Teen Missions saw a need to point people back to the basic principle of salvation based on the shed blood of the lamb.

In January of 1995, we began to build a life-size replica of the Old Testament Tabernacle to use as an evangelistic tool to point others to Christ and to raise funds for AIDS Orphans in Africa.  The building of the Tabernacle was a longtime dream of Director Robert M. Bland and fellow classmate Howard Vanderpool who sat under the teaching of Dr. John A. Hubbard while attending Arizona Bible Institute (ABI).  Dr. Hubbard taught at ABI for 15 years and at The Institute of Los Angles for 28 years. Some of the many he taught included R.G. Le Tourneau, Irving Moon, Charles Fuller and E.C. Eymann.

God gave Moses two skilled craftsmen  Bezaleel of the tribe of Judah and Aholiab of the tribe of Dan, to build the Old Testament Tabernacle in the wilderness. God gave Teen Missions two skilled craftsmen for our replica, Howard and Mary Vanderpool.

  1. Will the Tabernacle ever come to Tennessee. If so when?

  2. Hi, I am a FTM (Honduras Horse ’01), and I am in the Navy now, but I really think you guys should try to get the Tabernacle out to Guam. I remember seeing it a long time ago at Southwestern College when I went there, and I know a lot of people out here in Guam would really be blessed by it. I would love to see it again, too.

  3. what state will it be in this summer? I saw it in grand rapids in 2008 and hope it is near by so I can see it again.

  4. can you tell me when replica of the tabernacle will be close to or in North Carolina or Georgia

    • Right now, it is not scheduled to go to either of those states. It will be going up north next. We also have a replica here at the Teen Missions base in Florida.
