Why Is Young Pastor Fred Price Jr.On A Ministry Sabbatical So Soon???


Reader, after only being two years at the helm of one of the nation’s first Black mega-churches, it's rumored on social media that Fred Price Jr. has stepped aside from the ministries for reasons unknown. A pastor sabbaticals are great and much needed I believe but you don't hear about people's going on them these days.

Update: Frederick K. Price III ended his three-month sabbatical by stepping down as pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center after struggling with "personal misjudgments.

  1. My thoughts exactly.

    He recently became the leader of the "FAMILY BUSINESS", and he needs a sabbatical already?

    What did he do?!?!

    1. He probably did nothing.... It was probably what was being done to him

    2. Cop you are on point. You can't have a "Ministry" just given to a family member like an antique car.The one receiving it never appreciates it's value. It's a bad sign of the times.Too many "Ministers" doing it for the fame and fortune.

    3. I don't care what anybody say, if more pastors were like this, their would be more folks in the church. people want to see transparency from our leadership.... praying for the Price Family! for full restoration!

    4. I knew the minute he started preaching about racism, the illuminati, police brutality, and BLM, he would have a huge target on his back. Each time I'd watch him preach, I'd pray for his protection because I knew there's no way a pastor(black) would be allowed to get away with exposing the system. I knew "they" would eventually come for him. I'm really surprised he lasted this long. We need to pray for this young man. May God keep him in the safety and comfort of His arms.

    5. Transparency would be to admit a sin, not to admit that you sinned. Keep drinking the coo-aid and pay your tithes...im sure they will appreciate your earnings to sponsor his next vacation.

    6. I am PRAYING FOR PASTOR FRED PRICE JR. He went hard, PREACHED "THE TRUTH" & THAT IS THE ISSUE MOST LIKELY. He needs his OWN SPACE as he is IN THE SPIRIT OF DAVID vs. King Saul & Goliath HAVE COME TOGETHER TO SILENCE HIM. He is dealing with JEALOUSY, HATERS & SYSTEMS.
      ROMANS 3:23 - FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD! But he WAS & IS BOLD & IS GOD'S MAN FOR THESE LAST DAYS! I AM PRAYING THAT HE OBEYS GOD 👑 Rather than TRADITION! PRAYING FOR HIS NEWNESS & HIS RENEWAL & COMEBACK SOON! LUKE 1:37 & JOHN 11:22

  2. Aww, what did he do???

    Either money or women.

    His family has to much money to be stealing, and judging by the wife's facial expression I am going with another woman.

    Don't expect him to go to far, this is the FAMILY BUSINESS. So he will be back in some form leading the church.

    1. Cop I just saw the video and the wife aint to happy. I'm going with he has been caught cheating. I read that Pastor Price and Betty will be taking over the church once again.

      Delete
    2. I alway feel bad for the women married to the cheating pastor (if that's what this is).

      The one man that SHOULD HAVE more reasons to stay faithful to his wife
      Because his character is related to the integrity of his position as pastor,
      He is a role model for another young single & married people,
      this is job puts food on the table and allows him to live the fabulous life,
      AND HIS LOVE AND/OR FEAR OF THE LORD should all keep him true to his marriage.

      But like so many pastors before him with no true accountability (causes its your daddy's church) they get cocky, greedy, and sloppy.

      So move over Jamal (baby maker) Bryant, and Charles (butt naked) Jenkins, Fred (short timer) Price may have joined the club.

    3. I agree, his wife doesn't look happy

    4. At least the fellow has some amount integrity, by stepping down, and not be arrogant. The Bible says restore such a one gently. Take it easy people.

    5. Sounds like he cheated on his wife.

      Ms. Ann I think that it's nice to see he removed himself, that I respect. Too many get into trouble, don't fully step down long enough to be restored. I pray they are restored as a family. The Bible is full of people who did wrong and God rose them up out of the ashes!

