About Pastor Tanya

Hello. I am Pastor Tanya Hodges.

I am a white country girl with a love for the inner city that could only come from the Lord. I accepted Christ at 16 years old. For the first time in my life I believed that I was special to God. I held onto Jesus with everything I had. At 28 years old God put a desire in my heart to start a Teen MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) in Flint, MI.  God opened the doors wide open for that to happen! We saw over 100 teen moms in 2 years. A while later God called me into pastoral ministry. I led the New Life Church, Children’s Department on the eastside of Flint. In three years time I became the senior pastor. During my pastorate I accepted the Development Director position at the Flint Eastside Mission, where I wrote the vision and mission statement, wrote and implemented grants and began to dream of the NOW House for recovery program. This is where God introduced me to my husband Pastor Jerry Hodges. Jerry was pursuing his ministry license at our church. We fell in love! In 2019, we were married and began our own ministry, Always Hope.
