Husband, father, youth pastor, recording artist, music producer. These are just some of the words that describe Minister Todd E. Thompson. But the one word that best describes him is a worshipper. Minister Thompson, a.k.a Neophyte, was born December 13th, 1971, in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The only child of Edward and Barbara Thompson, Minister Thompson was born with a song in his heart and a broomstick in his hand.

Husband, father, youth pastor, recording artist, music producer. These are just some of the words that describe Minister Todd E. Thompson. But the one word that best describes him is a worshipper. Minister Thompson, a.k.a Neophyte, was born December 13th, 1971, in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The only child of Edward and Barbara Thompson, Minister Thompson was born with a song in his heart and a broomstick in his hand. Because of his family’s choir, The McIver Memorial Choir, Minister Thompson developed a love for gospel music. As he got older, he was introduced to hip hop music and immediately found his voice. At the age of 20, Minister Thompson accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior, and almost immediately, the Lord used him and his love of gospel and hip hop music to form a sound all his own.

Partnering with Bryant Tabb, Minister Thompson helped in the formation of Praimantis Records. This partnership yielded two albums, “Manuscripts of A Servant” and “N.O.L.-Newness Of Life,” upon which Minister Thompson is featured as an artist, songwriter, and producer. Minister Thompson has also been featured on several other projects, including The Corelink compilation album, “The Standard” by Nazarene Sect and “The Thunderground” by the Frontlynas. In 2015 and 2016, Minister Thompson was the opening act for the We Feed The Homeless Philly fundraiser event in Philadelphia, where he has been fortunate enough to share the stage with local greats such as Vertical Current and open for such R&B notables such as Chrisette Michele and Kelly Price. In 2019, Minister Thompson released his debut album entitled “The Perfect Imperfection,” a project he wrote and produced. In 2020, he was featured on B.E.R.I.D.O.X’s latest album, “Sign of the Times,” on a song called “Images.”

Along with music ministry, the Lord has used Minister Thompson to preach the Word of God as well. Answering the call to preach in his early 30’s, Minister Thompson has had the privilege to be one of the opening speakers at the 2012 IFC Power Conference in Virginia Beach and with various ministries in and around the city of Philadelphia, including The Mens’ Mission and First Church of Faith, Love and Deliverance Church’s street ministries. Minister Thompson also served in his own congregation in ministries such as the Praise and Worship team, the Youth Department, serves as Youth Pastor, and as one of the overseers of Childrens’ Church.

Future endeavors for Minister Thompson include P.U.S.H. basketball camps, which will teach basketball skills and life skills to young people, such as conducting yourself on job interviews, filling out job applications, and conflict resolutions. He is also working on an Internet radio show called “The Chop Shop,” a talk show that will include the four major loves of his life: Jesus, his family, music, and sports.

Minister Thompson hopes that his efforts in all these areas help to impart lessons learned from his own life experience to young people in an effort to encourage, inspire, and lead them to a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. His life scriptures can be found in 1st Timothy 4:12 and 2nd Timothy 4:5, which reads, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity. But you, keep your head in all.
