The pastors of three TG Campuses (New York, Boston and Cap-Haitian) were confirmed during an ordination ceremony that was held Saturday, July 30, 2016, at Bank United Center, Coral Gables, Miami.
Rimsky Toussaint, Bornéon Accimé and Elie Casséus, respectively pastoring the New York, Boston and Cap-Haitian (Haiti) campuses received confirmation from Gregory Toussaint, Tabernacle of Glory’s Senior Pastor, during the ordination ceremony.
“Before these three men were born, God had such a plan for them,” declared Pastor Toussaint after quoting Jeremiah 1: 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
“It is very important to understand what an ordination means”, said Pastor Gregory Toussaint. “It is the fact of recognizing the call that God has placed on a person’s life for the ministry. The call did not come from us and we do not give the ability to work; only God does. We do not make anyone a pastor, God does.”
At Tabernacle of Glory, there are various levels of pastorship, explains Pastor Gregory Toussaint. There is first the campus coordinator who essentially has an administrative role. Then the assistant pastor. This one has an administrative role and can also carry out spiritual duties such as marriages or funerals. He works as a pastor inside the campus but leaves the major decisions to the senior pastor of the church. Finally, there is the campus pastor. He is more autonomous but sends regular reports to the senior pastor about his campus management. Over time, there will be also executive pastors.
At the end of the ceremony, Pastor Gregory Toussaint confirmed the three campus pastors. He read them the biblical verse on pastoral duties taken from 2 Timothy 4: “I charge thee therefore before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom, preach the word; be instant in season, favorable or not, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. ”
The three campus shepherds then knelt down with their wives to receive the anointing that will empower them to exercise the task ahead as pastors and assistant pastors.
