THE TRANSFORMATION CHURCH STORY

Transformation Church was founded as Middletown Assembly of God in 1944. In 1955, the church moved from a storefront in Middletown to a church building on Cottage Street and was renamed Trinity Assembly of God. In 1982, a new church was built and the Church moved from Cottage Street to our present location on Blumel Road. In 1992, the church expanded and built our present auditorium which is phase two of a three-phase project. From 1992 to 2009, the church went through some ups and downs. A once thriving congregation began to decline. In 2009, Pastor Joe and Ruth became the Senior Pastors of Transformation and have been leading the turnaround ever since. The church grew from 90 people attending to 800 attendees and three Sunday services with 150 kids attending on Sundays. In 2011 Trinity Assembly of God was renamed Transformation Church. In 2020, TC was crippled by COVID and was pushed back by 10 years. However, over the past three years, they have slowly bounced back and have grown to over 500 attendees, with 400 people attending in person on Sundays and 100 online. They will hopefully surpass 2020 numbers in 2024. Hiring a Children’s Pastor is an integral part of that comeback. Our dream is to build the third phase of our facility, which will include a 600-seat auditorium. Transformation Church is a multicultural, multi ethnic, and multi generational church and we are excited to see where God takes us next!