      Delete
    7. I'm a member of the church and I must say I don't believe he cheated. The pastor's wife, Angel, ALWAYS looks like that. She has had that demeanor for as long as I've been with the church so there is nothing you can take away from the situation by just looking at the wife. However, I do believe that what he did was something that some members or "church folk" do every weekend. LOL So stop being judgmental of him. He did the right thing in repenting. God has him covered.

      Delete
    8. Anonymous, I don't even know his wife, but I did NOT get " he cheated" from her facial expression. As you stated, that's just her demeanor. If you look closely, she's actually rubbing his back and encouraging him as he reads his statement. I don't think it had anything to do with cheating. I think it's internal conflict, a difference of theology and doctrine. I believe he and dad have been at odds for quite some time and it all came to a head. I believe daddy made him step down. That's just what I think but since you are a member you probably know the truth. I'll continue to pray for FPJ and CCC.

  3. This is exactly what Eddie Long needed to do years ago along with so many others. I'll say, at least this brother was "man enough" to stand before the people and do this.

    1. I will agree standing there admitting he let his family down, and then resigning is something VERY FEW pastors would ever do.

    2. Haha Timezone now you know that Eddie couldn't have done this because of his pride. This young man had enough integrity to acknowledge his weakness and to step down to be restored. This is rare in the church, so I thank God that he will be still attending his church and listening and meditating on Gods Word.

    3. This is a church I would attend because of the honesty and leadership..No hypocrisy.Lead by example.I wish the pastor of my church when I was a child had done what he has and that's an apology for what ever wrong he has done.Back then they covered it up and denied everything.I commen this young man the almighty God is guiding his footsteps.

  4. AT LEAST HE WAS HUMBLE ENOUGH TO STEP DOWN. EVEN THOUGH HE WAS RAISED WITH A SILVER SPOON IN HIS MOUTH. HE MIGHT NOT TRULY HAVE BEEN CHOSEN BY GOD TO BE A MINISTER LET ALONE A PASTOR . JUST BECAUSE HIS FATHER STARTED THE MINISTRY DOESN'T MEAN THAT HE WAS ORDAINED BY GOD. THE PRESSURES COULD HAVE JUST GOT TO HIM AND HE COULDN'T HANDLE IT. SOME ARE CALLED SOME ARE CHOSEN SOME CALLED THEMSELVES. THE WIFE JUST COULDN'T BE HAPPY ALSO WITH HAVING TO KEEP UP A LIE. BEING A DAUGHTER IN LAW OF A PASTOR IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN BEING A WIFE OF A PASTOR. THE WHOLE FAMILY AND THERE MINISTRY NEEDS OUR PRAYERS. IF 98% OF THESE SO CALLED PREACHERS, BISHOPS, EVANGELISTS ,PASTORS WOULD GET SAVED AND DELIVERED AND HOLY GHOST FILLED. THE WORLD WOULD BE BETTER. OR IF THEY JUST STOP LYING AND PLAYING GAMES WITH ALL THE FOOLISHNESS AND DRAMA. WHILE FOLKS ARE GOING TO HELL.STOP PREACHING ALL TOGETHER AND JUST GET SAVED AND DELIVERED AND SET FREE AND FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST. AND GET THEMSELVES UNDER A GOOD MINISTRY TO GET THE RIGHT TEACHING AND PREACHING THAT THEY NEED. TO LIVE A HOLINESS LIFESTYLE THAT'S PLEASINGLY TO GOD.

  5. Bishop Charles E.Blake is going to have a problem when he retires. Neither of his two sons can preach or teach. He's not that great either. His wife LadyMae L.Blake can out preach all of them. Its sad when churches are now run like businesses. The pastor is in charge and his family and they are the ones that make all of the decisions. Yet they are living off the tithes and offerings of the people's. God never ever intended for the Church to be run the way these folks are doing. It's all about the money, prestige, lifestyle, vehicles, mansions and every buisness that they can get in there name and 501 3 (c)

  6. Ann I can't believe he is planning to stay there. That will be a dividing and distracting thing to the congregation. Usually when a pastor resigns/retires, they stay away for a while. He should go somewhere else for a while, and get help for his problems.

