Pastor & Deacon Peeples
Pastor Tahnaya Dianne McCurdy-Peeples
Tahnaya Dianne McCurdy-Peeples, eldest child of the late Elder George and Deaconess Dianne McCurdy was born on August 13, 1979, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior as a young child. Her parents taught her to always put God first in everything being done in her life. As a child Pastor Peeples always had a spirit of determination, not knowing or understanding the plan the God had for her life. Growing up in the church, Pastor Peeples served faithfully in the Open Door Mission True Light church under the pastorate of the late Elder James L. Ballard, Sr. and Bishop Maureen L. David. Driven by a passion to serve God’s people, she served in several ministries such as Youth Leader, Drama and Mime Ministry, the Choir and as Sunday School Secretary.
In 2004, she joined her father, the late Elder George McCurdy, Jr. as she obeyed the voice of the Lord to pioneer the Greater Love Temple of Faith Church. Although it was unknown to Pastor Peeples, the call of the Lord was upon her life. Thus, in April of 2007, she answered the call to the gospel ministry. Through this ministry Pastor Peeples was to grow and mature spiritually, while encouraging other youth within the body of Christ. The Lord used her mightily during this time serving as the Drama and Arts Ministry Leader, Praise and Worship Leader, Choir Directress, Sunday School Teacher, Vacation Bible School Teacher and also in the Women’s Ministry. At the time Pastor Peeples did not know the plan God had destined for her life. It was during this time that she was being molded to later serve and further lead the body of believers.
She is happily married to Deacon LaRon Peeples and they are the proud parents of three children, LaRon Jr., Jorgia and Austin.
