Los Angeles, CA- DOOR is pleased to announce that Tyrone Nance has been hired as the DOOR Los Angeles City Director.
Tyrone Nance is a Los Angeles native, born and raised in South Central. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He then went on to earn a Master’s degree in Transformational Urban Leadership Studies from Azusa Pacific University, in Azusa, California.
Being exposed to outreach and missions at an early age led to a love and passion for serving marginalized communities, which he continually strives to develop and cultivate. Tyrone has been actively involved in the Skid Row community for over three years with various missions such as LA Mission, Fred Jordan Mission, and, most recently, as the Volunteer Service Coordinator with Union Rescue Mission where he and his team organized and served over 40,000 volunteers yearly.
Tyrone has a wealth of ministry and leadership experience that began in his early roots at West Angeles Church of God in Christ (COGIC) under the Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake. Tyrone’s passion to serve expanded to the International COGIC Church. His highlight was assisting in the community outreach project “Christmas in November,” which provided clothing, food, haircut and other resources for the impoverished area of Ferguson, Missouri during the Michael Brown shooting protests.
Tyrone’s yearning to grow and to be part of a church that reflects our diverse society led him to Oasis Church in the Korean Town neighborhood of LA. As a part of the Oasis Outreach Ministry for more than two years, Tyrone has served locally and internationally, including a trip to Pignon, Haiti where the mission team participated in the Water Well project. Outreach continues to fuel his passion and commitment to impact his community and abroad.
Tyrone is excited to move deeper into the community, forging new partnerships, as well as maintaining those existing partnerships.
DOOR looks forward to having Tyrone and his passion for connecting faith, service, and justice join the staff team on May 14, 2018.
