interview with Voyage Houston)
Today we’d like to introduce you to Aquila Tyson.
Aquila, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today? After serving faithfully in ministry for over 17 years, God spoke to my husband and I in November 2016, that we would lead our own ministry. We held a small introductory meeting in our home to announce it. There were initially three families who believed God called them to be part of the vision. Although the numbers were small, we knew we heard from God about the assignment. Understanding the character of God, we qualified, because He does his best work with few.
Today, we lead an amazing team of leaders, who are committed to the vision. They are agents of change, impacting and influencing the lives of others in our community. Our purpose is to teach the Kingdom of God, build and disciple others through the word.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way? No, it hasn’t been a smooth road. After 90 days we had families to leave the ministry, we were involved in a contract dispute with the hotel due to the noise level, we didn’t have full-time musicians, a worship leader or adequate volunteers, just to highlight a few of the challenges.
Through it all, God remained faithful. I have a saying, “if what you presently see doesn’t look like what you saw in the vision, then what you see is only temporary.”
