Our History

Founded in 1918 by the late Bishop G.B. Rowe, Apostolic Temple Church (formerly known as Midway Gospel Tabernacle) has a rich history spanning more than a century. Thousands have been saved and touched by this ministry.
In celebration of our 100th year of ministry in 2018, we created a video series looking back at the past 100 years, and are excited to share those with you here. Enjoy!


Our Leadership

Ordained in 2011, PASTOR CHRIS ROWE and his wife Cortenay are working together to move Apostolic Temple Church forward. When they began pastoring the church, the Lord impressed on Pastor Chris’ heart a simple phrase: Dare to Dream.

Dare to Dream means having the courage to pursue the ministry and dream that God has placed on your heart. We believe that doing so will enlarge the borders of the church and help us collectively meet the needs of our society. Growing diverse ministries with Jesus Christ at the heart will help us reach our families, neighbors, co-workers, friends, and everyone we contact.

1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

Now, as we enter Year 101 of ministry, our leadership team is hoping you will join us as we move forward into the future.
