Pastor Jeff Mauer
As our founding Pastor, Jeff Mauer brings over forty five years of experience in walking with Christ. Saved at thirteen years old, he has grown into a strong apostolic leader. Our Pastor walks in the gift of healings, evangelism, prophecy, teaching, wisdom, knowledge and love. Always looking for those who are desperate to receive a move of God in their lives.
While he is a wonderful shepherd for our church, he also shepherds many outside of it. He has been given great revelation from above and does not hold back in teaching those who have ears to hear. His greatest desire is for the lost to find salvation through Christ Jesus. Apart from focusing on the core message of the Bible, he exerts the love of God into those who want to grow in their faith.
Pastor Jeff is gifted in motivating the saints of God towards spiritual stewardship, victorious Christian living and developing an intimate relationship with God. All of these, you will find through his simple, practical and life applicable teachings.
After seven years of writing, our Pastor has released his first book called, “The Last Penny – The hidden truth about sin”. You will not want to miss this book. It is packed out with revelation on heaven and how the courtroom of Jesus operates. More than that, you will find out what sin really is. Many people have asked him, “Why isn’t this being taught in the church? You will find out in this book.
Jeff is joyfully married to Debbie who is also an ordained minister. They are blessed with four children; Jennifer, Kevin, Rebekah and Emmalyn.
Pastor Mark Smith
Faith Tabernacle Church is blessed to have Mark Smith is our associate Pastor. After a tremendous encounter with the Lord a few years ago, Mark was reminded that God had called him to be a pastor when he was a young man. He has proven himself to be incredibly loyal to God and to the body of Christ.
Pastor Mark continues to have amazing encounters with the Lord Jesus. As a result, he brings a zeal and love for the brethren, nurturing them into a holy life with God. Pastor Mark walks in healing and deliverance and has been given great wisdom from above. Using his additional gift of word of knowledge, Mark looks right through the clutter of sin in people, which leads them to be set free of their chains. God has used this man to set many of those held captive by their sin to be free. One of the greatest attributes of Pastor Mark is his love of the Godhead. It is not uncommon to see this Pastor in tears before God.
Both Pastors work very closely together which has formed a tremendous team in ministry. They have both been to Kenya recently and saw hundreds if not thousands saved. They would wake up every morning to find people waiting for them outside to be healed. Many of those people had walked all night long to find these men. Both pastors have their hearts set to save and heal lives through Christ.
Pastor Mark comes from a large family and is blessed to have a father and mother who are sold out believers in Christ. His wife Jeanette is also an ordained minister and is part of the church leadership team. They have five children and all of them are doing well in life.
