Pastor Timothy Lovelace

Timothy Lovelace, Senior Pastor, founded Faith Tabernacle, A Spirit Filled Church, in 1999. His commitment to the Lord came at an early age as he recognized the ministerial call upon his life. Following his marriage to Starla in 1977, he attended bible college for two years.  In 1987 he began serving as Youth Pastor of Spring Tabernacle in Spring, Texas under Pastor C.G. “Jabo” Green.  In 1990, he formed C.A.S.T. Ministries (Christians Against Satan’s Tactics) where he, along with the singing group, ministered wherever there was an open door–street ministry, prison ministry, etc. They ministered at Garza West prison facility in Beeville, Texas for many years.  Since 1999 the church has obtained 12 acres and has built a 10,200 sq.ft. building which houses the sanctuary, educational facilities and fellowship hall.   In 2021 Faith Tabernacle became known as THE WAY CHURCH.  “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

Ministry praise team in prison and street ministry. She continues to assist her husband by being over the praise and worship at The Way Church.  She attributes the unity of the worship team to anointed worship leaders, singers and musicians who desire only to please God through their ministry as they “Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.” (Psalms 33:3)
