On the 39th year anniversary of Tabernacle Baptist Church being only the second pastor of the church, the congregation voted Pastor Jason Shumate to be the pastor. Jason and his wife Robbie have been members of TBC since January 2000. Throughout the years Jason and Robbie have served in many roles from Sunday School teacher, Children’s ministry, and other support ministries. Mrs. Robbie has been a School teacher at Tabernacle Christian Academy for over 15 years. Jason has also served as a deacon and after retiring from a nearly 30 year career as a Firefighter/Paramedic, he was voted in to be the Assistant Pastor in January of 2020. Pastor Jason often says that he and his family are a product of the local church. He has testified that he went from the back pew to the pulpit by the grace of God. Pastor Jason and Mrs. Robbie have three grown children who are all married and have four grandchildren at this time. They want to spend as long as God allows investing in others for the cause of Christ as so many have done for them over the years.
