Thurman was an honorable member and Head Deacon at Greater New Hope Deliverance Center, under the leadership of Dr. Bishop J.S. Kerby Sr. in Columbus, Ohio over 14 years. He was an active mentor in the church until his health began to fail him. Deacon Thurman Elliott was one of the original members of the church organizing committee in 2008.
