The Joplin Globe


Pat Yarbrough, born March 15, 1928, passed away Jan. 14, 2013. He was a loving father, wonderful grandfather, amazing leader and friend that left behind a legacy.

Pat was the Pastor of Faith Tabernacle, which he established in Riverside, Calif., in 1971. He was a Pastor and general contractor. Pat moved to Joplin, Mo. in 1977, and has pastored at Faith Tabernacle until his passing. The lives that he has touched are countless. His work that he established through his life will carry on. There is no better example that we know, of a man who has lived his life through Christ. He will be greatly missed and never replaced.
