CITY DIVE, INC.
"Reaching Out To Families & Communities...So God Can Dive In"
Founder of City Dive, Inc.
Terrell Murphy serves as visionary of the Life Center International in Charlotte, NC where he brings more than 30 years of corporate, community and ministry experience. During this time, Terrell served faithfully as an elder at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia, and Lead Pastor of New Birth-Charlotte. Through God’s elevation to a greater call in His Kingdom, he established Life Center International, a ministry focused on the renewal and reformation of the Body of Christ.
With a ministry seated in suburban Charlotte, Terrell also exemplifies his great love and compassion for the inner city of Charlotte through the establishment of City Dive, Inc., a 501c (3) organization whose mission is to Engage, Equip and Employ families to radically transform and sustain their lives and communities. Through his extended commitment to the West Charlotte community, he planted his first church City Dive Outreach Center, which was birthed due to his desire to serve the residents of the inner city in a more consistent and impactful way. Terrell is called to be a reformer in the body of Christ with a passion to see the Kingdom Order of God restored back to its original purpose in the earth. This, he believes, shall come to pass through the execution of New Testament Apostolic Ministry and Houses.
“To see the church aligned to the purposes and focuses of our Lord and His Christ is what will cause the kingdoms of this world to encounter and be influenced by our Lord”.
Terrell is a native of Granite Falls, NC and graduate of Appalachian State University. He is also the devoted husband of 29 years to his wife Susan, and they are the proud parents of two sons, Samuel and Johnathan.
