Pastor James Tate

Founding Pastor~

James Tate, founding pastor of Calvary Tabernacle in Cranford, NJ, has been in ministry for over 50 years.  Having raised up many sons and daughters in the faith, it is apparent that his anointing for teaching and impartation have activated this generation and beyond.  Pastor Tate’s hunger for the move of God and the Holy Spirit has been an earmark of his powerful altar ministry and freedom for the gift of the Holy Spirit to flow.  Recognizing that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the key to witness and evangelism as well as gifts and fruits,
he frequently ministers this gift to the body of Christ.


He and Arlene, his wife of almost 60 years, live in Voorhees, NJ.
