Dr. Cecil Sturgill


On Wednesday, July 4, 1970, Pastor Sturgill, preached his first message as Pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church. He became the third Pastor of TBC. He has seen the church grow and touch lives around the world. Under his leadership TBC supports over a hundred missionaries, Lighthouse Youth Camp, and Tri-City Camp Meeting. He can be heard on the radio stations: WMCH 1260 @ 9:30am every Saturday and WIGN 1500 every Sunday @ 9:30am. Pastor Sturgill is an old-fashioned Bible preacher, an active man with the old yet still relevant message of the Gospel of Christ. He has been married to Betty Arnold since 1959. He is eager to be a blessing to you and your family.
