Pastor Fred Price Jr. Steps Down

Eight years after being installed as Senior Pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center by his father Apostle Frederick K.C. Price, Fred Price Jr, has officially stepped down as pastor of one of the city’s largest congregations.

“I have struggled with serious personal misjudgments which have affected my life and my family, therefore I’m going to step down as pastor and submit myself to the father’s and the apostle’s plan of restoration,” he told the congregation of more than 10,000 members with wife Angel at his side.
Both the local and national Christian community were stunned by the announcement. Church officials have not released any statements to the press about Price’s stepping down nor a change in leadership. But the question of who will take the reins of L.A.’s first mega church was answered by Crenshaw Christian Center CEO Angela Evans. 
After the emotionally-charged announcement, Evans addressed the transition.
“I thought I should let you know that Apostle (Frederick K.C. Price), as the founder of this ministry and the overseer, will be the primary teacher and preacher while pastor is away. But until he is 100% healthy….it will be a matter of time. The mother of our ministry, Mrs. Apostle [Dr. Betty Price] said she would be sharing with us. The ministerial staff will continue to support them as they have the pastor. Bible studies, mid-week services and all of the activities will go forward as usual.”
