Dr. Mary A. Tumpkin: A woman of substance and grace

The Rev. Dr. Mary A. Tumpkin, 64, was a beloved pastor and longtime community leader who started her church in her own living room. As her membership grew, she moved to several funeral homes and hotels before settling in Miami Gardens in the church’s 22,000 square-foot home.
