The Elders at Tabor Church
Jim and Jennifer Sandberg have been part of the Tabor fellowship since 1991, when Jim came on staff as Pastor. He now serves as Teaching Elder and leads the congregation along with the other Elders. After completing seminary training in 1984, he served for seven years on staff at a large church in Ohio before coming to Tabor.
His primary gift is the passionate and practical exposition of the Word of God in its original context, applied to real life today. He also has a heart to come alongside people as they live that life, to shepherd them in following Jesus Christ. Jim and Jennifer have four grown children.
Brad and his wife, Alicia, first met while they were serving together on a short-term mission assignment in the Caribbean. They were married in 2003, and the Lord has blessed their family with 4 wonderful children.
Brad surrendered his life to Christ at a young age. He went on to study Christian Education at Bryan College before becoming a high school Bible teacher in Florida. In 2005, Brad and Alicia moved to the same island where they met and served in the Caribbean for the next 9 years. His primary responsibility was facilitating a Bible training ministry for local church leaders. Brad is continuing his education at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he has completed an MA in Missiology.
In 2014, he came to serve as a pastor at Tabor. His driving passion is to see the people of Tabor grow as disciples of Jesus, and long to go make disciples of Jesus in their own community and among the nations.
