2015 marked the 10th anniversary of Tabernacle of Glory (TG). It was a year of victory and all kinds of accomplishments to the glory of God. “2015 was glorious and 2016 will be even more splendid,” promises Senior Pastor Gregory Toussaint. Here are some TG achievements in 2015.
2015 was a year of victory for the Tabernacle of Glory which, in May, was able to acquire a land to start the construction of its new building. Covering an area of 6.4 acres, this large piece of property is currently assessing several million dollars on the property market. “By the grace of God, we had acquired this land cash! Now we can focus on the construction of the church,” said Pastor Gregory Toussaint. Last July, TG held a brick laying ceremony called in Creole “Operasyon Poze Brik”.
One of the major events Tabernacle of Glory hosted in 2015 was the 4-day Miracle Conference “Conquering the Giants” which took place from July 30 to August 2 in Miami, at UM’s Bank United Center (BUC), a sports complex accommodating 8,000 people. The conference was the peak of a 40-day Fast during which many spiritual giants such as lust, anger, jealousy or poverty went down.
Tens of thousands of people flocked to BUC to “Conquer the Giants” during the 4-day conference. This was one of the largest multicultural Christian events ever organized in Miami with the participation of people of more than twenty nationalities such as Nigerians, Bahamians, Guatemalans, Hondurans, Cubans, Dominicans, Haitians, French, Congolese, Caribbean, white and black Americans etc. They had all been able to experience God’s presence and power through the preaching and teaching of local and international pastors and speakers such as Benny Hinn, Prophet Brian Carn, Gregory Toussaint, Ruddy Gracia, Rimsky Toussaint, Accimé Bornéon, Yvan Castanou and Dr. Mike Murdock. The multicultural crowd could also worship God with anointed Christian artists such as Sinach, Micah Stampley, Phil Driscoll, Ben Hur, the New-York based band Voices of Inspiration and, of course, the TG Worship Team. Many testified that these four days conference have been a blessing to them. All the glory to God!
2015 was also the year of the expansion of Tabernacle of Glory to various cities such as New York, Boston and Cap-Haitian (northern Haiti). These three places now have their own TG campuses. Since September 2015, pastors Rimsky Toussaint (New York) and Accime Borneon (Boston) joined the big TG family; In Haiti, Brother Elie Casséus works on the Cap-Haitian campus.
Conference in 77 Languages
In March-April 2015, TG held a week of conference called “The Riddles of the Night”. Its most distinctive feature was its simultaneous broadcasting in 77 languages worldwide, making it the first Christian event broadcast in multiple languages all together. This lines up with the multicultural vision of TG to preach the Gospel to all nations, in all languages.
Pastor Greg on TBN
Pastor Gregory Toussaint appeared on October 21 on Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN), the world’s most watched Christian television network. Invited by the renowned televangelist Benny Hinn, Pastor Greg made an appearance on the show “This Is Your Day”, one of the world’s most-watched Christian programs, seen daily in 200 countries by hundreds of millions of viewers.
Ministering in Haiti
The Shekinah & Tabernacle of Glory ministries also extend their activities to Haiti organizing crusades and mission trips. In Cap-Haitian, from August 27 to 30, Pastor Toussaint held a conference called “My Name is Success.” It was a real success. Over 700 people attended every night and 1,000 gathered the last night to hear the Word of God. Other events targeted the youngest crowd such as the “Shekinah Championship” taking place in Cap-Haitian from November 6 to January 9. A football championship was previously played in Limbé (northern Haiti) from May to July 2015. The overt goal is to proclaim the Word of God through sports.
Radio Shekinah all over Haiti
There is practically a Shekinah Radio station in almost all the 10 departments of Haiti. The Florida-based radio station has branches in Port-au-Prince, Cap-Haitian, Gonaïves, Port-de-Paix, North St. Louis, Les Cayes, Jacmel, Mirebalais, Hinche, Jeremie, La Gonâve and Miragoâne.
Involved in the North Miami Community
Aware of his responsibility in the community of North Miami, Tabernacle of Glory (TG) is used to organize various types of events such as community workshops on family and immigration issues, civic debates etc. Last September, TG felt particularly affected by the tragic death of Henry Toussaint (no relation with Gregory Toussaint), a young student from North Miami Senior High School where TG currently meets on Sundays. Henry lost his life while crossing the streets to go to class. The Sunday following the accident, Tabernacle of Glory held a special service with 300 young students from North Miami Senior High School, and the church significantly contributed to cover the costs of Henry’s funeral.
“Around the Table”
Radio Shekinah launched in 2015 a show named “Around the Table”. Broadcast daily, it provides an opportunity to young adults, professionals, doctors, lawyers, accountants, nurses etc, to give back to the community.
2015: the Year of Media
2015 was also a great year in terms of media. Radio Shekinah brought the Gospel of Christ in numerous homes of more than 50 countries and in 4 languages: English, Creole, French and Spanish. A new app (Shekinah.fm) was launched and downloaded over 50,000 times. In terms of social networks, more than 70 000 people follow TG and Shekinah on Facebook, besides Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. Videos of Youtube channels “Shekinah Tel” and “Tabernacle of Glory” totaled over 4 million views. Available in French, Creole, English and Spanish, www.tabernacleofglory.net website has gotten over one million visitors in 2015.
TG Youth Ministries Are Blooming
TG is a young church with at least two youth ministries: Youth Ministry (TG Youth) and Young Adults Ministry (TGYAM). TG Youth meets every Friday at 7pm. The Youth also hosts a show named “Real Talk” every Saturday on Shekinah Radio from 3-5pm. This Youth ministry had a spiritual Retreat from September 4 to 7 called “Anointed” in Lake Placid, Florida. As for TGYAM, reactivated in February 2015, they meet every Monday at 8pm. The Young Adults Ministry will have a spiritual Retreat in Lake Placid called “Empowered” from Feb 12-15, 2016.
Spanish Worship Is Back
Worship in Spanish is back to the Tabernacle of Glory with an anointed and spirit-filled new team. Shekinah Spanish is also on the air with the show “Conexion Divina” broadcast from 10pm to midnight.
Shekinah Radio is also in English notably with the show “Connection” broadcast every night from 8-10pm. English-speaking listeners can listen to powerful prayers at noon and enjoy the best of Gospel music every day.
12 Nights of Worship
Finally, the year ends with the “12 Nights of Worship”, from December 23 to January 3, 2016. Pastor Donnie Mcclurkin (January 1) and Lakewood worship leader Ingrid Rosario (January 2-3) will be among the special guests at these worship nights. According to Pastor Gregory Toussaint, it is a way to end 2015 and start 2016 in Glory.
