Champion stepping down as Bealeton church pastor

T. Tyronne Champion will leave the pastor’s role at True Deliverance Church of God near Bealeton early next year to focus on the establishment of Ethnos College.
T. Tyronne Champion has announced he will step down Feb. 1 after almost 25 years as bishop and senior pastor of True Deliverance Church of God near Bealeton.

“I am grateful for my time as pastor, but I have been called to another effort that will require much of my time and energy,” Dr. Champion said. “My pastoral season has ended but a new season is beginning.”

He plans to focus on establishment of Ethnos College in Fauquier — a higher education institution that will offer biblical degrees and courses in nonprofit management.

“My commitment is to continue to serve our community by providing high quality, Biblically-based education to develop spiritual, business and community leaders that can impact our community and beyond with their good works,” Dr. Champion said.

He announced the plan to parishioners in September.

“This was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make,” he noted., “I love the True Deliverance congregation, my heart will always be here. I will continue my role as executive director for Community Touch as we continue to serve Fauquier with our transitional housing services, food support, clothing, and household goods.”

True Deliverance Church will conduct a pastoral search over the next few months and plan to install their new spiritual leader when one is selected.
