Reverend Dr. Joseph G. Ford

Senior Pastor

Dear Faith Family and Friends:

To God be the glory for the great things he has done. What a joy and privilege it is to be pastor of Faith

Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church.

We often mark years by pivotal moments in life: Isaiah 6:1 says “in the year king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord high

and lifted up.” Little did we know that the year 2020 would not only be remembered for the installation of Faith

Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church’s 5 th pastor, but it would also be forever marked in history by two historic

events: the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 and the unnecessarily inhumane salughterings of George Floyd,

Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery and subsequent resistance that has developed.

The high infectious rate of COVID-19 has required the nation to social distance, which has had a tremendous

impact on our ability to gather for worship, study, and fellowship. We have had to adjust to a new normal, but

through it all God has shown himself faithful. Though we have not been able to gather physically, we have used

the conveniences of technology to connect with each other virtually. Despite the pandemic we have continued

with our weekly worship services, prayer calls, Sunday school, Kids Zone ministry, and outreach to the

community. Though we have been physically apart, I believe we have grown spiritually closer to God and to

each other through our Daily Devotionals. Through all we have experienced there has still been a sense

of excitement within the church. Souls are being saved and people are joining virtually.

The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have ignited a push for racial equality not only

across the country but around the world. We as a church are charged to be a prophetic voice in this changing

landscape. We must continue to speak truth to power and champion the cause of the least, lost, and

disenfranchised.

Though this is a challenging time, it is exciting because it allows us to think outside the box and reimagine

ministry. The possibilities are endless! I believe the best is yet to come. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “eye has not seen,

nor ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love

Him.”

I would be remiss if I did not thank the pastoral search and installation committees for their diligence and

faithfulness in working through this process. I also must thank the membership for the love you have shown my

family upon our arrival.

To God be the glory for the great thing he has done!

Yours in Christ,

Rev. Dr. Joseph G. Ford

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, we the members of Faith Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church on July 14th, 2019 voted to accept

as the 5th senior pastor of this church the Reverend Doctor Joseph G. Ford; and

WHEREAS, on March 10, 2020, Gov. Ned Lamont issued an executive order proclaiming a state of emergency

throughout the State of Connecticut as a result of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in the

WHEREAS, to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention and

of ten people or more and social distancing in smaller gatherings; and
