Meet the GNT Leadership Team

Marble Surface


Pastors Ray & Angela Goodson / founders of Good News Tabernacle

This barber-by-day and Pastor by God’s calling is not only cutting hair and cleaning up faces, he is wielding the Sword of  the Spirit and cutting down spiritual giants! No wonder our Pastor has been known to rock a superman cape a time or two. While he will humbly tell you that he has short-comings like the rest of us, GNT is proud to call this servant of Christ our Pastor, Ray Goodson. His entire life has been in and around church, and although he did struggle for a bit with his calling to preach, now-a-days there is no where else he would rather be than bringing forth the Gospel of the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Faithfully by his side in life and ministry is Pastor Angela Goodson. This mighty woman of God can sing an awesome hymn, cook an Instant Pot meal in a minute, and encourage a child of God with sound advice and Godly wisdom. She too spent most of her days in and around the fellowship and community of the church. That is why we know how very much GNT is blessed to have her working both on-the-scene and behind the scenes to keep this village running in tip-top shape.

These two have been married for 20+ years now. They were blessed with two amazing sons, Matthew and Dustin, who both serve in the GNT Platform Ministry. And now, they continue to see their family grow with two beautiful towheaded grandchildren that are ready to grab a microphone and get in on the worship too.

If you’re looking for down-to-earth, everyday folks to be your Pastor…. GNT is the Place to Be!

These men of God work together to provide spiritual support to the GNT family and wise counsel to our Pastor. As Pastor Ray prays to hear the mind of the Lord, he takes the vision he has received from the Lord and works with the Board to bring fulfillment to that vision.

Through much prayer and strategic planning, these men see the future of GNT and diligently seek to bring God’s purpose, plans, and will to life in the congregation. Our Board faithfully meets with the Pastor on a regular basis to discuss the needs of the church, address issues, and plan next steps for the growth and development of the church in all aspects. Serving on the church board is not a position of power or politics, rather it is a spiritual responsibility for which God has graciously equipped these gentlemen.

We are blessed to know that these men carry our church in their hearts at all times.

May we lovingly support them in prayer and supplication.

Seniors Anointed Linking Together

It is with great pleasure that we feature the daring duo that heads up the GNT Seniors Ministry.

                      Laquita Watson & Debbie Morrison.

More dedicated and loving ladies than these two you will never find. Laquita and Debbie are long time friends who are able to flow together in anointing and prayer. They seek to inspire and encourage our seniors, as well as bring fun and joy into every outing, event, and meeting. You can be sure that they are always on the lookout for the next great spot to visit.

Even more than all that, they are devoted and faithful to the service of our Lord and Savior, Jesus! Their steadfast and earnest love of God compels each of us to serve with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength. With these ladies at the helm, you can hardly wait to be old enough to join this awesome ministry! Actually, a few of us younger folks drop in from time to time just to hang out.

So, if you are 50 or older, please stop by and meet Laquita and Debbie. They will be glad to
include you in all of the great things going on in S.A.L.T.
