Our Leaders.


Reverend Doctor Ricardo Pacheco and Lic. Min. Marilyn Pacheco.

Under the senior leadership of Pastors Ricardo and Marilyn Pacheco, Tabernacle of Christ Church has grown to be a loving and welcoming congregation that seeks the move of the Holy Spirit. Pastors Ricardo and Marilyn are both anointed speakers and loving pastors. They minister together, providing simultaneous translation from Spanish to English. Pastor Pacheco is an excellent Bible Teacher and Historian, and Pastor Marilyn is an anointed worshiper. Their desire is to share the Love of Jesus Christ with all who walk through the doors of our church. As Assemblies of God Ministers, they seek to evangelize the lost, worship God, disciple believers and show compassion. As senior Pastors of TOC, Pastors Pacheco have worked hand-in-hand with the church leadership in providing programming that meets the needs of all our TOC family, from the very youngest to the very oldest.


Richard and Gisela Mercado

We have been working in Ministry in some capacity for the last 12 years. Whether working as Youth Pastors, Sunday school teachers, or our present role as Co-Pastors, we strive to abide by Colossians 3:23 ”And whatever you do, do it with all your heart, as to the Lord and not to men.”  The Lord has given us the privilege of working with our Senior Pastors, Ricardo and Marilyn Pacheco, here at Tabernacle of Christ where we have been attending since 2004 with our three daughters. It has also pleased The Lord to use both Gisela and myself as Bible Institute instructors allowing us to pour into others what He has poured into us. We look forward to serving the great community of Beacon in any way we can as we grow together in fellowship with Christ centered values.
