ministry for 46 years.

 

As an Apostle, Quick founded and built churches in North and South Carolina. He currently serves as Chief of Staff,

Superintendent of the SC District, and Chairman of the Ordination Committee in the NC3rd Jurisdiction of Church of

God in Christ. Quick serves in the ministry with Bishop Patrick Wooden Sr.

In 2008, Quick founded Promised Land Community Development Corporation. In the same year, he successfully led the

development and construction of Trinity Gates, a 46-home subdivision, to increase family homeownership.

In 2012, he started the Promised Land Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). To help the male youth,

Quick established the award-winning Black Boys of Distinction (Now known as TEAM: Tomorrow's Exemplary & Anointed Men),

a mentoring program for at-risk boys.

Nations. In 2015, he received the South Carolina NAACP Humanitarian of the Year award.

As of August 1, 2015, Quick assumed the leadership of Legacy Christian School, which serves children 2-months-old

through the 3rd grade. Quick hosts the Promised Place Telecast, which airs every Sunday morning. 

Quick suffered persecution and prosecution for his unwavering faith, unapologetic preaching, and service as a minister.

2020 is when he received the vision for Christian Families Against Destructive Decisions (CFADD).

CFADD's mission is to build generational Christ-centered families. As an organization, we are growing and will make a

significant impact as messengers of God’s word.

  

Our Vision

CFADD's mission is to build generational Christ-centered families. All the pain, suffering, and sin worldwide result from

just one wrong choice. Each day, we make hundreds of decisions that determine how we live. CFADD aims to educate

the public about the benefits and consequences of choices that impact them and their loved ones. We provide resources,

strategies, and principles to aid you in making good, sound decisions. We believe each good decision is an investment

in a better future.

CFADD strives to accomplish the following things.

• Combat misinformation and ignorance that harms families.

• Assure all children have dedicated mothers and fathers to protect, nurture and guide their 

growth and development.

• Combat all cultural ideologies and behavior that disrupts the nuclear family.

• Reduce the amount of media propaganda against the family.

• Promote equality and justice for all babies conceived in the womb.

• Promote abstinence before marriage and monogamy.

• Enhance the desirability of marriage and family life.

Only by restoring the biblical foundations of the home, can the church and society flourish. Our journey together to

restore the foundations of the families and repair the breaches has just begun. (Isa 58.12) Through CFADD, you may

become a part of the revival of biblical family values. Together we will see the heart of the fathers turn to the children

and the heart of the children to their fathers and an end to the curse of fatherlessness in the Earth (Malachi 4:6).

Christian Families Against Destructive Decisions

 

 Our History

2020 was an extremely challenging year for the world as a whole. For our founder, Apostle Tommy E. Quick, the year started

with physical and social isolation due to a tremendous injustice and possibly the most arduous trial of Quick's life.

During this time, God was with Quick and spoke to him about the urgent need to restore families. Quick, inspired by

God's personal dealings and prophetic words from various anointed men, like Bishop Patrick L. Wooden, went to work

on the vision God gave him.

As a result, Christian Families Against Destructive Decisions, called CFADD for short, was founded in 2020 by Quick in

Spartanburg, South Carolina. 

In April of the same year, the first planning sessions took place for CFADD, with the team working diligently on the organization's

administration, branding, and structure. We launched a website and social media presence, gaining 1,000 followers

in only a month. In September, CFADD was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

On October 13, 2020, CFADD sponsored its kickoff event, a family rally in partnership with The Beacon Drive-In, a landmark

in the Spartanburg community since 1946. The rally had over 250 participants, many of whom traveled from various parts

of the tri-state area. In addition, we had speakers from both North and South Carolina. It was a powerful, inspirational

event, providing CFADD with the momentum needed to continue our mission. 

The community rallied around our cause and searched for opportunities to volunteer and donate. After the rally, CFADD

expanded into North Carolina, with its first chapter in Burlington.

In February 2021, we sponsored a 199 men conference, which about 100 men attended. During this conference, our

focus was on the importance of men in the family and society. 

We expanded into the following cities and states in March, April, and May.

  • Portsmouth, Virginia.

  • Zebulon, North Carolina.

  • Asheville, North Carolina.

  • Greenville, South Carolina.

  • Greenwood, South Carolina.

  • Miami, Florida.

In addition, the first CFADD college chapter became operational on campus in April. In the same month, we piloted

a 10-week family ministry program in 4 locations. 

We saw a vital need to reach children with family-themed messages, so we conceptualized CFADD4Kids. CFADD4Kids

aims to teach children about the critical attributes to become a person of good character. Currently, we have ten sessions

recorded for CFADD4Kids. CFADD4Kids will also implement "Camp CFADD," a four-week summer camp for children

ages 8-15.

We have done many wonderful things in under a year, impacting numerous families. With our second annual CFADD Family

Conference coming soon, we are incredibly grateful for how the Lord has blessed us as we focus on building generational

Christ-centered families.

Together, we can, as it states in Malachi: “Turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and hearts of the children to their fathers.”
