The Sanctuary is a very unique place. It was birthed out of Pastor Yolanda in 2011 at a time when all she felt was pain and in need of a place of refuge to gain real truth, wisdom, and knowledge. And the same truth, wisdom, and knowledge that freed her are freely given in a very exceptional way. The Sanctuary has met in fellowship virtually since 2011. Pastor Yolanda was on the cutting edge of worship. She had the vision to bring believers to worship in Spirit and Truth virtually well before it was popular. To join her in the Virtual Tabernacle all you needed was a computer, phone, or mobile device to meet with us virtually via our website or social media.  Pastor Yolanda and covenant partners globally and locally have met in the Virtual Tabernacle to fellowship, grow, and learn since 2011. And she is still in position today, teaching and prophetically preaching God's Word with passion and zeal. Any place at any time can be your refuge. You can join thru your desktop, tablet, or phone. You can also listen to a teaching from Pastor Yolanda on our YouTube Channel. When you enter The Tabernacle you’ll be able to interact with Elder Monte, Pastor Yolanda, and covenant partners from around the country via video or phone. It’s easy and convenient but most importantly it’s uplifting and inspiring and it gives life, abundantly. Enter into The Virtual Tabernacle during one of our scheduled worship services for an interactive experience thru your computer, or mobile device (phone, tablet, or iPad).
We promise you will leave The Sanctuary empowered, equipped, and knowing how to worship in Spirit and Truth.

The Sanctuary is often referred to The Refuge. It is the place many turn to when life becomes a little overwhelming. These doors are never locked. It is a place of refuge that is always stocked with the Living Bread. It is a sufficient refuge that seeks to see and meet the needs of those suffering, hopeless, grieving and lost. The Sanctuary is Your Place of Refuge.

She built the first Virtual Church on the ClickMeeting Application and she is still holding Bible Study and Worship from this virtual space.

Sow Your Seed into The Sanctuary, It's Good Ground.

A freewill offering is an offering that is your choice—you decide what to give. Your freewill offerings should not be done under manipulation or coercion, it should be done to reflect your love for God. So as you sow, get a revelation of how much God has blessed you, how much He wants to bless you, and how much He has promised to bless you, and then you decide how to joyfully give back to help His Kingdom advance. Your sowing will reap a harvest and help advance the Good News on the earth!
If you are led to sow into this soil, know that this soil is conducive to yielding a harvest as this is good ground.

Discover More About Us

Yolanda Douthit founded “The Sanctuary” in 2008 after the passing of her beloved father, Rev. Marvin N. Kelty, and her aunt, Pastor Barbara J. Cameron. After their untimely passing four months apart, she was distraught with grief and was empty; seeking direction and healing as they both were very influential forces in her life.  She was a member of a local church, but it was not providing the salve to heal her wounded soul. She desperately sought out a place where she could find comfort and relief from the pain of her loss. And although she was raised in the church and was a PK, “preacher’s kid”, the traditional church setting was not what was required to heal her heart. She desired something different to reach her weary and dying soul.
