MEET OUR PASTOR
Pastors Lawrence & Nichelle Peoples
Lawrence David Peoples is a native Tulsan, born in 1969 and destined to make a positive impact; however, life's choices led to gang involvement, addiction, and eventually prison. In 1995, Lawrence was incarcerated serving two prison sentences in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. Finally, from his 6 X 9 cell, he gave his life to the Lord and the transformation began taking place. Lawrence Peoples was "Going Hard For Christ".
After Lawrence was released from prison in 1998, he was able to receive gainful employment through his obedience and then granted a FULL PARDON by former Governor Frank Keating. He felt a strong desire to help others riddled with the same struggles. Lawrence became highly involved in jail ministry at David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center and Avalon Correctional Center.
Today, Lawrence Peoples is the senior pastor of Going Hard for Christ Church. Collectively, Lawrence and his wife Nichelle are building a legacy, one soul at a time through discipleship. They have two children and five grandchildren.
A Word from our Pastors
“We would love to extend an invitation to be a part of learning the Word of God with us. Come prepared to experience our warm atmosphere, the freedom to worship through song and dance, and practical teachings of the Word of God for an abundant life in Christ."
"We are excited about God’s plan for your life and look forward to you being our guest."

"Personally from my experience Pastor Peoples and his wife shows complete dedication to God's congregation and never leaves a sermon incomplete you definitely leave feeling as full as if you have ate a full course meal lol peace. Also it doesn't hurt that the members are welcoming as well."
"I recommend Going Hard For Christ Church, because there is an anointing there that allows you to release any hang-ups’. Pastor Lawrence People is very real and transparent. His Teaching will not make you feel judged, but it will make you do a self evaluation of your personal life from making not so good choices to making healthy choices that will allow you to wanna go to the next level in Christ."
