The Vision

On September 23, 2021, at the 115th General Assembly of The Church of God, Bishop Oscar Pimentel shared his heart with the Church during his General Overseer Annual Address regarding a vision to have a place of our own for annual assemblies. The membership was stirred and approved the formation of an exploratory committee to research the feasibility of constructing our own tabernacle and provide a report the following year. The video to the right is an excerpt from the Annual Address.

The Report

On Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at the 116th General Assembly of The Church of God, the Assembly Tabernacle Exploratory Committee presented their findings to the Church. A 90+ acre property within Cleveland, TN city limits was identified as a feasible location by the committee. Deliberations during both the Questions and Subjects Committee and the Ways and Means Committee sessions resulted in General Assembly approval of fundraising for a property as well as general guidelines to pursue a purchase.

The Plan

Shortly after the 116th General Assembly, Bishop Oscar Pimentel appointed Brother Tim Griffin as campaign manager to lead fundraising efforts for the Tabernacle project.

In this video, Brother Montgomery shares the vision for a property under consideration and the steps required to reach the goal of constructing a tabernacle.

Phase 1

The first step for The Church of God is to raise at least $1 million. Doing so enables designated persons or committees to negotiate with sellers and enter into contractual agreements. With any negotiation, ensuring a strong financial position for The Church of God is of utmost importance. There are several ways you can give and be a part of Church history.

Phase One Progress


Phase 2

The goal during phase two is two-fold:  pay down debt and renovate property. The purpose of renovating the property is to enable use by The Church of God during the General Assembly, BTI, retreats and/or camps. Property renovation also involves creating a camping ministry that can be used by outside groups to be a source of additional income to the Church for reducing debt and enable saving for future construction projects.

Phase 3

When debt is sufficiently reduced or eliminated, The Church of God can begin a new savings program. Phase three will implement a new fundraising effort to secure financing for or pay for a new assembly tabernacle.
