Our Pastor:

Pastor Stein 2020

Pastor Rich Stein received a Pentecostal born again salvation experience 39 years ago while assigned to Naval Station Mayport, Florida in 1981. His ministry has encompassed a multi-state area and from all forms of evangelism has witnessed hundreds of conversions.

Upon discharge from the navy, which included decorated service on-board the USS Midway stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, Pastor Stein attended and graduated from Bible College in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1985, attaining a ThB degree with honors in Apostolic Studies. Another degree in Business Administration (Magna Cum Laude) from the University of Northwestern followed in 1992.

Rev. Stein is also the co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Stein Consulting, LLC, a software automation provider to law firms since 1995, including those in the top 500. While assisting in a local church, he met his lovely wife Julie and they were married in 1992. He has 2 children, Austin (23) and Rebecca (24).

In 1994, Pastor Stein founded his first church in Arvada, Colorado and later started another work in Parker, Colorado in 2007. He has also overseen a daughter work congregation in Golden, Colorado. Feeling the unmistakable call of God to return to Jacksonville, Pastor Stein returned to the area in December 2016, and is now starting his third church-New Life Tabernacle of Jacksonville. The church serves the communities of Bartram Park, Bartram Springs, Fruit Cove, Mandarin & Nocatee in the south Jacksonville area.
