The couple is also a parent to four adorable children, two daughters, and two sons. Their eldest daughter is already a sixteen-year-old teenager.


Tate completed his schooling at one of the local high schools in his hometown.

After high school, he joined Wesley Bible College for his undergraduate degree.

Once he completed his studies at the Wesley, he took some time off but returned to school to get his higher degree at Fuller Theological Seminary.


Tate started walking in the path of god at just twenty-one.

He first began at the Sweet Home Church and worked there for a few years.

He then moved to Pasadena with his family to join the Lake Avenue Church as a youth pastor.

In Pasadena, he was gradually promoted to senior youth pastor and made his way to intergenerational pastor after getting promoted to Sunday night service pastor.

By the time Tate had become an intergenerational pastor, he had gathered all the experience to start a church of his own.

So, with the support of his wife, the enthusiastic pastor moved to Los Angeles and founded the Fellowship Church.

Though his church was new, he did not have a problem reaching the local community. His wise words with abundant humor soon made him an equally influential pastor in Los Angeles as he was in Pasadena.

Additionally, Albert holds the position of teaching pastor at Willow Creek Church.

He is also involved in the advisory council of the Fuller Youth Institute.

Along with running services at the church, Tate broadened his horizon of spreading the word of god by writing books and hosting shows.

He is the mind behind the bestselling book How We Love Matters. He also hosts The Preaching Masterclass along with the Albert Tate Podcast and Good News Today, a morning devotional show that started during the start of COVID-19.

However, Tate was not satisfied with only these, so he even became part of the Azusa Pacific University as a member of the board of trustees.

He even joined other organizations like Global Church Planting Organization, Global Leadership Network, etc., to reach more people and help establish Churches across the globe.

On the side, he also founded The Greatest Story, Inc. and still runs it as its CEO. He also looks after Harambee Ministries as its president.

Tate is one of the prominent names within the Christian community of the USA and is also a great public speaker.

He is also a co-catalyst for the LA Church Planting Movement which aims to plant on gospel-centered church in every single neighborhood in Los Angeles.

He has traveled across the USA and out of the USA in countries like China, South Africa, Ecuador, Thailand, etc., preaching the word of Jesus Christ.

Allegations, Inappropriate Text Messaging, One-Month Long Leave, and Apology

Tate stayed on a one-month-long leave and then gave an apology speech at California Megachurch, Fellowship Monrovia in November 2023.

In 2022, his wife caught him engaging in inappropriate text messaging. He emphasized that his wife and one of his sons have forgiven him for his misconduct.

He was also alleged to have been involved in financial fraud and sexual harassment in the church.

He also confessed that Fellowship Monrovia Church was hard on its staff and members. During his one-month leave, an allegation letter circulated and a few pastors resigned and left the church.
