The question of when we will be gathering together again has been the subject of much prayer and discussion by our church’s leadership. We are asking God for wisdom as we attempt to follow the guidelines of New York State and New York City regarding the timing for reopening our church campus. At the same time, we are making plans and putting protocols in place to ensure your safety and well-being when we are able to meet again. Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available.  

In the meantime, we hope that you will continue to join us for Tuesday Prayer Onlinebeginning at 7pm; Sunday Worship Online, beginning at 9am; and weekday Devotions Onlinebeginning at 10am. We also invite you to check the Churchwide Announcements on our home page to learn about additional online events for each member of your family.

Who Are We?

Altar workers are members of The Brooklyn Tabernacle who pray with people who come forward for prayer during Sunday services. We also assist with collecting written information from the respondents so that our ministries can follow up with them.

  • You must be a member of The Brooklyn Tabernacle.
  • You must love people and have a desire to help them draw closer to God.
  • You must be able to provide good references from a ministry of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in which you were already involved for at least one year.
  • You must be comfortable with receiving direction from church leaders as it relates to ministering to the people at the altar.
  • You must be comfortable with sitting in the front row of the church.
  • You must be able to meet promptly for team prayer each Sunday at 8:45am (prior to the 9am service) or 12:45pm (prior to the 1pm service), depending on the team with which you will serve. 

Activities & Functions

Altar workers sit in the front of the church, through reserved seating, and must participate in the service from that location for the duration of the service.
