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.
