YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
We want to help you become the person God made you to be. No matter where you are in your faith journey, you are welcome! Following Jesus for as long as you can remember? That’s wonderful! Not even sure about the idea of God? No problem! Wherever you are in your faith journey, you’re invited to discover your purpose and live it out as a part of the Fearless Family.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that Jesus is the only Son of God and through Him, we find what we need to be made right with God. We know that some may have been following Jesus longer than others and accept everyone from all walks of life. We belive that the more you are in godly, Christ-centered community, the more you will love, live, and look like Jesus. For more information about what we believe click here.
WHO WE ARE
We are not a gathering place. We are a community of young people that are taking our next step towards God. We are friends like family. We are students 6th-12th grade from all over Sarasota, Bradenton and some of us even further than that. We are not perfect but are trying everyday to love, live, and look more like Jesus everyday.
WHEN WE GATHER
We gather at different times and locations across the region just to do life together and create a godly community. Our main gathering on Wednesdays 7-8:30 pm features worship, games, and messages designed for students in middle school and high school.
FEARLESS ON WEDNESDAYS
Every Wednesday night at 7:00pm, 6th-12th graders meet up for Fearless at The Tabernacle Church. We love great music, spending time with friends, and discovering new ways to make life better, so we do that every week.
We choose to be the Church. We don’t sit back and watch. You’ve got gifts, and we’ll give you the opportunity to use them! Every weekend, Fearless students volunteer together at The Tab—and there’s a spot for you.
We have a small group gathering at 9 am in the Family Life Center. This gathering called “Sunday School” isn’t like the school you’re thinking. This is a place you can make your voice heard as we dig a little deeper in a very conversational environment.
FEARLESS AROUND TOWN
The Church is not a building, its a people! We gather all over the region for basically anything we can think of to get the Fearless Family together. House Parties hosted by leaders and parents, beach days, or even hitting up some theme parks. Anywhere we gather is where the Church is.
VIDEO ON DEMAND
Fearless worship gatherings don’t just happen and it’s over. It’s an every day thing. Whether you’re here Wednesday night or not, you’re a part of this family.

PASTOR JOSH & DEANNA
Josh and Deanna Holly are high school sweethearts. They said “I do” in 2012 and together have two amazing children, Evalyn Grace and Micah Aaron.
Josh is an Obstacle Course Race enthusiast and ambitious pastor with over a decade of high-level leadership experience in ministry. Pastor Josh is a graduate of Southeastern University and is a credentialed minister of the Assemblies of God.
Deanna is an education graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University. Having a contagious passion for youth and worship ministry, she left the classroom to be more involved in ministry and start her own photography company. She says nothing can beat worship and a good cup of coffee.
The main Fearless gathering features worship, games, and messages designed for students in middle school and high school. many nights ends with small-group time led by a trained, background-checked volunteer.
Worship Service: Students can apply and serve in PowerHouse Kids, Media, or on the Host Team on weekends. Additionally we believe it is vital to the spiritual health of students that they worship side by side with other generations on Sunday mornings. Students are encouraged to join the rest of the Tabernacle family Sunday’s at 10:15 for the Tabernacle’s worship gathering.
Sunday School:We have a small group gathering at 9 am in the Family Life Center. This gathering called “Sunday School” isn’t like the school you’re thinking of. This is a place you can make your voice heard as we dig a little deeper in a very conversational environment.
We know the Church is more than a building and a single gathering. Fearless messages are available anytime on YouTube, on our website, and in the Fearless app.
We love spending time connecting with your students! We always strive to keep our physical and digital spaces safe, and we’d love to share more with you about how we make it happen. In addition to reaching out the youth pastor, you can also sign up to volunteer within the Fearless Youth department.
Several times throughout the year we publish a Fearless Newsletter. This is a great resource to view some of our upcoming events, be encouraged as a parent, and stay in the loop about what topics we will be discussing during our Fearless gatherings.
Here you will find links to upcoming events that require registration.
We desire to partner with parents in the discipleship of students. We recognize that the influence of the home will be greater than the influence of a single worship gathering.
Here you will find links to resources we have curated to help you in the journey and process of teaching your youth to love, live, and look more like Jesus everyday.
