Visionaries Pursuing Excellence (VPE) is a conglomeration of Pastors that come together, under the direction and leadership of Bishop Rufus K. Turner & Bishop Tylos Jackson, Jr., to receive guidance in every area of ministry. This organization has a fresh and aggressive approach to meeting the directives of God.

Our Bishops have a vision for Pastors with a mind to accomplish major things for God. Their philosophy for God’s kingdom is that directives and mandates given by God should be completed on time, every time, in the spirit of excellence.

In a very short timeframe, through the direction and leading of the Sprit of God, our Bishops have met phenomenal milestones in obtaining the promises of God.

Bishop Turner has an Apostolic call on his life and has been successful in planting ministries, successfully obtaining 501c3s, projecting expenses, budgeting, area analysis, and team creation. He has partnered with other Pastors to problem-solve, build membership and increase finances. Bishop has great experience and wisdom in providing counseling services and emergency intercession for many church leaders throughout the nation.

Bishop Jackson has a theological call on his life to teach and preach God's word in and out of season. He lives to lead in reaching out to transform and revitalize the community to make the Lord known. He pours what God has given into other leaders in the area of hermeneutics and exegetical interpretation of Scripture.

Visionaries Pursuing Excellence was established to share key learning with other like-minded pastors, who are ready to move forward in their God- given visions. Through the establishment of Visionaries Pursing Excellence, pastors come together under the auspice of working God’s vision through “Iron Sharpens Iron” (ISI) sessions. These weekly or monthly meetings create an environment for pastors to receive and share the knowledge required to build and lead successful churches of excellence. These powerful thought and action provoking sessions will not only help you to become a better pastor, they will provide you with an opportunity to share and receive up-to-date techniques on how to handle some of the most challenging issues that face today’s pastors.

VPE is for Pastors who are willing to set goals, follow-through with actionable items, and be held accountable to bring their personal God-given visions to fruition. Pastors are able to receive and share the knowledge required to build and lead a successful church of excellence.

Visionaries Pursuing Excellence could be right for you if:

  • You are a Pastor searching for a consortium of like-minded Pastors and on a mission to complete, with excellence, the vision God has given.

  • You are planting a new ministry and could benefit from the wisdom and knowledge of Bishop Rufus and that of other growing ministries throughout the nation.

  • You are in need of a covering that will be available to provide coaching and assistance with organizational structure, growth strategies, and church affairs.

• You have a vision to bring glory to God in the community in which you were planted to serve the community and to help and empower in His people, leading them to greatness.
