Our Team

John and Evelyn born and raised in New York City.  After meeting at age 17, Evelyn began to tell John about a personal and living relationship  with Jesus. It was through her friendship that he surrendered his life to Christ. A few years later they would marry. John and Evelyn have three wonderful children, Erica Lynn, Cpl. Jacob Daniel- US Marine and the youngest Amanda Eve.


After spending ten years together serving in a Spanish church, God would move John and Evelyn out to a wonderful church, Christ Tabernacle in Glendale, Queens. It was there that John and Evelyn were ordained as pastors and served in various capacities including children's ministry, marriage ministry and counseling over an 18 year span. In November of 2009, God moved them to
Hope Tabernacle where they now serve as the Lead Pastors.
