Wayne Gilliss, Senior Pastor

Pastor Gilliss is no stranger to LifePoint Church. He served as Sunday School director and assistant to the Pastor until he assumed the Pastorate of Three Rivers Worship Center in Pittsburgh.  After ten years, he and his family have returned to this area by the direction and hand of God. Pastor Gilliss and his family are dedicated to God and to this church. His vision is to see the continued growth of this assembly and the hand of God touch, deliver and heal many lives. 

This church is, and has been a lighthouse, pointing people of every age and nationality to a new and better life.

Stump Color
Ed Stump, Founding Pastor

After much prayer, fasting and direction from God, Apostolic Tabernacle was established in January 1979 by  Rev. C. Ed Stump. The first service was held in the basement of a home in Farmington, N.J. There were approximately 25 in attendance in that first service.

After 32 years of compassionate and giving leadership and growth, Pastor Ed and Bea Stump felt it was time to retire. By prayer and fasting, and with the unanimous ratification of the church body, the mantle of Pastor was passed to Rev. Wayne Gilliss.

Extended Leadership Team
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God and realizes that they are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Their desire is to devote themselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip other believers with Biblical principals and teachings to help their lives propel forward in God and His blessings.
