Apostle Price

A visionary, a prolific author, and recently affirmed an Apostle of Faith, Frederick K.C. Price has influenced a generation of believers.

Apostle Price is the Founder of Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC) in Los Angeles, California.  He began CCC in 1973 and, since then, the church has grown to become a world-renowned ministry which boasts the prodigious FaithDome. Being one of the largest sanctuaries in the country, the FaithDome is a refuge of hope and an oasis of beauty in South Los Angeles with a congregation of about 22,000.

After more than 35 years of service, Apostle Price stepped aside as Head Pastor to formally install his son, Pastor Frederick K. Price Jr., as his successor.  He continues to serve at the helm as the Chairman of CCC’s Board of Directors.  Apostle Price not only ministers in the FaithDome, but travels the world, mostly in the United States, teaching the uncompromising Word of God.

Born on January 3, 1932 in Santa Monica, California, Apostle Price is the older of two sons of Winfred and Fred Price.  He has one sister, Dr. Delores W. Jones.

Apostle Price graduated from Dorsey High School and attended Los Angeles City College for two years. He received an honorary diploma from Rhema Bible Training Center in 1976 and a Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Oral Roberts University in 1982.

Apostle Price is believed to be the first African American minister to broadcast on television with his powerful “Ever Increasing Faith” program.  Today, “Ever Increasing Faith” reaches an estimated 15 million households each week, and airs in 15 of the 20 largest markets throughout the United States via “Ever Increasing Faith Television” (EIFTV). The ministry also hosts podcasts and publishes a quarterly magazine.

In 1990, Apostle Price founded the Fellowship of Inner City Word of Faith Ministries (FICWFM), now the Fellowship of International Christian Word of Faith Ministries… Members of FICWFM include churches from all over the United States and various countries. The Fellowship meets regionally throughout the year and hosts an annual convention here at the FaithDome.  Their mission is to provide standards of excellence in ministry.

In 2001, Apostle Price established an East Coast church – Crenshaw Christian Center East. The current membership is almost 1,000.  Apostle Price travels to New York regularly to teach the weekly Bible Study and Sunday service.

The author of about 50 books on faith, healing, prosperity, and the Holy Spirit, Apostle Price has sold over 2.1 million books since 1976.

A devout husband, Apostle Price has been married to his wife, Dr. Betty Price, since 1953. He is also the proud father of four children.

His children all assist Apostle Price in ministry. The eldest, Angela Evans, serves as the President and COO of CCC; his second, Cheryl Price, is the Executive Vice President; and the youngest, Stephanie Buchanan, is the Executive Administrator.  His son, Pastor Frederick Price Jr. is  the Pastor of CCC. In addition, Apostle Price and Dr. Betty have eight grandchildren:  Alan (married to Carrie Evans) and Adrian Evans; Nicole and Allen Crabbe; Tyler, Justin and Sidney Buchanan; and Frederick V and Gabriel Price. They have four great grandchildren, Kamari Stewart-Crowley; and Akira, Atreyu, and Anthony Evans.
