Recently, the Brazil resident became an ordained minister.
It may have taken eight years, but the 85-year-old accomplished it.
Tabor told The Brazil Times he and his second wife had wanted to start up their own church. However, after she passed away, that may have seemed impossible.
But he still pursued becoming a minister.
Tabor said he was baptized in 2001 and then began studying to become a minister.
"I've studied the Bible all my life," Tabor said. "This is something to be proud of. I finally made it."
Tabor was ordained by Bishop Mitchell Cheatham March 12. Cheatham is a Bishop at Haywood Memorial Church, Greencastle.
Now, Tabor said he plans on ministering where he can, pointing to three different area churches.
"Now, I really got to get to work," Tabor said.
