BCNN1 Editors: It is admirable the way this young man is taking responsibility and doing the right thing in stepping down. It shows respect for God, respect for Jesus Christ, and respect for the church. It is also a testament to Fred Price, Sr., and the elders at that church. We will be praying for him, and we encourage you to pray for him. And, if it is the Lord’s will for him to be restored to pastoral ministry, he will be restored to pastoral ministry. Many pastors in his situation or worse ought to follow this young man’s example.

Fred Price Jr. has stepped down as pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles, CA. The move followed a month of sabbatical.

With his wife Angel standing beside him, he said:

Approximately a month ago I came before you to announce that I would be taking a three-week sabbatical. Well I’m here today to give you an update. I have struggled with…

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.

I have submitted myself to my fathers, our apostles’ plan of restoration, chief among those is I will be attending Sunday service starting next week and throughout the year, so that I can hear the Word and be restored in order to fulfill the call on my life to ministry. In closing I would like to ask that you respect my family’s privacy while we work through this personal situation. I thank you all for the support you have given me. As pastor, I love you all and I solicit your prayers during this difficult time.