  7. Apostle Price and Betty Price raised him right, at least he was man enough to stand there and talk to the congregation. I can respect that.

  8. I really don't know why, but it a little stunning. He had some good teachings. The family is asking for prayer and he's still attending...

  9. 3 month? Should be indefinite. Stepping down for what? Adultery? Porn Addiction? Why not be totally honest, and tell all, as opposed to leaving the "saints" hanging? There is a dead cat on the line.

    It's been rumored his dad had problems with adultery. Even the cry of the audience for him to "STAY" is ridiculous! This church built by his dad and the many lies he teaches his congregation, most recently, JESUS COMMITTED SUICIDE.

    Despite the drama surrounding his son now, I know many pastors and ministers, who though not perfect, but are pure. The LORD has many true ministers representing Him.

  11. To Anonymous ... "It's been rumored his dad had problems with adultery ... This church built by his dad and the many lies he teaches his congregation, most recently, JESUS COMMITTED SUICIDE." Rumors are just that rumors, no truth in them whatsoever. His father taught and still teaches the Word of God and the church, the Faith Dome, was built by faith in God, through the Word of God. In the bible, Jesus said, "I lay down My life for the sheep. ...No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself." (John 10:15-18) That's what his father was referring to. Stop listening to and spreading rumors, better yet, read the bible so you'll know the truth. No judgement ... just observation.

    1. And here's a lesson for you Ms. Brown. THERE ARE, AT TIMES, TRUTH TO SOME RUMORS! As Fred Price claims to be an "apostle", I'm guessing as an apostle, he's elevated higher than a bishop. It amazes me Paul who was an APOSTLE, NEVER gave any description of ANYONE who desires to be an "APOSTLE". Yet, Fred I would imagine felt he was qualified to be an apostle by his own standards (more ego, if you'd ask me).

      Paul did say however, if a man desire to be a BISHOP, he desireth a good work. Bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

      AND FOR A DEACON - Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

      HE GAVE NO QUALIFICATION for an Apostle.

      If Fred Price is elevated as an apostle, "higher than a bishop", he should be MORE THAN BLAMELESS, and rumors circulating about his committing adultery should even surface.

      I noticed Ms. Brown, you refused to comment on any other part of my post, just the rumor part. YOU SAID nothing about the TRUTH Apostle Price said JESUS Committed suicide. You think the REAL APOSTLES, Peter or Paul, would have said that about their LORD?

      Strange though your twisted ways, you quoted the very verse that contradicted Dr. Price's lie. Jesus did not commit suicide, "NO one taketh it away, but He lay it down".

      No church, and I MEAN no church, is BUILT on faith, when the leader is spreading such LIES about the LORD. This prosperity teacher says falsely, things like -

      "We are in control and God is not! So why pray to him, we might as well pray to ourselves."

      "Jesus was rich. If the Mafia can ride around in Lincoln Continental town cars, why can't the King's Kids?” “That's the reason why I drive a Rolls Royce”.

      I guess he is more elevated than the real apostles, In Acts 3:6 Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

      "God the father cannot do anything in this earth realm without permission."

      "Yes! You are in control! So, if man has control, who no longer has it? God”

      FAITH DOME was built on a egotistical false teacher and lazy congregants who refuse to study the word of GOD. This brute beast and cloud without water impressed to make merchandise of silly folks, selling them lies, and tricked them into giving as he pimped them as merchandise. You better ask the LORD to remove the scales from your eyes Janelle!

    2. Paul did not need to define "appstle." Keep reading the Bible and the definition will reveal itself. Of course if anonymous is just another jealous, hateful person it will neve find the answer. The Bible is an esoteric book of enigmatic knowledge.

  12. Miss Ann,

    There's too much theatrics going on in the church making it hard for believers to revisit and understand the sole duty of man (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

    Price Jr. knew from jump that he wasn't fit to be stepping into this position. He just went with what was acceptable and expected and NOT truth. Mr. & Mrs. Apostle knew their son's weakness but probably hoped it would fade with his new position. Mrs. Price Jr. knew all the above, but probably maintained status quo for the sake of the church (read "family business").

