Pastor Price of K C Price Ministries urges everyone to fight the good fight of faith.
You do this by developing your own personal relationship with the Lord through spending time in prayer, praise and worship, and the reading of His Word on a consistent basis.
Pastor Price was born January 3, 1932, in Santa Monica, California.
He is the eldest of two sons of Winifred and Fred Price and he has one sister, Delores W. Jones.
Dr. Frederick K. C. Price attended McKinley Elementary School in Santa Monica, Foshay Junior High, Manual Arts and Dorsey High Schools in Los Angeles, and received his AA Degree from Los Angeles City College.
Dr. Price received an honorary diploma from the Rhema Bible Training Center in 1976 and an honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Oral Roberts University in 1982; both institutions are based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
On September 6, 2000 , Dr. Price was the first Black pastor to speak at "Town Hall Los Angeles ". In 1998, he received the prestigious "The Horatio Alger Award", presented by an Alexandria, Virginia-based association honoring those who exemplify inspirational success.
K C Price Ministries also received that year, "The Kelly Miller Smith Interfaith Award", presented by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, honoring clergy who have made the most significant contribution through religious expression affecting the nation and world.
...attending Dorsey High School . They were married in March 1953 and have four children - Angela Marie Evans, Cheryl Ann Price, Stephanie Pauline Buchanan, and Pastor Frederick Kenneth Price, Jr. who plays a major role at K C Price Ministries.
All of the Price children and their spouses (A. Michael Evans, Jr. and Danon Buchanan, Angel Price) work in the Ministry along with Dr. Price. Both, Dr. Fred and Betty Price have five grandchildren: Alan Michael and Adrian Marie Evans; Nicole Denise and Allen L. Crabbe, III; and Tyler Stephen Buchanan.
The marriage of Fred and Betty Price spans over 50 years. The fact that all but one of those years was spent in the ministry is a story in itself.
Before K C Price Ministries Dr. Price was not always a religious man. He was not reared in the church. In fact, his parents were Jehovah's Witnesses who discontinued practicing their faith when Dr. Price was very young. On the other hand, Dr. Betty was a devout Baptist, whose only desire was to please God.
Dr. Price became a regular church member during their courtship. Once they were married, however, he spent Sundays at the baseball diamond. Betty, "knew better," as she puts it, and remained steadfast in her faith, attending church every Sunday.
Within months after they married, a group of Los Angeles area churches sponsored a week of old-fashioned tent revivals. Dr. Price became jealous when he noticed that Betty went to each service. To find out why she went, he decided to go himself.
At that service, Frederick K. C. Price was born-again. Soon thereafter, he and Betty joined a local Baptist congregation. This was the beginning of K C Price Ministries because in that church, Dr. Price says he received the "call" to minister.
He explains, "I heard an audible voice saying, 'You are going to preach my Gospel.' It was like a bomb going off. I believe it was the voice of Jesus Christ, but at that time, I did not know what it was."
During the next 17 years, Fred Price became increasingly dissatisfied with his progress, both personally as a Christian and in learning about the things of God in general. He joined four different denominations, but he only held a pastorate in three of them.
Fred price was an assistant pastor in the Baptist church from 1955 to 1957, then ministered an AME (African Methodist Episcopal) church in Val Verde, CA from 1957 to 1959. He went from there to the Presbyterian Church, then to the Christian and Missionary Alliance in 1965.
During these years of dissatisfaction, Dr. Price searched the Scriptures for the answer. In his earnest desire to be all that God's Word said he should be, he discovered that the power of the Holy Spirit was missing from his life.
of this time. Dr. Price says, "Every time I read the words of Jesus in John 14:12, '. . .the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to My Father,' it left me longing to experience these works.
I was not witnessing these 'greater works' in my own ministry, nor in the ministry of others that I knew, with two exceptions -- Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts."
To add to his mounting frustration, in 1962, Dr. Price's eight-year-old son, Frederick III, was struck and killed by a car while he was coming home from school. This was the most disastrous of many crises in the Price family.
In her book, "Standing By God's Man," Dr. Betty Price remembers, "Fred and I tried to console each other as best we could, and leaned a lot on one another during this time of hurt.
My husband particularly found it hard to get over this tragedy, but he knew -- and continued to say -- that it was not God Who had taken our son from us. Looking back now, we can see how the devil was trying to destroy us as a family."
While Fred Price was pastor for the Christian and Missionary Alliance at West Washington Community Church, he read Kathryn Kuhlman's book, "God Can Do It Again." "It stirred my soul," he says. "This was the missing dimension -- the demonstration of the power of the Spirit of God," or what the Bible terms "the gifts of the Spirit."
...with the evidence of "speaking with other tongues." That is the event that Dr. Price considers the jumping-off point in K C Price Ministries.
Dr. Price was influenced by Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In 1973 K C Price Ministries 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, with over 10,000 seats, it's one of the largest church sanctuaries in the United States . Construction on the FaithDome began in 1986, finished in 1989, and the Dome was dedicated on January 21, 1990 . Currently, the church membership totals over 22,000.
In addition, in 1990, Fred Price founded the Fellowship of Inner City 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.
