Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Faith Tabernacle WORLD Ministries is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Faith Tabernacle members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.
Faith Tabernacle is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s word & kingdom around the world. We are looking for members to serve as Ministry Liaisons and Missionaries to these different countries. Currently the support of the ministries is being handled by the Office Staff and Pastor. We are currently working in several areas:
Webuye Kenya – One Way Ministries, Pastor Wycliffe
Jamaica – Cotie
Tijuana Mexico – Holgar Infantil La Gloria orphanage
We are believing G-d for moving into Russia and India
United States Missions
Monroe Louisiana – various churches
Southern Tour (United States) – three southern states, providing support in manual labor, and finances
Purdy Women’s Correctional Facility – Missionary Zone Staff
Leon Sullivan Nursing Home – Missionary Zone Staff
Sharehouse – helping destitute people rebuild
Mockingbird Foster Parent Association – helping local children by recruiting foster parents
We’d like to start up the basketball team again and the Women’s Walking club
Music & Drama
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Faith Tabernacle WORLD Ministries, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
The usher team at Faith Tabernacle WORLD Ministries fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Faith Tabernacle WORLD Ministries. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication. This ministry helps us go out and compel people to come unto Jesus!
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at Faith Tabernacle WORLD Ministries, along with Pastor Barker, serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Intercessory Prayer Team
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Faith Tabernacle WORLD Ministries is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Intercessory Prayer Team, pray for our pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for Children’s Church, and Bible Study. Currently we are fasting, having prayer every day, all night prayer on Friday night and Shut In. This keeps the church, ministries, Pastor and congregation covered and encouraged and growing in the Word and in G-d’s grace.
