History of the Tabernacle

Fifteenth Tabernacle Roanoke was constructed and built from 1972 – 1975, under the guidance of the late Elder James S. Perdue.  The tabernacle was paid in full within those three (3) years with the help of Elder Perdue and a “faithful few” who worked at a bingo hall once a week during that time believing and trusting in God and the man of God.
