Drive-In Service – 8:15 a.m.
The Drive-In service is unique in the Tampa area. Begun in 1972 it has provided a weekly worship service with only a very few weather exceptions. The service is broadcast over your car or portable radio on 103.9 FM and 88.7 FM. The service follows a standard worship service format of praise time, pre-packaged communion, offering, sermon and invitation. A stationary boat called the DiscipleShip is used by the Praise Team and ministers as a stage and pulpit. You stay in your vehicle.
Drive-In Celebrates 50th Anniversary on Sunday, December 4, 2022!
In 1972, at the suggestion of senior minister, Rev. Dean Burton, the church bought the land and used it to create a drive-in ministry. A neighbor donated a salvaged boat for use as the pulpit. Burton preached the first sermon from “Noah’s Ark” December 3, 1972. At that time, a pole and sound system, like those at drive-in movies, was used so that attendees in their cars could hear the service. In 1988, worshipers began tuning into a radio frequency for the church service when a new underground broadcasting system was installed and the ark replaced with the current building designed to look like a boat. This building was named the “DiscipleShip”, which is in use today. Below are pictures from “today” and “yesterday”.
