(CMR) Televangelist Dr. Frederick Price, who started the Crenshaw Christian Center that grew into a megachurch with some 28,000 members in California, has died.
Dr. Price (89) died on Friday after he was hospitalized for the coronavirus.
Price and his wife of 67 years, Betty Price, contracted the virus in January.
He is remembered by many as a very influential minister who has reached millions.
Friends International Christian University describes him as a revolutionary Christian ambassador who was “one of the most prolific and sincere leaders of our generation.”
Bishop TD Jakes said, “Dr. Price leaves a gaping hole in the hearts of those that loved him. I will always remember the long lines wrapped around the Crenshaw Christian Center, hoping to get a seat, unforgettable music with its challenging lyrics asking us, ‘Do you have enough evidence!'”
Price authored some 50 books on spiritual growth, healing, and prosperity. He was also the founder of the KCPIII Elementary, Middle, and High Schools, over 16 help ministries, and the Apostle Frederick Price Ministry Training Institute.
Price is survived by his wife, four children, eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
