Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church is a faith community of over 15,000 members committed to using their collective resources to strengthen families and communities. The first African-American Baptist church in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Enon’s impact is felt beyond the walls of its physical structures, spilling into the local community, throughout the city of Philadelphia, and reaching across the globe to Africa.
Under the leadership of its current Senior Pastor, Reverend Dr. Alyn E. Waller, Enon is proud to have contributed over $1 million to organizations, including the UNCF, which are meeting critical needs. In Dr. Waller’s words, “Enon is unapologetically youth oriented.” So elementary school students in Germantown seldom need to worry about being ready to start the school year because the church provides every student in need with a backpack full of school supplies annually.
Once Enon’s students are ready to pursue a postsecondary education, they have the opportunity to earn college scholarships, including a number of full four year scholarships. Enon’s commitment does not stop with the provision of financial resources. The church’s members serve others by participating in 98 ministries. For example, the church’s competitive athletics program provides a haven for roughly 600 young people. More than 100 volunteer coaches, mentors, and chaperones help the children develop life skills and provide activities, designed to insulate them from the negative and influences that plague urban youth. Notably, several of Enon’s football teams and cheerleading squad earned the opportunity to participate in the Disney Pop Warner 2012 National Championships in Orlando, Florida.
When a local high school’s library was in such disrepair that it could no longer serve students, Dr. Waller spearheaded a campaign to refurbish the library using the human capital of the church’s membership. Countless Enon members provide the community with a wide range of other free services, including tutoring, food and clothes distribution, counseling and transportation.
The church’s legal ministry host free legal clinics, its medical professionals sponsor health fairs, its financial ministry helps the community get their business affairs in order, and members enrich the lives of the elderly, the infirmed and the incarcerated by regularly visiting and encouraging those in nursing homes, hospitals and prisons.
