About Us

About TLG Ministries

At TLG Ministries, we are grounded in the principles of faith, compassion, and service. Serving as a pillar of support in Northwest Indiana, our non-profit organization is committed to enriching the lives of families in need. Through our diverse faith-based initiatives, we provide both practical aid and spiritual sustenance to the community.

Our Vision

Our vision is designed to be big enough to meet the needs yet small enough to help people one-on-one as we fill the gap between community services and self-sufficiency with our three-pronged approach of building people in all areas:

Emotional Support

Spiritual Support

Physical Help

and to be a Resource to Locate Resources.

Meet the Team

Reverend Tawnya Gregory, BA

Founder, Director

She is a woman of compassion for the hurting and lost. She desires to reach others by helping provide for the physical items they know they need to give them the Spiritual things they don’t know they need, JESUS!

As a wife of over 35 years, a mother of 3 grown children, a former homeschool educator, business owner, worship leader, public speaker, preacher, teacher, author, ministry pioneer, mentor and more, God has used Tawnya to launch ministries within the church and external to the church. To raise up others to step into their callings in those ministries.  As a missions pastor since 2004, she has been blessed to minister locally and in Australia, Costa Rica, Panama, Uganda, Kenya, Peru, and more.

Tawnya’s deepest desire is to help all people grow and become the best person they can with the love of Jesus Christ in their lives. Whether it is those in need as families trying to get back on their feet or foster children needing to feel love to be healed and set free from the bondage of anger, fear, hurt and abuse. To see this come to pass Tawnya strives to bring awareness to others on ways to help including sharing how getting involved in foster care programs can change more than just a child’s life. It can impact a community.. 

Having grown up as the youngest natural child in a home that took in foster chilcren, Tawnya developed a passion for the children and families in the foster care and works to help connect those in need with the resources available. 

Her memoirs of her childhood, how it shaped her perspective and made her the person she is today, are recorded in her book, A Natural Child In A Foster Care Home, published under the pen name Tanja Luayne. More information about the book is available here.

Hope of the World Ministry

Hope of the World’s mission is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost of the world and it accomplishes it in two ways.
