In 2010, God began to transform the ministry and its leader to an apostolic mantle.  This entailed moving from just ministering to the souls at the present location, but to establishing the Kingdom of God in other parts of the Mid-South.  From an event held in Tunica, Mississippi called “The Outpouring” was born TBOC (The Body of Christ) Ministries. Apostle Pratcher is the covering to many sons and daughters that are walking in their apostolic calling and impacting the world for Christ.


Ministering to the family, Apostle Pratcher has hosted many difference retreats to address the issues of the family unit.  As a family man, He is married to Iliana Pratcher and they are the blessed parents of three sons; Simeon, Seriah, Samuel.
