How To Find Us

World vision

This independent, non-denominational church was originally under the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination . "The Tab", as it is affectionately called, continues to have a strong missionary emphasis with outreach in many world areas. Today our primary and associate missionaries serve with the following mission organizations:

In recent years we have had a direct ministry to the Ukraine, and are moving ahead with further direct involvement in the Islamic world and the Orient.

Local outreach

Local outreach has not been neglected. From time to time we have training classes to help people learn how to share their faith in Christ with their friends, family, and neighbors. As a result of our caring for the lost, we have seen the Lord use us to establish other independent ministries in the Hampton Roads area:


The Tabernacle Church has a very active youth program with some eighty young people participating. Campouts, sporting events, ski trips, witnessing, and Bible study all help keep active mindsMakeMap.d and bodies growing in Christlikeness. Many of our older youth are pursuing higher education at places like:

Our New Worship Center

On September 21, 1998, construction began on a new worship and education center just two blocks south of our former Granby Street location, which is now a Fire and Paramedics training center, and a city auditorium. Seating capacity is 1200, twice that of the previous auditorium. "Miracle 2000", the project's name, carried on former pastor John Dunlap's philosophy: FAITH plus VISION plus SACRIFICE equals MIRACLE, a motto which has proven true over and over through the years as The Tab has seen God do "exceeding abundantly more than we could ask or think". The first worship service in the new building was on March 5, 2000. Praise God for his goodness!
