In 1988 Elder Huff accepted the call into ministry being licensed by the late Bishop C.L. Anderson Jr. of the Great Lakes Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church of God In Christ. He was ordained into the ministry in 1991 by Bishop Anderson.
In 1997 Elder Huff was called by the Lord to start his own ministry as the pastor of the Shekinah Tabernacle Gospel Church. The mission of the church reflects Pastor Huff’s experience and faith. The mission statement reads as follows: “To be effective Christians in the community as Disciples of Christ.”
Under Pastor Huff’s leadership and by the grace of God, STGC has prospered in its present location; however Pastor Huff believes that there is even more for the church to do in helping to make the community a better place for everyone. Currently the church is involved in a number of community efforts to improve the community, most notably the Skillman Foundation’s Neighborhood Initiative in the Cody/Rouge community area.
