|Pastor Tyrone L. Morrison II was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He accepted Jesus Christ into his life and was baptized at Greater Faith Baptist Church at the age of 8 by the late Pastor Joseph Tillman, Sr. He has served the Christian community most of his life. |
Pastor Morrison received his formal education from the Los Angeles School Districts. He continued his secondary education at U.C. Berkeley, Piedmont Theological Seminary and the Good News Theological Seminary.
In 1993, Pastor Morrison was ordained as a Deacon at the Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Oakland California, under the leadership of Pastor Dennis Meredith and served in that capacity for 10 years, but God had a greater calling on his life. In April 2003, Pastor Morrison accepted his calling to preach the gospel, and was licensed at Victory Baptist Church in Oakland California, under the leadership of Pastor Jewel Peters. In 2005, he was also ordained at the Stars of Joy Missionary Baptist Church by Pastor Elijah Baker, and served faithfully as an Associate Minister.
In 2011, Pastor Morrison moved to Tracy California and united with the Good News Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor B. Carl Edwards, where he has served faithfully as an associate pastor and minister.
On March 3, 2018, after much prayer and consideration, Rev. Morrison accepted the call to be the Senior Pastor of the Good News Missionary Baptist Church and was installed as the new Pastor in March 2018.
Pastor Morrison has been employed by the University of California for more than 30 years. He is blessed to be married to Doretha Morrison for 26 years and to father three sons Jerome, Tyrone III and Dorian.
"But my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus; the work of telling others the Good News about God's wonderful kindness and love”
Acts 20:24 (NLT)
