Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are servants who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and the edifying of the body of Christ until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ. Billboard_PhotoDr. Robert L. Montgomery Senior Pastor

Dr. Montgomery has been Senior Pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church since September of 1988. When he first arrived, he found a few faithful members busy carrying on in the name of Jesus. He and his family were immediately welcomed by the loving members and shortly began receiving added members into the Church.  Under his leadership, souls have been saved, many unchurched have returned to fellowship, ministers of the gospel have been called and some are pastoring, and the church facility and property has expanded and was updated. Dr. Montgomery received his associates, bachelors, masters and doctors degree from Gwinnett Hall Baptist College located in Lawrenceville, Georgia. He is married for 44 years to his precious wife Emma. They have one son, Marlon, who is a minister of the gospel, a daughter-in-law, and four grandchildren.
 
 
Other associated ministers include:

Associate Pastor Brian Ray – a former Pastor who leads our Education Department and teaches the youth Connecting with Christ classes on Sunday morning and our Wednesday at Noon Adult Bible study class. 
 
 
 
 
 

Associate Pastor Timothy Staten – 
Pastor Tim has recently been ordained in March 2019. He formally led our Men’s Ministry and taught our Sunday morning Men’s Connecting with Christ Classes. Tim has been attending Tabernacle Baptist Church since September, 2011. He received his Masters Of Theology from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 2017. He is married to Shirley and they have four children and three grandchildren. However, he and his family has moved to Indiana and are sorely missed here. Once they join in membership there, well I guess we’ll have to move them from their membership here.
 
 
 
Associate Pastor Anthony Hudson – the newest member to our leadership team has been assigned the position of Outreach Coordinator and he also is a teacher of the men’s Connecting with Christ Class on Sunday morning. 
 
Our Women’s Ministry – is lead by sister Cheryl Drayton who also teaches the Sunday morning Women’s Connecting with Christ Classes along with others.

We regret the passing of one of our beloved deacons in 2018, Deacon Ron Drayton. Rest well my brother.
