Beulah Tabernacle was born out of the basement of Deacon and Sister Mark and Jessie Elliot, where Pastor Michael, then Minister Michael, assisted two senior elders in conducting weekly prayer in 1983. Pastor Michael continued to faithfully conduct these prayers and within several months, the prayer meeting grew to include Bible study. Within another few months God blossomed the prayer and Bible study into a weekly Sunday School, cradled in the home of Apostle and Mother Wilbur and Sandra Jones.
In 1985 at the International Holy Convocation of the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc. (COOLJC) in Los Angeles, California, Pastor Michael was ordained Elder after passing his catechism with a perfect score of 100. It was at this time that Pastor Michael was officially appointed to the sacred office Pastor of Beulah Annex which was the original name of church.
In 1987, Pastor Michael and the congregation moved to our first church home located at 1328 Flatbush Avenue and the church name became Beulah Tabernacle. After many battles with the enemy, much direction from God, and the leadership of Pastor Michael, the Beulah Tabernacle Family marched to our next church home on March 20, 1994 located at 2256 Nostrand Avenue. This date is so significant to Pastor Michael and the Michael Family as it is the birthday of his late mother, Sis. Evadne Louise Michael; who will forever be most dear to his heart. I love you, mom! See ya in the Rapture!
The ministry of Beulah Tabernacle is nestled in the bustling area of East Flatbush, Brooklyn New York, blocks from Brooklyn College. It is in this ripe area that Pastor leads the congregants in establishing a community presence and sowing seeds of the gospel to bring change into the lives of individuals and families living in East Flatbush and surrounding areas.
Acts 2:42-47 (KJV)
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles ‘doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers … And all that believed were together, and had all things common … And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
