August 1996 was the beginning of the ministry called True Fellowship Worship Center (TWFC). After sharing bible study and prayer meetings in their home from February to July, it was placed on the heart of Pastor Emeritus Myrtis Armbrister to start a full service ministry. The current spiritual leaders are husband-and-wife team Apostle Benjamin and Prophetess/Pastor Sharon Boykin.

As the church grew over the years, in addition to the growing pains, there were numerous trials they had to endure. Those situations brought about “much faith and persistence,” Sharon Boykin said. “God has used this ministry to help countless individuals gain their deliverance in many areas that they were fighting with in their lives.”

According to both Boykins, TFWC is founded on the love of our Lord. “In the course of teachings, we can become truly free within ourselves through the power and deliverance of the Holy Spirit,” Apostle Boykins said. “Then and only then can we effectively help others to reach out and worship the Father in Spirit and in truth.

Together the Boykins minister from Miami to South Carolina and currently hold their weekly services in the Cambria Suites Hotel at 141 SW 19 Ct. in Dania.
