The highly anticipated January – Februray 2020 Elevation Issue is finally here! The Elevation Issue is all about “Positive Vibes.” This issue is where intention is placed on promoting the good deeds of folks. Through the platform of TUV Magazine we want to change the dynamics of what readers expect when they turn the pages of our publication. So often news is delivered in a controlled and constraint fashion where negativity is sold and promoted as normal behavior. It is our intentions to use our platform as a source of inspiration to heal our community by promoting positivity as the norm.

On the cover: Overseer Pastor Dr. Darnell Gooch, Jr., provides an exclusive interview to discuss his role as pastor of The Cathedral Praise Church of Memphis, Inc. Pastor Gooch’s congregation is largely attended by members who identify under the LGBTQ umbrella. His church has also become a religious refugee for “all people” looking for a spirit filled worship experience. “The Cathedral” is determined to change to landscape of what Jesus would do when ministering to “the least of thee.”
