Pastor Dr. Barbara Smitherman is the Founding and Senior Pastor of the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center.  Doctor Smitherman earned her Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies from Master's International School of Divintiy and Seminary, her Master's of Arts in Theology from Master Theological Seminary and Her Doctorate of Divinty from Master's International University of Divnity.  In 1996 Dr. Smitherman answered the call of God on her life after running from that calling for many years due to her upbringing in which she had been taught that Women could not preach. But when God has chosen you to do a job no one can stop it from coming to pass.  She was ordained as a gospel minister in 2001 and after serving in several assitant positions God called her to start a home Bible study under the title of Barbara Smtiherman Teaching Ministry.  Out of BSTM grew a strong women's ministry Women God's Weapons (WGW) in 1999. 

What started out as a home bible study quickly developed into a church and the Tabernacle of Praise Worship center was founded.
