2013 was a great year and especially for the Media Ministry. This Ministry was started by our Pastor, Dr. Reginald M. Leffall – charging us with a mission to spread the Ministry of our Church beyond our Walls – to have an Impact on the community around us. With the explosion of social media, we also wanted to make sure we started tapping into the power of the internet to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to people everywhere. With our Website we have added new ways to interact with, and keep up with the Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church.
In 2014 most of what we Began doing this year will continue to grow and improve.
Let’s start with a Recap of our YouTube Channel –
Fittingly, Deacon Rahshuan Haylock talks about “Moving Forward” from our 69th Church Anniversary, 4th Sunday Morning Service – reflecting on his experience growing up in this church. Our Month Long Observance was a great time to reflect on our historic past, and consider where our church is going into the future. You are invited to be a part of our church as we seek to Serve the community around us, as well as spiritually enrich one another in Christ. Moving forward we hope to see a growth of our church membership, and have plenty of room for those looking to Work doing the Lord’s Work.
We hope to highlight more of our Ministries here at our Church and let the public know what we need help with – so that you can become a member of our Church to help us as we continue to move forward, and prepare to celebrate our 70th Anniversary in October of 2014.
We rolled out Live Streaming in 2013, and will begin to test our system and improve our system to handle Live Broadcasting in such a huge building. We actually did not have enough equipment to rely on it from week to week, and also have been making improvement to our “video sound quality” – and you’ll begin to notice those difference in 2014 as well. We hope to add an additional video camera, so that we can Stream Live and also record our Weekly Services.
For now, most of our ‘test videos’ will be available for FREE on our YouTube Channel – but as the quality of our videos (and sound) improves, we will begin storing Sermons in our site, and creating a special area for Media Ministry Members to go back and watch OR listen to sermons from our Services. We will be asking for your ongoing financial support when this membership area is ready. We are going to be looking for new members to join our Media Ministry to help with covering the Services taking place here throughout the upcoming year.
We filmed quite a bit in 2013 that is still being converted, and uploaded – and we have a TON of audios that still need to be converted and uploaded to our Church Servers as well. We will be looking for those who can help with these tasks, as we seek to use our Media Ministry to positively impact those around us; and bring new members to our Church Family.
If you’re interested in Contributing to our Online Publication here, or helping with storing our Media Files on our Church Server and other Social Network Sites – Please contact the Church Office with your Request.
Wishing all of you a Happy New Year, and a Blessed 2014!

We are working on adding Live Streaming to our Website, to broadcast our Weekly Morning Services here at our historic Church.
During our first attempt to do it live, during 1st Sunday there was an error which occurred, and caused the feed to drop.
Here are a “short clip” from that Service.
Today I ran a live test, and recorded while playing the CD from 2nd Sunday’s Service.
The test went very well, no problems and as of right now I’m looking at 3 hours of uninterrupted Streaming. So this coming Sunday we will attempt to Stream Live during the Morning Service – Please pray for us!
“Listen” to 2nd Sunday’s Service, with Rev. Gregory Perkins-Bowen delivering the message “Pray For The Preacher”
For now you can learn more about our Live Streaming on our Website here….

The Tabernacle Observes 69th Church Anniversary
The Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church is in the midst of a month-long Observance of its’ 69th Church Anniversary.
Organized in 1944 by the late Reverend F.D. Ferrell and 38 visionary “Christ like Charter Members”, who were inspired to organize a church and call a Pastor. The seeds of faith sown now m ore than 69 years ago have blossomed and Tabernacle stands as a strong “Religious Tower” within the Watts Community, our city state and nation.
Thus on this significant milestone, the current members are in the spirit of thanksgiving and celebration, thanking God for the multitude of loving kindness to us as a body of believers in Christ across these 69 years.
Longtime members Deacon Bruce and Sister Robin Hall-Turner are serving as Co-Chairs for this Church Anniversary.

Annual Women’s Day
Written By First Lady Dr. Maye H. Leffall
The “TAB” observed its Annual Women’s Day Service on Sunday, May 19, 2013. A most timely theme was: “Women of Faith Anchored in the LORD, and Positioned for a Changing World (Jude 24-25).” We were truly blessed by an inspiring, dynamic message by Dr. Sandy Scranton-Lee, Professor at El Camino Compton Center and Director/Administrator of the Heavenly Vision Educational Center.
The Women’s Day Chorus provided a Spirit-filled Service in Song under the capable, zestful direction of the Rev. Gregory Perkins-Bowen, Minister of Music; Bro. Nathan Christopher, Pianist/Accompanist; Brother Lawrence Crenshaw, Percussionist; and Sister Constance Hayes, Chorus Director.
The “2013 Woman of the Year,” Sis. Velma Walker, was presented to the Congregation with warm reflections, by Sis. Jackolyn King, former Woman of the Year (2011). The Committee’s recommendations submitted for the 2013 Honoree were ably coordinated by Sis. Alberta Williams.
There was also a “Special Salute” honoring Dr. Gwendolyn Smith-Taylor, who served for many years in the Music Ministry of the “TAB,” particularly in the sharing of her gifts with the Women’s Day Chorus. Sis. Natalie J. Fisher beautifully expressed our heartfelt sentiments in her presentation of Honoree, Dr. Smith-Taylor.
The Committee consisted of Co-Chairs, Sis. Constance Stanley and Sis. Maye Helen Leffall,
and a fine cadre of Captains and Co-Captains who gave active and dedicated service in the planning; and made excellent financial reports. We thank God for EVERY PARTICIPANT; for the presence of EVERYONE; and for ALL who CONTRIBUTED to a great day of WORSHIP, PRAISE, and CELEBRATION.
JOY AND BLESSINGS!
First Lady’s Corner
Quotes chosen by First Lady Dr. Maye Helen Leffall
Attitude Changes Everything
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude is more important than facts, than the past, education, money, circumstances, failures, successes, than what other people think or say or do. Attitude is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a school, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past or the fact that people will act in a certain way. The only thing we can do is to be in charge of our attitudes. Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it; and so it is with you … we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
“Your attitude and mine are always our choice. No matter how bad things are, no one can force you to have a bad attitude, if you don’t want to, and vice versa. That’s really good news because it says that our attitudes don’t have to be the victims of our circumstances or of other people. We choose our responses.”
How to Thrive from 9 to 5
