W. J. Dawson was prophesied to years ago that one day he would
preach Gods word. He told the prophet that prophesied to him that
he would never preach. Although God had spoken to him at the time
of his mother's death at the age of nine years old, he fought
at every turn to keep the thought of preaching out of his mind.
years passed but every time the subject of preaching Gods word
would come up, he would change the subject. However, he would
always be at the forefront of the civil rights movement in his
home town of Swainsboro, Georgia speaking against injustices and

of life. He refused to obey God and found himself at a dead end
with no where to go. God heard his prayer and delivered him, but
still he refused to answer the call to preach. After so many ups
and downs and running from the call to preach, God spoke to W.
J. Dawson about "Beyond The Walls Ministry".
W. J. Dawson
answered the call and became a street minister in his old childhood
neighborhood in Swainsboro, Georgia. and he walked the streets
and told the good news about Jesus Christ, the answer to all our
problems. He did this for three years and revamped a run down
where he grew up as a young boy. He later became pastor of Solomon
Tabernacle of Vidalia, Georgia, where he served as pastor for
four years. As a result of humbling himself, seeking God's face,
turning from his wicked ways, God spoke to him from heaven and
he answered the call once again and founded The Tabernacle of
Praise Church located in Wadley, Georgia. The church held dedication
services on February 4, 2007. God has blessed Tabernacle of Praise
and God is moving in such an awesome way in W. J. Dawson Ministries.
