Apostle Frederick Price - Founder

Dr. Frederick K.C. Price is one of Southern California’s most influential church and societal pioneers. He is a man of immense integrity, stability, knowledge, understanding and great faith. He and his wife, Dr. Betty Price, have been leading the way with the powerful message of faith for several decades. In 1973 Dr. Price and 300 parishioners moved from West Washington to establish Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC) in Inglewood, CA . In 1984 CCC outgrew its Inglewood facility and purchased the former Pepperdine University, Los Angeles campus. CCC is now the home of the FaithDome, being one of the largest church ‘sanctuaries’ in the United States. Currently, the church membership totals over 22,000. In addition, in 1990, Dr. Price founded the Fellowship of International Christian Word of Faith Ministries (FICWFM). Members of FICWFM include churches from all over the United States and various countries. The Fellowship, which meets regionally throughout the year and hosts an annual convention, is not a denomination. Their mission is to provide fellowship, leadership, guidance and a spiritual covering for those desiring a standard of excellence in ministry. They share methods and experiences commonly faced by ministries. Their focus is how to apply the 'Word of Faith' to solve their challenges.

Dr. Price's most recent endeavors are the establishment of an East Coast church in Manhattan, New York. The New York church, Crenshaw Christian Center East, opened on May 21, 2001. The current membership is almost 1,000. Crenshaw Christian Center has an established preschool, elementary, middle, and high school. People all over the world know of his media ministry. The Ever Increasing Faith Ministries television program reaches more than 15 million households each week and airs in 15 of the 20 largest markets throughout the United States according to recent Nielson ratings. Dr. Price is the author of some 50 books on faith, healing, prosperity, and the Holy Spirit. "How Faith Works" is a classic book on the operation of faith and its life-changing principles. He has sold over 2.1 million books since 1976.

Dr. Price is one of the most highly regarded teachers of faith and excellence in ministry. He continues to teach faith at many conferences around the country and worldwide. Despite his many endeavors, Dr. Price remains a humble servant of God; placing strong importance on family and fellowship. Currently as an apostle of God he provides oversight to many churches throughout the United States as well as maintaining a covering for Crenshaw Christian Center and Pastor Fred Price Jr.
