A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE ENCOUNTER GOD!
Reverend Dr. Alyn E. Waller, Senior Pastor
Ministry at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church
In July 1994, the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church called Dr. Waller to lead them as their Senior Pastor. God’s anointing on Dr. Waller’s pastorate has been evidenced with unprecedented spiritual and numerical growth. As a result of this growth, in July 2006, Enon became “one church in two locations.” Enon purchased 34 acres of land to construct a new church edifice, which includes a 5000-seat sanctuary, a chapel, a computer lab, a bookstore, dozens of classrooms and offices, and a Family Life Center for banquets, athletics and ministry events.
Today, Enon holds three weekend worship services, including live-streaming one service on the internet, to serve a congregation of over 15,000 members. In addition to worship, the Word of God and prayer are central to Enon’s ministry. Dr. Waller teaches two weekly Bible studies at Enon and the “Hour of Power” lunch hour Bible study in Center City Philadelphia. Prayer opportunities include two prayer meetings each day at the church locations and a daily, early morning prayer-line led by Dr. Waller and the Prayer Ministry team.
Dr. Waller draws on his love for people to shape God’s vision for Enon: “A Place Where People Encounter God.” With over 75 ministries that focus on discipleship, fellowship, missions & evangelism, and worship, Dr. Waller’s arms stretch wide to touch the needs of people who come to church and those who do not. Some of the innovative, impactful ministries that Dr. Waller has developed at Enon include Sexual Abuse Survivors, Domestic Abuse Survivors, and Cancer Survivors. Enon regularly hosts various health and wellness events which offer AIDS testing and other critical health screening.
Dr. Waller has a passion for the development of youth. Enon utilizes a majority of its land surrounding the church as a “big backyard” for the churches’ youth ministry to participate in various competitive teams, such as cheerleading, football, basketball, baseball, track and soccer. Additionally, among other youth-focused ministries, Dr. Waller provides direction to Enon’s Scholarship Ministry, which provides scholarships and stipends to dozens of students each year.
