Minister Ederic L. Kerney is a native of Tate County of Mississippi. He is married to the beautiful Mrs. Annette Kerney, and they have 5 lovely children. He also has the support of his dedicated mother, Katherine Kerney.
Being directed by God, in February of 2007, a bible study was started at his home where it was outgrown quickly. This spark, as directed by God, developed into its first church service just two years after. Later in June 2009, the ministry was blessed with a 19,000 sq. ft. facility in Batesville, Mississippi where the Transformation Christian Center’s (TCC) meets and its motto is based on Romans 12:2…”be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…..” Pastor Kerney has developed ministries such as a tutoring service, a purity ministry, and a singles and marriage ministry. Praise is truly what pastor does and believes. For he confesses often to the TCC that we are not a Psalms 74 church for truly the Lord dwells in this place, and therefore because of the atmosphere that has been sustained, the sinner cannot sit comfortably in the congregation of the righteous as stated in Psalms chapter 1 verse 5. Pastor and the TCC is very unorthodoxed and the church is a five-fold ministry which believes in helping people develop their gifts that God has entrusted in them.
Minister Kerney is also the CEO/Station Manager on the Anointed 102.1 FM KBUD in Sardis, MS. Started in 2003, KBUD is a 6000 watts station heard in 25 surrounding counties. In 2008, he received the 2008 National Announcer of the Year Award from the Mississippi Gospel Music Awards.
Being anointed and well-rounded, Pastor Kerney does much to stay in shape spiritually and physically. He is the Dean of Education for a satellite program of the Beacon Institute of Theological University. Promoting the gospel thru concerts and informative conferences for all gender and ages is a great spare time activity. Through these conferences, strategies for a positive life style and mentoring programs are given to the youth of the area. Pastor also officiates sports activities for the Mississippi High School Activity Association. Minister Ederic Kerney attended Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA and graduated from Northwest Community College in Senatobia, MS.
He spreads the word of God on a consistent basis, not just in the boundary of the church building, but on the outside to bring people into Christ with his blessing from God to be a blessing to others.
