A year after he stepped down over “serious personal misjudgments,” Pastor Fred Price Jr. and his wife Angel are expected to return to the helm of the 28,000-member Los Angeles-based Crenshaw Christian Center in California this summer, church officials confirmed Monday.
“We’ve been in anticipation almost from the day that he scheduled his hiatus and everything and so the congregation is even more excited,” CCC Pastoral Executive Assistant Lynne Williams told The Christian Post in an interview Monday. She said Price is expected back in the pulpit sometime in July.
“In the office here, we’re all planning and preparing for his return. We don’t have an exact date or anything but we know that it’ll be sometime this summer. We’re just all in that vein. Every auxiliary, every department, it’s just an exciting time for us, we’re just looking forward to it — he and first lady Angel being back, operating in their role as pastor and first lady,” she said.
Price shocked his congregation last June when he announced that he would be stepping down from ministry due to “serious personal misjudgments” without elaborating on any details. The announcement had come just over eight years after his father, Dr. Frederick K.C. Price, handed over the reins of the megachurch to him in 2009.
“I have struggled with and am correcting and making amends for serious personal misjudgments which have affected my life and my family and which I deeply regret. I have betrayed the trust of God, my family and you my church, and for that I am so sorry. Therefore, I’m gonna step down as pastor at this time,” he said.
A post by the church on its Facebook page earlier this month shows photos of Price and his family addressing the congregation on Easter Sunday with a message that said: “When you have God on your side you have the best! You’re a winner! Jesus is all that we need to live this life victoriously. You can trust God with your life!”
