Meet Our Pastor


Jeremiah 3:15 states, “And I will give you pastors according to Mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

Todd A. Bertram was born and raised in Michigan until the age of 19, when he married Teri Walker.  They moved to Houston, Texas for a short time and then on to Sacramento, California for four years.  While in California, the Lord blessed him and his wife with a daughter, Amber and a son, Kyle.

After receiving his call to the ministry at the age of 25, he and his family moved back to Michigan and for the next 5 years he worked in the capacity of Music Minister and Youth Pastor.  In 1990 the Lord called him and his family to be full-time evangelists and they travelled for 5 years holding revivals across the country.

After pastoring a Home Missions church in Tampa, Florida for two years, in March of 1998, the Lord called him and his family to Bessemer, Alabama to pastor Faith Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church, which later became The Sanctuary Apostolic Church.

Since coming to Alabama, the Lord has added to the family a daughter-in-law, Stacey, and son-in-law, Timothy.  In 2009 he was blessed to become the proud “Poppy” of Rylan Kyle Bertram and Timothy Corrigan Hadden.
