Our Pastor

Pastor Bulgrin, who is called by God to lead our church family, is foremost a Christian living by example. Before coming to Tallmadge, he served as Youth Pastor in Massillon and Ohio District Youth President for the United Pentecostal Church.
In 1998, Rev. Ken Bulgrin and his wife, Kimberly, became pastor of FACTALLMADGE. For 20 years, the Bulgrins have served our community and church family. Pastor Bulgrin’s vision is for the blessings of God to be poured out upon Tallmadge and the surrounding communities. Ministry is his passion, and he desires to reach the world with this Gospel. The First Apostolic Church is honored and blessed to have him and his family lead our assembly.

Our History

In 1931, the First Apostolic Church began in a tent meeting on Bank St. in Akron, OH. From there, the church moved multiple locations in Akron as the congregation grew; and in 1969, under the leadership of Pastor Frank Poling, we became FACTALLMADGE holding our first service in our current location.
Recently, in 2016, we broke ground yet again to expand at 199 South Ave. Under the current leadership of Pastor Ken Bulgrin, prepared our new building with a vision and desire to serve more people of the community. We officially celebrated the opening of our new building in 2018.
