Sis. Hale is our first lady of New Life Tabernacle here in the city of Corcoran, California. Pastor & Sis. Hale has been happily married for the past 35 years. Sis. Hale grew up in the Apostolic Church, being raised in a Christian home since she was in the third grade. She remembers walking up the sidewalk, as a young girl, going to their first service at Truth Tabernacle in Fresno, California. In her own words, “her families’ life was never the same”.
It was at the young age of 12, that she received the gift of the Holy Ghost and was baptized in the lovely name of Jesus Christ for the remission of her sins.
It was in 1980, that she married our Pastor and moved to the city of Rialto, in southern California. It was there that her husband and herself became very active within the church in the churches various ministries. Their she worked very closely with the pastors’ wife and there is where our pastors wife learned her art of serving people. She worked within the various ministries such as outreach, bus ministry, the Sunday school department as a teacher, and the Ladies ministry of the local church.
Eight years later, our Pastor and his wife felt the call to go and evangelize. They traveled for over 4 and ½ years until God opened the door for them to come and take the Pastorate here in the city of Corcoran, California.
Since coming to Corcoran, they have raised their two children and now have added one son-in-law, Jeremy and 5 precious granddaughters, Alana Jo Vaughn Loo, Rori Layne Loo, Audrey Kate Loo, and twins, Olivia & Abigail.
Also, their son Jonathan married Brittany and they have 1 daughter, Natalia Grace Hale.
