Dr. Thomas Lewis Murray is the founding and Senior Pastor of Anointed Temple of Praise Outreach Ministries (ATOP) in Memphis, Tennessee. On January 2, 2000, the first formal worship service of Anointed Temple of Praise was held at the Marriott Hotel. This was a high time of praise as the church celebrated a “New Ministry for a New Millennium.” Since that time, Anointed Temple of Praise has grown by leaps and bounds. In March 2002, the church was able to purchase the former Evangel Church at 3939 Riverdale. Since moving into our new church home there has been continuous development in ministries and outreach.
