Spiritual Leader, Church Builder, Traveling Evangelist. He was the founder of The Tabernacle Of Prayer For All People in Jamaica, New York. Starting from humble beginnings, preaching his first sermon at The St. Mary Church in Brooklyn, he went on to form his first church at a building in the Red Hook section of the city. After a few years Apostle Washington began a tent ministry and traveled with the gospel tent starting again in Brooklyn on the corner of Eastern Parkway and Hopkins Avenue. In the fall of 1977 a 3,500 plus seating capacity renovated building was completed for worship. This great edifice would often be packed for services as thousands would gather for the many assemblies and special services hosted by the senior pastor. From the backroads of the Mississippi Delta to New York, The Apostle made an impact in the religious field. The organization of many churches and ministries can be traced to the leadership and missions started by him. Spreading the message by way of radio and television was a mandate that he carried out reaching the faithful from coast to coast with daily broadcasts. Thousands of people and tens of thousands were prayed for and saved under the leadership of the man with a heart of gold and a love for God's people. He was a great teacher as well as a great singer and could bring the house down with the sounds of gospel tunes. Many of his songs and sermons are still heard today as he remains a popular figure in the field of religion. After a brief illness the "Man After God's Own Heart" passed away in 1986, leaving a road map for others to follow and complete the work that he started.
