The History of Restored, Renewed and Transformed with Tracey Booker (Formerly, The Tracey Booker Talk Show)

The history of the Tracey Booker Talk Show dates back to the spring of 1988. 

 

The host, Tracey Booker was a young woman coming into her first phase of licensed ministry in her church organization.  While attending a national Youth Department board meeting and seminar in Jekyll Island, Georgia, Tracey gave a few comments about young adults between the ages of 21 to 40, in the church organization who didn’t have a place in the church unless they were in ministry.  There was no “program” that addressed the needs of this target audience and the number of members in this age group was beginning to dwindle.

 

As a result of Tracey voicing her concerns, the National Youth Director, Rev. E. Bernice Harris, gave her an assignment.  She commissioned Tracey to come up with a program that would address and meet the needs of this group.  Tracey was given carte blanche to make this happen for the upcoming national convention, “Chautauqua”, that was to convene in July of 1988, in Oakland, California.

 

Tracey went home and began to do her homework and preparation for the upcoming convention.  In her spirit, she felt the need to address relationships, especially for saved and single young adults in this age group.  She researched various areas of relationship and what the biblical principles were regarding marriage and dating for the single and saved.  When she spoke with Rev. Harris again, it was in early June and she asked Tracey for a report of what she planned to do.  Once she was satisfied with what Tracey had prepared, she asked for the name of the forum.  Tracey didn’t have a name for the forum.  She didn’t take time to think about that while in preparation.  Never missing a beat, Rev. Harris said, “Why don’t you call it the "Tracey Booker Talk Show”?  Tracey thought this might be a bit “conceited”, but she didn’t discourage the notion.  What Tracey didn’t know at that time is that God was molding her and making her name great. “…and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”, Genesis 12:2

On a Monday night, at midnight, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, in Oakland, California, the Tracey Booker Talk Show was launched, with a panel discussion about relationships.  The audience was comprised of about 50 – 60 attendees.  The panel was made up of a 2 married couples, 1 married approximately forty years, the other married twenty plus years, and two single ministers, one female and one male.  Thus, an era was born and it would last for years to come.

Over the next eighteen years, the Tracey Booker Talk Show had a presence at various Chautauqua conventions.  The subject matter varied, depending on the needs, feedback and suggestions of the target audience at the time.

 

Presently, Tracey is using her voice again to call people to transformation, restoration and renewal.  The Tracey Booker Talk Show has been renamed to "Restored, Renewed, and Transformed with Tracey Booker". The show airs on Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m.ET. Tune in on at

Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”  Change is inevitable.  It is the one constant that we can depend on.  The format of the show centers on movement and change that takes the individual from the conversion of the mind, to transformation, change and movement to the next level of greatness and mastery, which starts with the renewing of the mind.
