What to Expect

What are services like?

Sunday Services start with 30-40 minutes of contemporary worship music, which always results in a grace-filled atmosphere. Sometimes, a presentation follows (video, spoken word, skits - any of these are possible). Announcements are made and offering is collected before the sermon begins, which is another 30 minutes. Full service times are about 1.5 hours. Sermons are delivered either from a member of our Pastoral Staff or by a guest speaker. All are encouraged to stop by our Welcome Tent after services for refreshments and fellowship. We also have two prayer services on Wednesdays at 12pm and 7pm. Noon prayer services are for one hour, and the night service includes worship, so it lasts about as long as a Sunday service. Our youth service, better known as MiSFIT NYC, takes place on Friday nights at 8pm. Expect lively music ranging from contemporary praise and worship to hip-hop. Also expect dancing, spoken word performances, DJing, and any other creative outlet youth want to worship the Lord through. MiSFIT NYC fills the sanctuary of Christ Tabernacle with hundreds of students every Friday night ranging from middle school, to high school, to college ages.


What is the community like?

Being a church in New York City, the church community reflects the varied demographics of NYC. Our members are very diverse in ethnicity, age, and in testimony, showing that all people are God's children.


What if I'm not a Christian?

Although all members of Christ Tabernacle are believers of Jesus Christ, those who have not accepted him as their Lord and Savior are welcome to all services. One of the most important acts at Christ Tabernacle is to show the same amount of love Jesus showed to everyone; regardless of belief, appearance, or any other difference among us.

Church Leader

Michael Durso

Michael Durso

Michael Durso grew up with a minimal understanding of God. He came of age during the hippie movement, where casual drug use was generally accepted. In 1975 while living with his girlfriend Maria, they had an encounter with Christ that led to a radical conversion.michael-durso Since 1985, Michael has been the senior pastor of Christ Tabernacle, which is the first church to come out of the Brooklyn Tabernacle. Starting with just 30 people, the church has grown to thousands, with seven services each weekend. The core service remains the midweek prayer meeting, which both Michael and Maria believe is essential. When the youth ministry began to explode in 1997, Michael saw the opportunity for unprecedented growth and diverse creativity. This enabled the youth to showcase their gifts and minister to the Lord. With a passion to continuously reach the lost for Christ and minister to the disenfranchised, the ministry of Christ Tabernacle under Michael Durso extends outside the church, into neighboring communities and beyond. Christ Tabernacle has been called a City of Refuge where those who walk into the building can experience and feel the love of God. It has been said of Christ Tabernacle; there is “no place like home”. This statement is a true reflection of the heart and desire of Michael Durso for a Christian community.
