On Friday, August 7, 2020, the founding pastor of Truth Tabernacle Apostolic Church, located at 18027 San Bernardino Avenue in Bloomington, visited his heavenly home.
Retired pastor Darnell D. Fletcher founded Truth Tabernacle at 9391 Cypress Street in 1974. When the church outgrew this location in 1984, he purchased five acres in Bloomington and began building a new church. Most of the construction was done by members of the church and Pastor Fletcher himself. In March 1987, they had their first service and have remained there ever since.
A retired pastor, Darnell D. Fletcher was an old-fashioned apostolic preacher and his whole life was the church. He also had a burden for children and founded the Truth Tabernacle Christian Academy (TTCA) in January 1980, which continues under the leadership of his son-in-law and current pastor, Pastor Russell D. Frazier. Pastor Frazier still maintains old-fashioned apostolic beliefs at the Truth Tabernacle today.
Our prayers go out to Pastor Fletcher’s wife, Barbara, and his three children: Tammy Frazier, Kimberly Genelli, and Darnell Fletcher, Jr., as well as their spouses, children, and grandchildren, as well as to all members of Truth Tabernacle Church. Though we know, “To me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21. He will still be greatly missed.
