Hello Tab Family!


To say that the times we are living in are unprecedented is truly an understatement. They are, but the spirit of the age would be quite familiar to previous generations. From the struggles of ancient Israel to the martyrdom in the early church, the aligning of church and politics in Roman culture, the times of geo-political and religious wars, and the rise evil dictatorships and communism; the spirit of depravity, bondage, deception, lies, and false sense of moral superiority has attempted to blot out the influence of the kingdom of God on the earth. So while this day is unprecedented in our generation and nation, it is the same evil source at work.


How do we live as a supernatural kingdom people in the midst of such a clash of the two kingdoms?


The third chapter of Colossians unlocks a series of 25 guideposts for Kingdom Living that are as empowering for us today as they were in every generation since the Apostle Paul defined them in his epistle in about 62 c.e.


Picture Paul imprisoned in Rome. Epaphras arrives to bring news from the church in Colosse that a growing gnostic heresy was taking root in the church, being influenced by the culture of the day. His letter challenges the believers in Colosse to look solely to the divinity of Jesus Christ, it is through Him that we are all saved. Paul refutes the gnostic heresy by affirming that cannot achieve salvation through their own works, ideas, or successes; blending Christianity by adding to it ideas or philosophies from other sources is dangerous to Paul, so he focuses in on the absolute truth of Christianity. This letter could not possibly be more pertinent to the church today, even if it was written in 2021.


Beginning with the premise of our life being raised in Christ and concluding with our lives becoming praise to Him, Colossians lays out these 25 guideposts for Kingdom living in such a way that we are empowered to stand as supernatural Kingdom people amidst a completely contrary culture.


Some of these guideposts have been a major source of life to me such as:

• Set your minds on the heavenly realm (be heavenly minded) - on things of eternal value, not temporary nonsense (vs 2)

• Guard what’s in your heart and be careful what it produces on your lips (vs 8)

• Clothe yourself in Him & in your new DNA (vs 10)

• Let His presence remake you (vs 10)

• Grow in more complete, personal knowledge of Him (vs 10)

• Enfold yourselves in Unity with others (vs 14)

• Let Christ’s peace (he exerted over the waters) govern your life...your heart & mind (vs 15)

• Sing to one another the song of grace from your heart to God (vs 16)


Colossians 3 is a well-spring of life to us in this historical moment. Let us arise together as kingdom people who know where we are truly seated, and live from that supernatural place as ambassadors of heaven on earth.

Dear Tabernacle Family,


It’s an exciting season for our Next-Generation Ministries here at The Tabernacle. It is a privilege to help lead the exciting initiatives that are being birthed right here in this house. For those of you that remember, we had the Kairos School of Ministry in recent years. I am excited to share that this leadership training experience is returning as an all new program and experience. If you are a young adult, or know one, who wants to say “yes" to answering the call of leading a generation to the Glory of the Lord, this new program is for you!


We are an innovative young adult leadership experience. Where we serve to lead, grow to transform, and go to the world. We grow through the environments of Sessions, Experience, Tribe and Leadership. We offer a program that is 2 days a week for 18 weeks, based right here at The Tabernacle.


SESSIONS are at the heart of KSOM. Sessions include Bible Classes, Prophetic Classes, Life Transformation Classes, Legacy Classes, Coaching and more.


EXPERIENCE is all action at KSOM. Whether you are called to shifting an atmosphere through prayer, being a messenger of the Gospel to wherever your mission field may be, carrying a worship experience, or reaching and serving your local community you’ll find the equipping for it at KSOM.

TRIBE is the essence of who we are at KSOM. We believe that living life together is a powerful principle. This happens through Relationships, Mentoring and Coaching, Finding Freedom to Belong, and simply put - having fun together.


LEADERSHIP is the core of KSOM. We believe through Team Leading, Understanding the Power of Unity, Developing Communication, Learning Organization, and using Strategic Planning we are able to become strong leaders to our generation and having a lasting impact on those we are called to lead.


For more information, please call the church office or visit us online at www.ksombuffalo.com. We are now enrolling for our spring semester starting this month.

Praying and believing for this generation,


Michael Wulf

Dear Tabernacle Family,


Welcome to 2021! The new year of the Olympics. The year the Bills go to the playoffs with new strength. The possibilities are endless for what 2021 will bring. After the uncertainty of this past year, the future seems to be opening again and I sense a great expectation of WHAT GOD WILL DO.


As I reflect on 2020, this past year has brought time together with my children that would have never occurred without a pandemic.

The daycare reached low attendances of one on some days and yet God provided a way to stay open and ready to serve essential workers. In staying open, we received blessings that would never have come our way otherwise and made us better.

Our ministry at the daycare has involved families in crisis and we were able to minister and pray for so many.

My family faced health crises that were non-COVID related but were difficult to navigate due to the COVID pause. We have weathered these crises and are so much better for it.

All around me, friends and loved ones from around the world have faced the uncertainty of COVID. Some have survived and, sadly, some have not. I am grateful for God’s miracles and protection as my husband and I have served alongside so many others at the front line of this pandemic.

For all this, WE ARE GRATEFUL.


God is our provider.

God is our defender.

God is our help.

God is our strength.

God is our rock.

As we wait out the storm and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit, we will know when to move and when to stay; when to speak and when to stay silent. We will be in sync with the Holy Spirit and He will direct our paths.


I am believing for a greater sense of God’s leading in 2021!

Please join me in expectation of WHAT GOD WILL DO!!
