Pentecostal Tabernacle is a Spirit-filled church located in Water Valley, Kentucky led by Pastor Markus & Emily McClure.
Our Pastor & First Lady
Rev. Markus & Emily McClure
Pastor Markus and his wife Emily are no strangers to Pentecostal Tabernacle.
When our pastor was only 2 years old, his father became the pastor of our church and remained in that position for 34 years until his retirement. Pastor Markus grew up in this church, even helping construct new buildings as the congregation expanded. All through his upbringing, he was able to glean from his father on what it meant to be a good pastor until he left to serve his country after high school.
After serving time in the Marine Corps, Bro. Markus returned to Water Valley and eventually became Associate Pastor while also working as an EMT in a nearby town. In 2016, he answered the call when our congregation voted him in as pastor.
He gladly serves our church and community alongside his supportive wife, Emily, and 2 daughters, Naomi & Adah, and their dog Lily Joy. His hobbies are spending time outdoors and metal detecting.
First Lady Emily McClure has attended Pentecostal Tabernacle since birth. She has a passion for seeing the impossible take place, reading, and eating potatoes.
As an anointed worship leader, Sis. Emily leads the attendees of each service into the Throne Room to worship the King of Kings. She loves to talk about God’s Word, prayer, and other topics as a blogger as well.
Her greatest joy outside of the Lord is her family!
Rev. Larry & Linda McClure
Bishop Larry and Linda McClure came to the church in 1982 with their 2 sons, Chris and Markus.
They served here for over 34 wonderful years, dedicating their lives to the ministry. They have a heart for the people and are very mission-minded. They started a mission program that spans the globe with an outreach that includes Ghana, West Africa and Mexico City, not to mention their local community and all over the United States.
In addition to all they do for our church and congregation, they love to spend time with their children, 4 grandest, 2 greatest, and their dogs. Bishop enjoys to go camping and be in the outdoors. Sis. Linda enjoys coloring scripture art, shopping, cooking, and reading.
Pentecostal Tabernacle is blessed to have Bishop and Sis. Linda who have servants’ hearts and are willing to lead by example.
