SENIOR PASTORS
In 1975 Pastors Michael and Maria Durso had a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ. They gave God their whole life, and God gave them back a life that was whole. They started to attend The Brooklyn Tabernacle and immediately got involved in ministry. On Mothers Day of 1985, Pastor Cymbala, senior pastor of The Brooklyn Tabernacle asked them to pastor Christ Tabernacle. Their lives are living proof that if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation.  2 Cor. 5:17.
