Evangelist Birch was saved at an early age of twelve in 1979, under Bishop John H. Pettiford Jr. from Washington Park, Illinois. In 1995, God gave Evangelist Birch a vision of reaching hurting children through books. On December 1, 2001 the vision came to pass and Tamar Ministry, Reaching Out To Children And Hurting People Through Books, Inc. was founded as a non-profit organization. Since that time the organization have sponsored a Thanksgiving Dinner at Green Park Apartments and held a Chilli Fest which three souls gave their lives to the Lord. Evangelist Birch has many other projects planned in the near future for her organization.
