AT the end of this week, televangelist Kenneth Copeland declared that God + prayer would combine to save fellow evangelist Frederick K C Price, a COVID-19 sufferer, from death.

Today it was announced that Price, “one of Los Angeles’ most prominent religious leaders” and founder of the Crenshaw Christian Center, fell off his perch aged 89 – just hours after Copeland, who runs the Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries, declared:

Today, I am calling on all members and friends of Crenshaw Christian Center New York and on everyone everywhere who has been touched by the teaching of Apostle Frederick K C Price to join in a worldwide prayer for the Apostle as he faces the health challenges posed by COVID-19.

Apostle Price, who led services in the landmark FaithDome for many years, died Friday evening, according to a statement issued by EIF Ministries.

Price founded the Crenshaw Christian Center in 1973 and built it into one of America’s first Black megachurches, with 28,000 members and an estimated 15 million households watching televised church services every week.

He was at times controversial – criticized for his rants against the LGBTQ community and Islam.

Copeland said:

For almost 50 years, Fred and Betty Price have been wonderful friends of our family. We have laughed together, cried together, and preached together. We’ve stayed in each other’s homes and have watched each other’s children grow up! We have truly lived life together.

The first time I heard Fred Price in person was in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He ran onto the platform and shouted, ‘I am ready Freddy!’ What a man of God! What a man of faith and power! I don’t believe this disease can kill him.

Earlier in the week, Minister Baltimore Scott, a staff administrator for the church’s New York operations, asked supporters to pray for Price who contracted the virus about a month ago.

Today, I am calling on all members and friends of Crenshaw Christian Center New York and on everyone everywhere who has been touched by the teaching of Apostle Frederick K C Price to join in a worldwide prayer for the Apostle as he faces the health challenges posed by COVID-19.

Specifically, we need to pray for the complete restoration of Apostle’s lungs, heart and kidneys and any other parts of his body that are now under attack as he remains in the hospital.

Ironically Price had a YouTube series entitled “Answered Prayer Guaranteed.”
