HANDPICKED BY GOD — It is, by all accounts, because of Elder Charles McCarley’s fervent desire to demonstrate love the way God specifically commands us that the historic Tabernacle Of Praise Church has become the beacon of light for which it is widely known in Buffalo, New York as well as throughout the Body of Christ.

“I became unsatisfied with ministry as usual,” McCarley, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when asked when did sense that God was strategically preparing him for ministry. “I believed there had to be more to this then just church Sunday after Sunday.”

That, as a result, practically sums up why McCarley, 44, felt it was time to ask God for a broader sense of direction, to order his steps the more if you will…you know, to position and develop him so that he could, in turn, exemplify a proverbial monumental impact, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.

“I began to search for God and, within that search, it taught me how to love people and that sparked my heart toward the community,” McCarley explained. “Our church has to be community centered so that they can see the love of Christ through the people of God.”
