Our Pastor

Pastor Allen and his wife Molly have been pastoring Praise Tabernacle for 24 years. Having grown up in Canada as the son of a Pastor, he began pastoring over 38 years ago. Before graduating college, he met Molly, his wife of 39 years, at school. Together they have pastored in Canada and Maine before coming to Rhode Island. They also have raised two children, Margo and Levi. Margo is married to her husband Devon Philbrick, and Levi is married to his wife Gilannie. Margo and Devon have a baby girl named Petra. Levi and Gilannie have three beautiful girls Gia, Zoë, and Sky. As the Rhode Island director of Christians United for Israel, Pastor Allen strongly supports the State of Israel. His strong desire is to encourage people in their faith and to tell unbelievers that God is their friend and not their enemy.

Our Vision

At Praise Tabernacle we want to make Jesus look good! We want people to know that God is their friend. It is not our goal to just be relevant we strive to be revolutionary. To feed, clothe, restore, and love hurting people. Praise Tabernacle is about outreach, discipleship, teaching and evangelism. Our focus is on glorifying God and reaching out to the unchurched and dechurched. Praise Tabernacle has a vision for continued growth, impacting lives and using technology and the arts to strategically communicate the good news of Jesus Christ.
