Dr. Todd J. Pulliam is an Apostle, Pastor, Prophet, Author, Teacher, Trailblazer, Pioneer, Husband, Father, Mentor and Community Leader.
Dr. Pulliam is a sought after voice in the Body of Christ. He has been in ministry for over 26 years, 21 of those years as a full-time pastor. A trailblazer in the field of race relations, in 1996 Dr. Pulliam pioneered a mighty work (Grace Covenant Worship Center), in Huron County, MI where he and his family were the only minorities in the county. Dr. Pulliam was blessed with a unique ministry and is called to bring unity to the Body of Christ, showcasing diversity among the believers. This uniqueness is shown in greatness through the diversity of the congregation he oversees as pastor and pioneer of his current ministry, 1 ACCORD Church International, in Columbia, SC. – founded in 1998. God has blessed him with the ability to see beyond a person’s physical appearance and appreciate their heart.
As a spirit-filled man of God, Dr. Pulliam is gifted by the Holy Spirit to flow prophetically. Being used of God, he has spoken to the Body of Christ to warn of major events from 9/11, political elections, to major storms.
Dr. Pulliam has written over nine publications, geared towards strengthening the local church, and building and equipping the Believer. He has taught over 2,000 messages to the Body of Christ, developing the whole man (mind, body and soul). Teaching Believers how to use the Word to have complete victory in their lives is a gift that he freely imparts. He has founded and established: Total Life Institute, Customer Care Advocacy Group, Higher Heights Learning and Leadership Academy and TrueVine Media and Publications. Along with these works, he is in the process of starting the development of multiple non-profit 501c3 organizations or hubs that will work together to minister to communities and local churches.
Dr. Pulliam has raised many sons and daughters in the faith who are responsible for impacting ministries globally, from senior pastors to administrators. He is adamant about developing the leadership potential in all who understand they have been called to be more than conquerors. He has a heart for those in need. His extensive community work through the years includes…Special Olympics, Neighborhood Cleanups, Suicide Prevention Ministry, Health Fairs, Feeding the Homeless, etc.
Dr. Pulliam has been married to his lovely wife Michell (who works alongside him in ministry) for over 28 years. Together they have raised three beautiful children (Kerington, Joel and Blake), whom they have raised in the work of the Lord and who now work full-time in ministry with their parents. They also have a son-in-law (Allyn), who also works with them in ministry full-time as well.
Dr. Pulliam attended Central Michigan University and William Tyndale College, and is a graduate of Asher School of Business and SMTI (Supernatural Ministries Training Institute). He has also received his Masters and Doctorate degrees in Theology from North Carolina School of Theology.
Michell Pulliam is the author of “Real Talk”, a marriage and relationship book (available on Amazon.com) and the creator of “The Cultured Life” Signature Program for women. She is also a lifestyle consultant, personal growth coach, and ordained minister.
Michell has been married to her husband, Dr. Todd J. Pulliam, for over 28 years. Over 20 of those years have been spent working alongside him in full-time ministry. They have pioneered two non-denominational diverse ministries in Michigan and South Carolina. Their three adult children (Kerington, Joel, and Blake) and son-in-law (Allyn), all work with them in ministry full-time at their church 1 ACCORD Church International.
Mentoring women and writing are her passion, and she counsels in the areas of marriage/relationships, family/parenting, and women’s issues. As a personal growth coach, she empowers women with the skills needed to reinvent themselves, thus transforming their lives, so they can fully walk in their God-given purpose. Storytelling has been a gift of hers for as long as she can remember and she wanted to share her gift with others. With her years of experience in ministry, she decided to put what she’s learned over the years to paper – in order to help others – and took on her latest calling as an author. She writes self-help, fiction, children’s books, and personal development courses.
Her writings will humor you, challenge you, but most of all encourage you! She is a firm believer in helping others discover who they are in Christ and how He sees them…in their finished state! Her motto in life – she lives by and challenges everyone to do – is to “do you well!”