    I suspect someone out there has "receipts" of some situation and was ready to "present". And going by the trend these days, it might not be "Becky with the good hair"...

    Thank God I now know the Bishop and Shepherd of my soul (1 Peter 2:25). I can't be part of praying for another man's mess when our LORD Jesus implores us to pray that we may not enter into temptation (Matthew 26:41). Jr. should know something about this, or does he?

    No more should believers be made responsible for another man's weakness and/or actions.

  13. I am keeping Fred Price, Jr. in my prayers as he steps down temporarily from the FaithDome. My view is that the pressures of pastoring the FaithDome may have gotten to him and caused him to make some immoral judgements. I am very concerned about their attendance when back in the day, they were packed on Sunday mornings. The Price clan needs to come up with a way to bring people back to church and fill those seats. I remember reading the article about the FaithDome back in high school and what Apostle Price did was impressive at the time, but everyone and their churches is trying the "dome" concept.

      Impressive indeed. And that there's such a thing as the "Dome" concept. Pray do tell what this actually means, including reference to scripture.

    3. Some churches have a dome architecture to their sanctuaries and it could come from the architecture of sports arena. This is one big mess and sitting down would be the right thing to do. In Scripture, there is no concept of a megachurch, since they fellowshipped in houses and small gathering places.

    4. TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN---> MUCH IS REQUIRED.

      He did what is appropriate according to the Word.

      He needed to step down. He was in SIN.....regardless of what it was.

      Bravo to a Christian minister for doing what is required.

      We should also thank people who go to work every day and do their job. They are doing what is required.

      This should be nothing special.

      You blow it?? You need restoration.

      What led you to the point of blowing it in the first place???

      Satan wants to destroy everyone.

      Don't gain the church only to lose your own soul in the process.

    5. You always come across like you are so biblical ie. the staement you made saying "he did what was appropriate according to the word". Then when you are asked to further explain, you have nothing to say. I'll give you another chance here, Marsha -what scripture would you reference to conclude he did what was Biblical? Or are you just blowing smoke again?

    6. Galatians 6:1. Read this in any bibical version. He could be already
      Forgiven but stepping down is a process of restoration and strengthing process. We as Christian are subject to fall that's probably why IJohn 2:1-2 was written.

I am praying for your wife to be a strong help meet right now as you go through this break. God will restore everything back to you. There are too many examples in the word. Love you Saints of God and just know that you have true men and women of God praying for you and the family!!

  19. I honestly believe that Jr.'s stepping down had a lot to do with the different examples of life scenarios used by Jr. vs. Sr. of the teaching of doctrines as it relates to our ever changing society that accepts so many unbiblical standards. In other words, there may have been a difference of opinions among Jr. and Sr. as to how biblical teachings are addressed today in comparison with what was addressed when CCC originated back in the 70's. While I do love to hear both Jr. and Sr. teach about the concepts of faith however, I can truly say that Jr. seems to have a more modern approach in getting his message across to the Gen-X,Y,and Z generations (1965-current) as compared to Sr. who may have a stronger connection with Traditionalist and Baby boomers (born before 1946 - 1965) which may not have sat well with Dad or vise-versa. As we all know, Fred Price Sr. is more direct and to the point and as no qualms if he has offended anyone in getting his teaching across. While I do respect both approaches, I can honestly see how this may have caused some discord among the Jr. and Sr. as well as the congregation that is so well-diverse in age. Now, with this being said, I have to make the point that both Jr. and Sr. are fact-based teachers of the written biblical doctrines and their meanings as it pertains to walking in faith and growing in Godliness. Prayer for complete restoration for Jr. as well as the entire Price family is what is needed!!

  20. "I have struggled with (Price breaks down) and am correcting and making amends..."

    I believe Price intended to read the name of his struggle. When he gets to the word, he shakes his head, he can't bear saying it out loud, it's too painful.

    He breaks down for a few seconds, regroups and then leaves the word out of the sentence.

    Jesus can restore!
