The Living Word Church brought in multiple changes to the expansive mansion that once served as Mike Tyson's not-so-humble abode. The battered pool was converted into a sanctuary while the living room was changed to serve as a place of gathering. The old fireplace was replaced with a water fountain while the garages now serve as a nursery and classrooms. The Mike Tyson Tiger cages, where he famously kept his four tigers, were demolished to make way for a pavilion.
