Vice Provost of Columbus, GA


NORMAN E. HARDMAN, Vice-Provost of Columbus campus for Kingdom Truth University. Dr. Hardman is the founder, Senior Pastor and CEO of Mount of Transfiguration in Opelika Alabama. God has allowed him to prepare himself educationally within the higher institutions of learning by obtaining a B.S. in Business from Tuskegee University, a master’s degree in Business from Troy State University and a Doctor of Divinity from St. Thomas Christian University in Jacksonville, Florida.

Dr. Hardman also has 23 years of managerial experience in Corporate America which he uses to strengthen church organizational growth and development. He is anointed to build church infrastructures, develop, and train church leaders, ignite and build an energetic and effective men’s ministry, and merge the hearts of Pastors and church leadership in order to accomplish the vision of the Pastor. His main objective is to advance God’s Kingdom through teaching the Word of God with accuracy which transforms minds and develops champions.

God has blessed him with seven anointed children who are called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ with simplicity and with passion that brings him to a predestined call to deliver the Word of God. He stands with great humility to extend only that which God has placed within him. For it is truly God who unlocks the revelations of His eternal Word to give instructions to identify and obtain our purpose and ultimate, our destiny.
