Home About our Staff About Pastor Taber

Pastor Taber  My wife, Jeannine and I, moved to Morganton in April, 1976 shortly after we were married. We immediately became involved in the community. During our first few years here, our three daughters were born - Melanie and twins, Jennifer and Stephanie. I have been involved in just about every area of Burke County - serving as an on-call chaplain of Grace Hospital, actively involved in the Morganton Area Ministerial Association, community services, a speaker at Grace Ridge Chapel, and singing at the first 9/11 memorial service at the Comma (as well as the 1st Anniversary). In October 1976, I began daily Radio Thots on WMNC 1430 and FM 92.1. I thank God for the thousands of folk I have been blessed to reach over the years!


I feel like I still have many years of ministry as I let God lead me in the future. As we have been led of God to begin this new ministry, it is both exciting and challenging. But we believe God has something special for us. We chose to be called “Blessed Hope Fellowship” based on Titus 2:13, “Looking for that blessed Hope and the soon appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ”
