Experiencing the Presence of God is central to our ministry at The Tabernacle. The word of God says that He “inhabits the praises of His people.” Praise & Worship, facilitated through the use of the Arts, stirs the heart of God and moves us into a place of divine encounter!
The foundation of our worship and the use of arts within the church, is the desire to experience the presence and glory of God. We believe that music and the arts bring people to a place of worship where a face to face encounter with God is available to them. God longs to reveal Himself to us; for us to abide with Him and experience His healing, His grace, His love, His power and glory (Psalm 68:24-28). True worship carries us to that place, and that is why our priority is to bring all expressions of the arts in worship back into the church.
At The Tabernacle, you will both hear and see a worship experience. This experience is expressed through music of all styles, both songs that we have written and songs being sung worldwide. You will see people passionately expressing their heart of worship through dance (Psalm 149:3), raising their hands (Psalm 63:4,134:2), clapping (Psalm 47:1), bowing (Phil 3:19), freely singing both the written (Psalm 4:1) and unwritten song (Psalm 98:1), and even shouting (Psalm 47:1) and jumping (Psalm 18:29) with exuberance in praise before Him. Although it is all expressed in beautiful order (1 Cor 14:40), it is a time where we are captivated by our living God and the joy of knowing Him (Ephesians 3:14-21)!
Our goal is to provide quality programs, productions, and training that will reach the world as well as those within our church body. Our Goal — true excellence. Our Mission — to reach those that are lost through the restoration of the arts within the church… ALL to bring worship to our Lord.
Our Lead Worshippers
As lead worshipper and Pastor of “One Call Worship” Ministries at The Tabernacle, Rev. Aimee Sych, has had the opportunity to live her heart’s cry before a great body of believers! She is weekly reaching her goal of “pastoring them into an experience,” through teaching, discipleship, and the true demonstration of corporate worship! Together with her co-leaders and team of worshippers, The Tabernacle is a true supernatural worship experience!
Aimee’s heart has always been to replicate her lifestyle of worship and leadership in the lives of others. So, when you attend the Tabernacle, you will see many step out and lead with the same passion and heart as Aimee has modeled as Pastor of this ministry for over 15 years. Seeing this freedom and abandonment modeled every Sunday has released our congregation into a beautiful expression of worship … what an honor it is to serve our people in this dimension!
I have served at the Tabernacle for over 20 years and started in music ministry as a drummer for the youth band. Since that time I have been called up to co-lead along side Pastor Aimee Reid-Sych, and have been at that post for over 10 years. This is a role that is both a high honor and a serious responsibility. I have been so blessed to be able to use my gifting each and every week, and to see the atmosphere in Church change at each downbeat as the One Call team leads out.
My heart for worship is to see lives changed in the presence of God. That may seem like a simple statement, but worship is one of the most intimate times between a believer and the Heavenly Father, and is a time for God to move in the hearts of the heavy burdened and lost. It is the time where healing is possible in any aspect of a persons life, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. It is a time to meet with Jesus! Our Father longs for His children to seek after Him and run to His arms! I want to aggressively seek Him and live my life according to His will. I want to be a game changer in this day where the people of this Earth are blinded by trivialities. I want to see the Church rise up and take its rightful place, being a beacon of light and hope as Christ intended it to be.
My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long.
Todd Bemis was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. He began singing and playing music at the age of 6 and has continued in music ministry ever since. As an anointed worshiper, Todd brings an unique style of worship from his past experiences in leading this congregation. As a young adult he led worship at The Tabernacle using contemporary/rock styles, and then through gospel as the Minister of Worship and Arts at Family Worship Center of Erie, PA. Now as part of our team once again, his heart is for everyone to have a genuine worship experience. Todd’s passion is to see God’s Presence be central to all we do at The Tabernacle, it’s our DNA, and Todd’s life and call have been shaped by this identity.
