Bethel DC 360 New Building Project



About seven years ago we embarked on a prayerful and exciting journey of exploring the possibilities of property redevelopment. At a restaurant booth in Southeast DC the vision and dream were shared with Dario and Christina Davis of Cornerstone Development.  From this a trusted partnership was formed.  

Although many hardships and setbacks were experienced over the years, we were determined to continue and to run with the vision. A vision we know the Lord has given for the future of this ministry and that which would allow us to remain a vital member of the Southwest community. 

In 2017, with the shepherding and leadership of Cornerstone Development, we were introduced to Foulger-Pratt Development, LLC.   Since then, we have been working closely with our development partners to redevelop the property with a newly constructed sanctuary, related church facilities, and a residential component. The project will allow our church to continue its mission in the Southwest community, while at the same time helping to meet some of the needs for affordable residential housing.

As Bethel Pentecostal Tabernacle enters a new season, it is with much humility and honor that we rebuild on the “sacred foundations” laid by our founders and the trail blazers before us.  It is especially exciting and to be breaking ground in 2021, the centennial anniversary year of this church and its ministries.  For as we break ground, it’s with great expectations we embark into another century of Power, Praise, and Pentecost.
