Deliverance Tabernacle Christian Center is affectionately known as “DT” and is characterized as one of the hardest working churches in Pensacola, FL.
DT was originally designated as a Christian Club for Young adults by Bishop Charles Young in December of 1997. On January 1, 1998, he held the first church service.
Sixteen of those who attended the club became saved and filled with the Holy Spirit; they also became the first members and diligently worked side by side with Bishop Young to build what is now Deliverance Tabernacle Christian Center.
Bishop and Lady Young, their 3 boys and 16 members produced a church on the principle that if you build the people, they will build the Kingdom of God. The evidence is strongly apparent by the fruits of our ministry.
The facility the church began in at 9420 Music Lane, was a workout gym that members renovated with their own hands.
Within the 10 years that DT has been established, we’ve purchased over 15 acres of land that include the building of our Sanctuary, Family Life Center, the Soul Center and other properties.
We currently serve as 1 church in 2 locations with the establishment of Deliverance Tabernacle Christian Center located at 5470 Dogwood Drive in Milton, FL.
Since its conception, this location has been able to maintain itself due to the efforts of our Department of Evangelism which goes out into the neighborhoods on any given Saturday.
Our Depatment of Evangelism also does the same in Pensacola, holding events that reach out to the community and draw other churches together to reach lost souls.
Because DT was built on the principle of building people, Bishop Young has established ministries that cover every area such as our Recreation Ministry for the physical man in which we hold basketball, softball, baseball, flag football, cheerleading and other leagues; Kingdom Finance Classes for economical health and others such as Men’s, Women’s, Teens, Youth, Marriage and Singles ministries.
We also have a ministerial alliance that produces exceptional proclaimers and teachers of the gospel, several who are now pastors, even as far as Puerto Rico.
